nichole de carle

Nichole de Carle is amazing! I just learned of her through the Bleach Black blog. She specializes in fit and has worked as a tailor for labels such as Alexander McQueen, Donna Karan and Pleasure State. I love the strappy architectural lines created around the body.

dark and beautiful

Just some beautiful images I found on, first published in V magazine (Fall 2008). I'm keeping these for my archive of inspirations...

the sweetest things...

Some of the sweetest things are hand-written postcards...I received this one from the most awesome hairstylist I know, Sarah Valentine! I recently sent her a couple of flesh. camisole and panty sets for having done such beautiful work on my models at Je Reve Encore. Check out her blog at Thanks for the lovely note Sarah glad you like your gift!!

webby site

I'm making it my goal for the next month to work on my website in which I can feature and sell flesh. As I sit here with my mood board I feel like an element is missing to help inspire me.....well, until this song came on...this is the mood of flesh.

rustic rust lace, dark silky charmeuse and pixie peter pan collars

I've been wanting to take some process photos of this one. I had a sketch of this set sitting around for months. Finally I had a chance to finish it. The rust colored lace is unique in that it's more soft to the touch compared to your typical lace. The peter pan collar creates a deep neckline at the center front and is made of black silk charmeuse. Trimmed in black scalloped elastic, the silhouette is a trapeze shape with a hook-n-eye closure at the collar. The bikini bottom is made of this rust colored lace and black silk charmeuse. I should have these available by Valentine's Day 2011!!! hopefully on my new online shop.....!!

let the accessories do the talking

I'm not sure how I missed this one but I just noticed it while sifting through J Crew's sale site (extra 30% sale off items). Is it the feathers? the ribbon? the jewels? the deep rich green color? or the fact that you could throw this over a t-shirt and look fabulous still? Please excuse me while I obsess over this...

i'm back!

Hello my lovelies!!

I have to apologize for my lack of posts over the past few months and any excuse I have are just excuses. If you have come across my facebook page for flesh. you'll understand a little bit more of what's going on. At the moment, I'm in production mode for a week to restock items at Wonderland SF, preparing for another Chillin' Productions trunk show on December 4th, and compiling content for my website.

For now I'd like to share another Fashion Network find, the Spring/Summer 2011 Cushnie et Ochs show.

fashion network

So I've finally joined the rest of the world and obtained an IPhone. Naturally I've been non-stop in search of cool apps and such. One I found today is the Fashion Network app which compiles a list of all kinds of current runway shows. AND upon that discovery I came upon another...Junko Shimada. Check out her A/W 10/11 show and prepare yourself for some major swoonage!


I remember first coming across over a year ago. At the time, although having a super cute aesthetic, I personally thought it had some improvements to make on the site. Month after month I noticed those improvements - the look of their site, their selection in product and their over all presence on the web seemed to have grown. Well, here you have, I received a new issue of Inc. 500 today and ModCloth is ranked 2nd in the top 500 of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The rankings were based on a three-year growth from 2006 to 2009. Congrats to ModCloth! Oh, and here's an Entrepreneur article on the young and fabulous creator Susan Gregg. They certainly need to be added to my "retail fix list". I just wish I can get my hands on one of their vintage items just once before it sells out!

ruffles galore

Ruffles EVERYWHERE!!! I especially love the sheer pieces - flesh tones and black <3!

Friday, July 2, 2010


In a recent post I had jumped the gun and shared a piece that I was working on (a new item to the flesh. collection). Well I just finished yesterday and I'm quite pleased with the results. The godets I added in chiffon gave just the right amount of flare at the hem of the cape. I believe it also helped give more weight to the skirt of the cape so that it actually stays on your shoulders better.  For the fashion fabric I used a dark pinkish mauvey colored velvet with a black speckled print, the lining is made of silk charmeuse. See it touch it feel it try it only at Wonderland SF!
