    beautiful design Lisa!

  • I do like this one, I had the fabric brought from Tokyo by a Uni friend – I was about 20 years old – I never knew what to do with it. Then 20 years later this was the result, I love it as it reminds me of her, she was the most talent person I ever met, she dropped out to pursue love. Her name was Nicolette and i would one day like to see her again..we were no doubt the alternative fashion victims of that time! When we stood together it was ok to look out there.

    The back of this one is really nice, and the material is very interesting. I loved that about your designs! You had such different materials to what’s usually seen! They were lovely!

  • Thanks Lelia.x

    Yep, really like this pic :)

  • My girlfriend and i (blonde woman, Bridget owns the bar) love to joke that if people see us in reality they will say “Gee what happened to them since those photo’s were taken” ;)

    Good lighting – great photographer – make up artist – BINGO!

    Yes I like the mood of this one Damien.
