I'm breaking my no-weekend rule because I just opened a mail from an exceptional designer, Bene, who's opening her Stockholm atelier next Friday, April 27, with her Spring/Summer line for one day. If you're in the Stockholm area, go! If you're abroad, see below for internet information.
Bene studied couture in Paris, knows a girl's figure and makes the entire process feel so easy and fun. She designed the pattern and dress below for a special party I was attending. This was how she worked: I met Bene with a sketch and and several ideas; 1 tailor-made-pattern, 2 weeks and 3 easy fittings later, I had danced the night away in this fantastic silk number!
I first learned about Bene's talents when I admired a friends diaper bag that looked more like a cool purse than a dowdy diaper bag. I swear every mother at our school with a baby, has one of Bene's diaper bags. They look so chic, are functional and she's just launched an on-line site for these popular items. If you're interested, check here called one bag for two.
I think a salute to Mother's with talent is worth breaking my weekend rule.
I am so happy that I can share her with you, too!
