Last week I made a bag in cream and grey, with some sculpted floral detailing, and lined in polka dots on the inside. When it was done, it made sense that it would join the growing Minku Bridal Collection.
I used to think bridal had to be some otherworldly unattainable and angelic item in the league of this Alexander McQueen dress from last season. Burton may have made this awesome dress in chin-to-toe feathers, but since working in white leather last month, I decided that I enjoyed the feeling of creating something romantic and special too much to wait for Minku to attain the budget of a couture house like McQueen. I figured I would focus on designing bridal bags that are lovely, and that exude romantic awesomeness.
So what I’ve tried to create is a one-of-a-kind little leather darling that I hope will make someone very happy, bride or not :-) And while we’re on the topic of brides, what do brides store in their purses on their wedding day? A pen to sign a lifelong agreement? Some lip gloss? A cell phone from which to tweet ‘I’m now Mrs.’? Your thoughts would be very welcome.
Do you like my black nail polish? It was a birthday gift from the lovely Mahima. I love it. My scrawny nails get some goth love.
