Hi! I’am Lera, a young designer of clothes and bags from Minsk. The day you’ll see is the day before the Big Fashion Market in Minsk where our Belorussian designers show their works. That’s why the whole day is my preparations for the market, business meetings and not only. So a lot of fashion is inside the post. ))
Morning never starts too early )) I may go to bed late but I think I don’t have to get up when it’s still dark outside.
Sleepy yawning morning look.
The following actions are unchangeable – teeth, eyes (those who have weak eyesight must understand), and, by the way, my new love – new Bielita cream based on thermal water – very pleasant smell and seemingly good effect.
To my surprise, the weather in Minsk, like in Europe, is warm, a bit winter chilly, but there is no snow or frost – so cool – I may wear a light overcoat. I hope I’ll make it this week
In the morning – coffee and internet, of course. Which of you don’t turn on your PC firstly in the morning? ))
Due to constant work and lack of time my room is a mess. I have to do it now.
I have made some new bags.
Due to the tomorrow event I receive arrangement instructions, information about collection orders and I’m trying to copy with everything. Besides, I have to finish 4 bags more for the market. Quilt and make a lining for all.
The bags are of brown and bottle color, so I have to change threads for stitches. The most trendy colors this season! )
The organizer is calling to discuss my location at the market.
Slowly starting to make bright linings =) I have to cut everything out and make inner pockets.
Time to have dinner but I’m too busy.
They have made fliers for the event with a photo of a new collection, but the print is not legible – we’ve noticed that when 900 pcs have been already printed! ))) But our girls are the prettiest!
Interlining has been brought, I have to cut and give out everything. )
Everything is done in a hurry, cause we are late a bit – I put on a military khaki dress – I have liked this style lately. =)))))) We have to leave immediately for “Paradise” store – I promised to decorate their and our stands with photographs. We are still working with the interior, that’s why we are at the preparation stage yet. But I believe it’s gonna be beautiful!
Haste eating, I won’t show you views of Minsk, I have to do a lot of work.
I drop in this store where I meet Ira Boytik – a fashionable Belorussian designer. She smiles and advertises our dresses.
And we start decorating the wall over the clothes.
I was brave enough to climb a stepladder and I hung everything well. Eagle eye! =))))
We have also decorated our stand with the photos.
I have to fix rivets to two dresses, what I am doing here.
Forgot to show you time, here it is.
I have a guest – Nastya – she has to decorate all the dresses with brooches and hang them.
Nastya has new beautiful leather brooches and hairpins =) I am licking my lips in anticipation and choose something for myself.
Playing the fool a bit, I have nothing to do right now.
Now we have to promptly go to the place of the event, to assemble a rack, hang everything and decorate a garnish molding. Nastya keeps working and I bother them all. )
Look how beautiful it’s gonna be!
We were lucky because our parents were in the theater, 100 m from us, and could take us home.
The first thing at home is the Internet again! )) It’s already late, but I have to do much and my working night only begins.
My sister and her baby in Skype.
Making the bags. You remember I have to finish them today!
The advantage of living with parents – the child is never left hungry. ))
The bags are almost ready!
For the market some leather belts are to be made, to complete the dresses in the collection. I am looking for suitable leather pieces.
I wanna sleep but I can’t ((
I am cutting the leather, fixing rivets and buttons.
My hands are black after the leather!
New day has begun but i’m still awake!
While my hair is drying, I finish with the accessories for the bags and, like a real girl, I’m polishing my short nails before the important event.
I set an alarm clock for 8 o’clock, the event will start at 9.
