Germany's newest & upcoming designer, and also someone I happen to know! Michele Kirkpatrick will be opening up her new accessory line Michele's Closet September of this year. I'm SO excited for her and totally wished I lived in Germany. We've found each other within the last year and I had no idea she's been pursuing her passion in the fashion world this whole time. Above is a couture hair piece she made herself that I am in LOVE with. When it comes to fashion and style, I'm definitely more into the artful side of things and anything with an edgy and dramatic feel. Her style is amazing and she pretty much does everything so you can call her your personal stylist!
Here is a photo of her inside SenCy Boutique in Turkey where she worked as a stylist and had an all day photo shoot for the boutiques advertising. She did hair, makeup, wardrobe and assisted the model.
Photo on the left is Michele fixing the hair of the model while she works on the photo shoot in Turkey. She asked me to make her a necklace & matching set she can wear when she celebrates her new accessory line. Of course I accepted! I have 2 months to get the set together. She sent me photos of what she had in mind and I will try my best to design it to her liking. I'm just really excited because I love supporting other people who are ambitious and who 'Skip the baby steps and just take one big jump'. There's no room for errors or working in progress when it comes to wanting to stand out from others and finishing on top.
So I was pretty excited yesterday when I finally got my goodies in the mail. Here's a photo of what I'm looking at before putting Kathy's bracelet together. She wants black, silver and a little maroon. I have her requested charms ready and a photo of her boys! I can't wait to see how this turns out. She's also the buyer of my 'Bronze Hearts' set! I have a mixture of plastic, glass and Swarovski beads. I'm also thinking about using dark silver spacers to add a classic touch. This is probably a bracelet she plans on wearing with basic outfits so I think adding an aged look to it would be great."The difference between false memories and true ones is the same for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant." -Salvador Dali
