Custom Made Haunted by Belle Laide

Posted in Fashion with tags , , , , on August 22, 2014 by Lucy February

At Haunted by Belle Laide I am making one off pieces and designs from found, upcycled materials, unique or made to order luxury items, with no piece exactly the same, just like a finger print.

I have used swarovski crystals, gilded shells, faux pearls and real, broken timepieces, stone, wood, vintage jewels to create my custom pieces. The photos are samples of my work and are for sale, but I can also be contacted for bespoke orders for statement designs, brides, performance of women’s wear, knitwear, millinery, jewelery and other accessories.

As a diffusion line of sorts, a sister to Belle Laide, I have set up an Etsy shop called Haunted by Belle Laide. It is there I shall sell my designs of one off special pieces, made to order oddities, costume jewellery, hats. Be Haunted and visit my Etsy shop
;

All photos were delightfully modelled by the actress Lucy Parkinson and photographed by Susannah Hellden; the MUAH/styling/designs are al mineminemine! Ha.

Behind the Scenes of a Taste of Belle Laide

Posted in Fashion, Styling with tags , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2014 by Lucy February

The first Belle Laide photo shoot occurred the other day, with Lucy Parkinson modelling the edit of pieces beautifully. Sussannah Hellenden took the photos which will be posted in the near furture, but for now I have some shots behind the scenes of some of the work of the evening.

There are 3 sweaters in either pure Merino yarn or a mix of Merino, Wool, Lurex; a tank top in Cashmere and Merino yarn; a pure Merino long scarf with the zig zag design and handmade tassles and one multi coloured long scarf in a mix of the selection of yarns, including tassles in gold Lurex yarn.

I did the MUAH and fashion styling on the shoot.

A Taste of Belle Laide

Posted in Fashion with tags , on February 21, 2014 by Lucy February

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Belle Laide  knitwear look book and capsule collection will not be possible as planned for this February/ Autumn & Winter season. Some pieces are in the process of being finished and later photographed, more as a taster proceeding the capsule collection; which will necessarily be pushed back till September for Spring Summer.

Oh My Goodness I’ve only just seen this from a competition I’d entered after graduating;

Nice to know in hindsight at least….

Belle Laide

 I am happy to say that I have my own label on the way.

I am in the process of launching a capsule collectionfor my soon to be launched fashion knitwear brand, Belle Laide.
Using the meaning Beautiful Ugly from the French Belle Laide, the designs and brand ethos will reflect creating a fascination for something not purely beautiful in the usual or common value of these things, something a little jarring or even ugly but wholly attractive to those with the right kind of eyes.
The knitwear will be made from luxe yarns such as merino, cashmere, lambswool, but with the ocassional burst of the man made, metalllic or plastic to give it a little kick.
The first capsule collection will be launching in spring 2014 for A/W with a concise edit of looks as a launch, with a gradual expansion with each season.

A website will be online soon and look books due for February.
