Fleur's Penna Dress by Nadinoo

It's so nice making our designs in alternative prints, my new favorite is Fleur's Penna dress in the Green/Yellow colour way now available here. I really think it brightens up a day like today!

If you would like one of our designs in a different print from our collection, just let us know and we can make you your very own custom Nadinoo dress.

The SS11 collection is finally in progress, thanks for all your kind suggestions on how to bring Summer into the studio. We put up the first images on our inspiration wall which has got the ideas flowing. I hope these pics give you a teensy flavour of what's to come..

It's been wet and grey here in Manchester this week which has made designing the new Summer collection a little difficult. Thinking about turning up the heat and pretending Summer is just round the corner.

Hope you enjoy these snaps from the last roll of film, the new studio is slowly taking shape so I will be taking plenty more in the coming weeks.

A belated Happy New Year!

Merry Chrimbo & New Year
Photo by Nadinoo 

I have been meaning to send out well wishes for the New Year but as always I've been busy working away at the machines. Hope you all enjoyed a great New Years Eve and have made some winning new years resolutions. I have to say I'm really pleased with how I've already put a few into action, the first being to finally re-ignite my love for photography. This pic above was taken by your's truly in our Manchester apartment, I'm still in love with our enchanted tree and refuse to take it down until he begins to look a little sad. I was lucky enough to be handed down this darling vintage camera and have been snapping away like crazy ever since to discover all that it can do. It is certainly a work in progress but I hope this year to share with you more of what takes place behind the scenes of Nadinoo, so you can see all the work and love that goes into each and every garment.

Other new years resolutions have resulted in a Rock it belly dancing class, swimming lessons and less chips from Linda's cafe. Would love to hear what you have in store for 2011!
