scratching the surface.

they say time heals old wounds. time did fuck all. it's all you.
let me re-introduce the situation. Maiden is the label, created once upon a time as a creative outlet. it made its way around town and even jumped a few continents. this blog is my personal visual diary. i compile alot of pieces of paper, clearly i do the same with jpegs. the job does not pay that well, but i get a kick out of making things look visually appealing. at least i'm not stuck behind a desk. the passion lies within designing, not creating cheap rip offs of your dream dress. it's quite offensive really. i'm in awe of a furry faced hippie, he is the epitome of life. the beauty of it is that he doesn't even know it. and as for love, i heard it exists. but then again, nothing lasts forever. let the inspirational journey begin. New York, London, Paris, i'll let you be my drug. if i say no to you this year, don't take it personal. i'm just being selfish, i'm entitled to it.

the second degree.

 the work i left behind.
gradient grecian bridesmaid dresses x2
for Fadhila.

hit and run.

it's a bittersweet feeling being on holidays for 3 weeks, but then not being able to be at work to prep up and install the new season windows. i did as much as i could inspiration wise to help with styling the NYC themed run. also got the younger brother and his mate to do some pieces in three windows. with no budget towards this window launch, it's going to be a hit or miss, but this is the first window run that the team's suggestions and ideas were really heard and put into consideration. i can't wait to see the end result. windows open on the 30th January. the catalogue is a hoot and hopefully so will the execution of the windows!

p.s waiting around the airport is not fun.
