Well as you can see we have not posted here in a while and that’s because we have been busy, busy, busy. Busy with what you might ask…..well here is what we have been up to.
- We just got back from two buying trips one in NYC and one in Paris. Both trips I obtained some amazing pieces, and Paris was just full of inspiration. You will find the NYC pieces starting to pop up in new listings. The Paris items I will be doing a limited edition set of earrings and necklaces with. I will let you know when this happens as the collection is very limited and will not be in any shops and limited shows. The pieces are from the Saint Ouen flea market and are all vintage. The glass colors are amazing and metals have the most beautiful patina.
The red orange hue section.
The vintage metals, and their wonderful Patina.
About a month ago we had a photo shoot with the great photographer Stephanie Colgan . Stephanie has done everything from New York Fashion week to Bonaroo. It was a pleasure to work with Stephanie and I cant wait to incorporate her amazing work into our new website and promo materials.
A Sneek Peak of how the day went.
Well it seems like a while ago, but only a few short months ago we participated in our first fashion show, Voltage Fashion Amplified. The show went off without a hitch and we received great press about our collection and how nicely it paired with Ivan Idland’s designs. Ivan and the whole voltage crew were amazing to work with and I cant wait to apply for it next year. (Maybe we will even do a couple smaller shows in between now and then.)
We have gotten into several stores lately (shop section to be updated soon.) It has been such a blessing to see our work in so many new retail establishments and all of them seem to be going so well. Thanks so much Creatures Boutique, Elodie, Hill Valley Boutique, Nomad Piercing, and Cliche.
We have been doing our usual very busy summer show circuit, starting of the season with art a whirl. From now til the end of the summer season you will see us at the Uptown Market, Highland Fest, Caffeto Craft Fair, Red Hot Art, Powderhorn Art Fair, Glensheen, Soundtown Music Festival, and Jesse James Days. Each show will have new and exciting items you can not find on the etsy shop.
Our biggest announcement however and our biggest change is, I will be renaming the business which will result in a new website and just a new us. After lots of hard consideration we will no longer be called Lefthand Originals, but Larissa Loden. As my business grows I have realized how important it is for me as a designer that people know my name. Chanel, Dior, Marc Jacobs would not be where they are today if it were not for a little name recognition. Some of you may have already noticed the new tags on our jewelry, and that’s just the start. I hope to have Larissa Loden fully operational by the end of July and a new collection to be revealed with the official name change. So stay tuned for more exciting information on this huge endeavor, because Yes there is more news.
Thanks so much everyone for their continued support and love of our designs we could not do this without you!
