I will start this post by saying that something new is coming! It's my first time talking about this project here on the blog, and I don’t know exactly where to start. The more I talk or type about it, the more I realize it’s happening and it’s not anymore just a dream in my head.
So, at the end of 2018, beginning of 2019 I was “ready” (or so I thought) to start my first ever personal project. Nothing in big proportions, but still for me it was a big deal… clearly I was not ready the way I though, more likely I knew what I wanted to create but not ready to pursue it … and I put it on hold for a while. When the pandemic started in March 2020 and most of us summed up many things on personal and professional life, I realized that Now is the time! It’s now or never! Of course it was the worst time to start a business even a small one with everything on hold, lockdowns globally, breakdowns on many levels and two small kids at home.
Somehow I decided not to wait anymore. So this time I really started and I will say it, I had many moments of “maybe now is not a good time” but I also recognized that time doesn’t wait to be good, it just is or it isn't, and I had to try to make it right for me…
At first I didn’t tell many people, just the ones that I had to work with to make it happen and now I am ready (after another year and a half) to tell you that Bittersweet Collars (@bittersweetcollars), my ultimate dream handmade capsule collection is coming very soon. The shop is launching this week on Saturday October 9th at 11am est.
Feminine floral prints collars in Liberty London Tana Lawn 100% cotton are for me the fashion accessories that I dreamt of for quite some time now! It’s all in the details because I wanted something very detailed and somehow “precious”. I didn’t want to create just another garment, but more like a versatile wearable piece of art that completes a simple outfit.
Soon, I will tell you more about the concept, fabric, colors and styles but for now I leave you with this look, a prototype collar that I shot last Spring (when I initially thought I will lunch the line). The shop is launching this week on Saturday October 9th at 11am est.
I hope you like it and I look forward to share more details starting with next week!
