Fancy a new treat?

We have a new windowdisplay; it is so delicate with a touch of art deco inspiration. The colour-scheme runs in purple, pink, camel and gold! So if you are free this weekend, come down and take a look and tell us what you think:)

Maria in action. What do you think about her cardigan? The cardigan is called "Nordavind" and we have a few left in light blue, grey and light yellow. They are made of norwegian rauma-wool and are perfect for cold autumn days. The beading and lace are sewn on by hand in our sewing-departement. The price is 1250 kr.

The Carousel of Hope

Ok, the big night is on and we are getting ready to look fabulous. We took a morning session at Coco's before heading to the Beverly Hilton to set up for the auction. I'll remind you: The auction is called Carousel of hope and is hosted by Barbra Davis. The money goes to children with diabetes and this year George Clooney is the guest of honor for hs work in Haiti and so on. I am working together with St. Regis Bora Bora. They have donated a wedding package for this event with a value of 250 000,- USD. In this package there is a wedding dress by Cecilie Melli for the bride to choose. I was going to show 8 styles up on stage presented by Jay Leno

Preparing for the BIG event!

We are back in sunny Cali to get some more work done. I am not complaining as it's getting really cold back home so some small rays of sun isn't hurting. Breakfast at Manhattan beach with Kirsti and Victoria.
We are attending the event 'Carousel of Hope'. It's a charity auction for children with diabetes hosted by Barbra Davis and this year George Clooney is the guest of honor. We are working together with the St. Regis Bora Bora resort and offering our wedding dress to a bride that has the winning bid on a wedding package donated by SRBB.

Victoria is giving us a tour around Beverly Hilton Hotel where it's all taking place.

Big fish. Anyone knows if this fish has a name? 

This is all going to be transformed into a auction area for tonight

The ballroom where the dinner and show is at. This is the same ballroom they use for the Golden Globe

Can't wait to see the carousel horses on their feet

After we had lunch with the ladies that are modelling our gowns at the W poolside

So now we're off to a mani-pedi session before starting the work on the models. The event is tonight and I will keep you posted on everything from the inside of 'The Carousel of Hope'.
