rennes summer 2011




















































Model: Yoshie Hozumi
Photos: Me

More of the new collection can be seen here, and even more images in the new shop, which is open!

It was hard narrowing down from the photos from this past weekend, but these are some of my favorites. Yoshie did such an amazing job modeling - I was happy to be able to work with her - we've known each other since 8th grade so it was very special to me to be able to do this, as she lives in NYC now and we only see each other a few times a year. I'm really happy with how it all turned out and am glad to finally be able to share it with you!

Oh, and didn't I mention? I have a new website! A while ago I contacted Kate about re-making my site, and I couldn't be more happy with what she came up with. She was such an great person to work with on the project and I would really recommend her! Jesse also helped with some of the coding the layout in the shop; as while I try to understand html and css, he's much better at it than me!

Additional information about the shop:

+Most items are in stock and ready to ship out, some are made to order. I'm hoping I can shorten my made to order turn around time to 1 week instead of the usual 2-3 weeks. After you place an order I will contact you for a better estimate.

+For the first time in a while I am selling two pieces of clothing - the Enkidu dress and Enlil shirt - two things you may have seen before. Due to my wearing many hats in running this little business, these items are only available in one size. I'm sorry about that, I wish I had had more time to make more sizes, but for now that's all I have. So if you are a size 4 or a small 6, and have been wanting one - yay! These items are made to order and are final sale, so check your measurements carefully against the listed ones. Bags and accessories are available for exchange as per normal.

Feel free to email me with any questions, and hope you all have a great week!

*Edit - I realize in my haste to get everything up yesterday, that there was some information I forgot to post! A few of you have asked about different items in the shoot - haha, yes! The shoes are all Dieppa's. This honestly did not occur to me until after the fact - I was just grabbing all the shoes I had that looked summery and matched! After this it occurred to me that I have quite the shoe addiction. Oh well - live and learn. The skirt I also made as a remake of a long skirt I made back in 2008, it's worn with a Souchi knit tank. The light jeans are from Madewell from about a year ago. I also made the short sleeve linen pocket dress. Other than that I think that's all the other items in the shoot! *

The new site looks great. And the collection, and the styling. Where do I start? The combination of colours are beautiful lots of neutrals with a splash of teal, pink and denim. And that dress! I adore the little pleat in the back. What a find that linen fabric was.

I notice that those new DRs made it into the shoot. You do love them, don't you.

I was briefly acquainted with Yoshie's younger brother here in Vancouver! He was very kind, and I'm sure she is too! What a small world :)

Kim said...

Beautiful, Julia! I love everything! My personal favorites are the Enkidi dress and denim duffle (the texture of that leather paired with the design of the bag)! Yoshie looks so elegant too. I hope that you are so proud of yourself!

I would consider myself a 4, but the dress fits your model so well and she's looks tiny... Gotta go scope out the measurements. :)
