Fashion design position and or investor hunt



I'm on the look out for a design position or investor! 


Until I find one, and one finds me, I will continue to create secret items that do not have the funding to be produced, while wearing sea and flower outfits.  


I have qualifications and experience, as well as an intense passion for designing woman's ready to wear/high fashion, accessories, jewelry, textile prints, and millinery.   If you are interested in investing to see my aesthetic thrive or adding to your team of creatives, I promise you endless ideas, and gigantic library of techniques and concepts.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at ldvnicole@gmail.com

The Wallace collection revisited







Since I was very little, I have been obsessed with museum shops.  I always wondered why they never made affordable copies of the magical and relevant small pieces from the exhibitions.  It's always nerdy things like mirrors and pencils.  Finally my dream came true, and the gift shop had a section with rows and rows of affordable jewellery inspired by Georgian, Medieval, and Victorian pieces!!!!!!!   

When ever I would like to celebrate anything, I am going there with some friends to help clear the section, instead of nerdy (expected) celebratory drinks!   

I am going to be wearing all of the earrings (above) way too much!


I have done a heavily documented post already about the Wallace collection!
