I first found the designs of Masato on Twitter where I  had my first glimpse of his terrific designs. Since then I have been following the Japanese designer on line until a few weeks ago when I was able to meet him while he was in Yorkshire with his partner Mike.
Between us we decided that as Masato will be at Manchester Fashion Week in April next year it would be great for me to have the dress in my shop and spread the Masato word in the north of England.
It is hand made and as beautiful inside as out and I have taken a close up of the floral fabric which is silk.

These gorgeous photos (first 3) have been take by Ed Chadwick who runs Snug Gallery here in Hebden Bridge and is my shop neighbour.

So that just leaves me to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a big thank you for following my blog.
I'll be back in the new year with new designs my beret shop and no doubt other news.

Blue Tweed Check

I couldn't resist buying this small piece of wool tweed even though there was only enough for this clutch bag and a couple of other items.
The colours are just beautiful, the little change purse or card holder is an added extra surprise inside.

It's just been put out for sale in the shop, I wonder who might find it under their Christmas tree.?

Pink Lambswool Liberty print slippers


There seems to be quite a few little people in my life at the moment so I have made a couple of pairs of lambswool slippers. I think I bought the pattern from Etsy quite some time ago but this is the first time I have used it. Pink lambswool is lined with liberty print tana lawn cotton and I have edged them with blanket stitch.
The pink beads are her initial Eloise. The other pair are in deep blue and have gone to the Netherlands for baby Noam.

Embroidered Silk Clutch with French Knots


Sometimes a very simple design looks so good just because the fabric is so beautiful. This simple clutch is just that, made from embroidered silk with french knots. I have lined it in smooth dupion silk too.
