Every day is a party

Remember that one of how life is to short to stay unnoticed. Or how you can never be overdressed. But looking good will also always make you feel better, and even more confident.

It was no different when I put up this almost 20's inspired style to attend garden party that was taking part on one of those still hot summer days.

In fact, the party was in celebration of my grandmother's birthday, and the sparkly knitted dress I was wearing was no-one else's creation then hers. The long lost legacy I've only got my hands on at the end of last year, when a family friend found 3 of these sparkly creations while moving their homes.

To note, the dress is older then me and at beginning of 90's this sparkling style seemed to be very popular. When my grandmother retired, she picked up a side business creating such dresses and tops for some London boutiques that were reselling unique designs.

Even though her fashion brand only started then, she was no stranger to the trade. She was creating unique wear for her entire life, starting by helping her mother who was a professional seamstress, and continuing by designing pieces for many relatives and friends.

Even though majority of sparkling pieces is gone, I still have dozens of sweaters, skirts and other things made by her from the scratch, and still even some created by my great grandmother.

She has surely been my biggest inspiration on my way to pick up fashion design myself and thrived to create unique pieces that you couldn't find anywhere else (which weren't the most wearable on many occasions). I'm planning to collect images of them to a little exposition that you can check out here (website is still in developing).
