A peek behind the scenes Part 1

Behind the scenes of the Nadinoo SS10 shoot

It's difficult to think that almost this time last week we were running around one of Munich's theater halls finding cute spots to shoot the SS10 collection. It was such a lovely venue with great backdrops aplenty to shoot against. Here are a few sneaky pics I took throughout the day, our adorable model Kirstin Elfelt did such a wonderful job. She worked so well with the new look of the collection and put on a brave face despite the winter chill.  Since then we have moved to sunny London and unpacked into our cute new apartment with adjoining studio. I feel so at home already with the Flower and Broadway market just a few steps away. In true British style the rain has been persistent but my rose tinted glasses are securely fastened while I enjoy each and every minute.


Before I forget the Nadinoo online boutique is now up and running again, with half price delivery within the UK. I hope to start catching up on orders tomorrow morning, and will be sending out some special offers via the mailing list within the next few days.


Be sure to pop by later on this week when I will be posting Part 2 of the behind the scenes, can't wait to launch the new collection!

Happy Valentine's day!

14/02/2010

To all those in love and celebrating this rather mushy day, I hope you are doing something wonderfully romantic and feeling super special. My fiance will fly in tonight from the UK, can't wait to see him. Our apartment seems so bare and empty without him, although I'm sure all the packed boxes waiting for the move are not helping... Anywho I digress, this post was to announce the wonderful winner of the Red bow dress. So the winning comment in response to "why you would look so damn cute in it" came from Sara, a fun lady from Costa Mesa CA, US who said:

"I have never owned a red dress before! I've never been attracted to one enough to until I spotted this beauty! I would wear it with black heels - maybe boots - and spin around in a circle. My boyfriend will think I have finally cracked. I would have to remember to wear decent underwear in case they showed while I was spinning. That is how happy I would be and that would make me so damn cute - hopefully as cute as all of you other girls who want to wear it!"

A huge congrats to you Sara, I hope you enjoy all the twirling in your new dress!
Choosing one winner was so difficult, there were so many wonderful comments that really brightened up my mornings so thank you all for entering! Hopefully we can offer another pretty dress with the launch of the Spring collection. 

Please note our Nadinoo boutique will be closed while we are in the midst of our move, you are welcome to pre-order styles for when we re-open again in March. Just send me an email with the style and size and I will activate it for you.
