Disaya Swan Lace, Cut Out Sleeves Dress – this is a fabulous dress which will create a chic level of luxury when worn. Features crochet cut out sleeves in the signature Disaya swan lace.
3. How can we incorporate these looks into our wardrobes from 2007? Especially if we have a wardrobe filled with pretty dresses?
Summer is always about the dress. The dress can take you from day to night and a cropped jacket complete the look. Mixing neutral dresses from winter with colorful accessories will help you stretch out your winter wardrobe.
Light camis are great over strap dresses; they provide a skirt and cami look. Light layering provides various styling options and allows you to be creative when waking up each day.
4. Tell us a little bit about Le Black Book, what inspired you to become a luxury online retailer?
Le Black Book has been created to fill a gap in the online women\’s e-tail market.Â With a background in the industry and a passion for fashion buying, I wanted to create a new shopping luxury shopping experience that inspired women and men of the world.Â The next step of fashion branding outside the retail realm is the internet portal. Many women are time poor and often rush about shopping, ultimately not finding the product they desired. At Le Black Book, I have catered to business women, mothers, students and of course the manic lives of those who work in the fashion industry.
Fashion is here to inspire women and I have selected Australasian designers that excite customers male or female. I have selected key pieces from each designer\’s collections; ensuring customers remain passionate about their shopping experience.
