The initial design - one shoulder evening dress with side flowy scallop

We made it ‘possible’ for our client to dress stunningly in her prestigious Award Ceremony event, and we were over the moon to re-create a modest look on this purple dress which was initially a one shoulder dress. She was absolutely pleased with the design, workmanship and fit her perfectly! (Aww hugs, thank you so much dear!) Let’s hear it from her and indulge in the purple beauty..

“…Talking about the dress, actually I dah siap tempah lama, all the way from UK :-) First time tengok blog my friend DD (, sangat tersentuh hati cheeewahhh!! I want this one!! WAJIB! MESTI!! Then start contact Carol (the owner of DD). She guided me how to take measurement etc. DONE!! Just in few weeks time, it's already delivered on my hand. PERFECT!!!! I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH!! ”

Versatile yet Elegant

How many times have you looked into your closet and thought, “I have nothing to wear.” I think most of us ‘woman’ will say this every time we plan to go for a function or night outs. One of the top 10 essentials every woman should have in her closet is a gorgeous evening dress (apart from your black LBD)! I consider a wardrobe essential if I have the following attributes and I advocately use them as my personal rule of thumb:
1. It must be versatile. This is the most important quality of an essential piece of clothing when I choose my evening dress. One key factor in versatility is colour!

Team up this evening dress with swanky pair of stilettos & you will be all set to sashay around in style. Contact us at, we can help to custom made your dress


2. It has to be of good, perhaps even exceptional, quality. A wardrobe essential makes a statement, and anyone looking should be able to tell that it’s top shelf. High quality also means that it wears well — very important for a garment that you’ll rely on again and again.

3. It should be in a classic style. You don’t want your wardrobe essentials to ever really go out of fashion.

Black evening dress - versatile for any formal function

No doubt having a beautiful evening dress in order to steal the thunder of the evening is every woman's hidden fantasy. There are various occasions where we need to have at least one evening dress for an important event like an award ceremony, formal evening events etc. What is more important - a woman should dress up to create her personal style statement (not just people around you!).
Colours like red make you look fantastically edgy. You can try a red coloured ruche dress featuring a deep V neckline and side cut outs. Such a pattern would be absolutely apt for a grand shindig. The ruche texture looks amazingly unconventional and is sure to make you look like a million bucks.

If you are fond of subtle embellishments, you can opt for a dress with an aesthetic stone studded embellishment. A colour like ivory and nude pink sure to complement your graceful feminine persona to the hilt. Team it up with swanky pair of stilettos and you will be all set to sashay around in style. Even Grecian styled dresses have their own charm. They truly have struck a chord with fashion enthusiasts across the board. One shoulder dresses will look extremely chic on women who have a penchant for unconventional styles.

ZARA does its thing!


We have tweeted and posted the ZARA teaser in our PS assignment recently and as usual, ZARA - the Spanish international fashion brand always does its thing and yes, super-gorgeous collection for this Spring/Summer 2012 in their outlets here (not sure if they have released the same thing in Asia) to grab.

I am a huge fan of ZARA – high fashion trends, the fact that they are dominant on the catwalks, the textiles, silhouettes and detailing almost similar to newly released designer labels (most of the time!). They have gorgeous pieces from clothing to shoes to accessories and have hit the trends bang on the head.


Ready to be opened!


Let’s take a sneak peek what we have here..
