My name is luisa dawn d`arte and I am a fashion designer, model, singer and dancer. My shop is on a website called ETSY. The name of the shop is Luisa dawn operadarte I have my own woven design fashion label.. My shop is be-spoke and ususally there will only be one of its kind ever for sale. I was a fashion designer some years ago, and had a audience with the late great Moschino in his Milan studio, where he gave me untold sound advice with regard to fashion. I carry that round in my heart to this very day! i also have a genuine photograph that was taken inside of his studio, where he poses shoulder up, naked with a woman silloquette in the background. I am going to do a limited edition of prints, when I begin to stock the house hold section. My shop is for men, woman, children and home merchandise. Each section is labelled seperately. The mens section is aimed for men who want to wear a more flamboyant, avante garde, unique style, who want clothes to make a statement. I like to work with fine lace, and many of my shirts are edged in fine lace, and some of their special features have fine lace interwoven into pleats on various parts of the garments. Each garment has been created with passion and love, where I have captured an idea and transported it into a physical vision, Some of my garments have a fun factor, some elegant and some just scream that they want to be worn! Each garment has a unique woven luisa dawn fashion label attached on the inside. Enjoy X
