blooming leopold fall/winter 2011

blooming leopold a/w 2012


After months of scheming and sewing, here it is.. today is the debut of a new look for the Blooming Leopold blog, as well as my fall/winter 2011 handmade collection! Autumn jumpers in brown tweed, organdy pintuck blouses, and bell sleeved velvet dresses.. pieces I've been making and storing up to share with you today.

All pieces will be made to order and are available in black velvet, brown tweed wool, ivory and black organdy, and corduroy (some fabric - including the floral corduroy - is limited stock so first come, first served!). Items hit the shop tomorrow, September 14, at noon CST. More photos here, friends.

Special thanks to these wonderful people.. shot at the Historic Rock Castle in Hendersonville, modeled by Maria Elba and video (coming soon!) by AJ Gibboney. An extra thank you to Neil, who helped out immensely by fixing gin fizzes, lugging around camera equipment, and encouraging me all the way through. And congrats to Christy, the giveaway winner this week!

Happy Tuesday!
