Emily & Leo

I am so exciiiiited about this! (note: read in squealy girl voice!) A very talented young designer (who just happens to be my sister) used a beret I made in her photo shoot! This is for her brand spanking new label Emily & Leo. I knitted the beret using a bamboo cotton mix yarn that was gorgeous - so silky and soft.

I am so proud of my sister and her new label. The clothes have a feel that is classic but with a modern urban edge. I love them!...and have already put huge orders in to be sent over to Istanbul. She is doing such an amazing job - I don't know how she finds the time to do it all! One thing that I think helps a lot is how decisive she is. Something I could definitely work on!

I can't wait to get this pure Australian wool dress and this crop trench I ordered! The range has such gorgeous, high quality fabrics - apart from the Australian wool, she has also used silks, bamboo and organic cotton. Yay for organic cotton!

Beautiful piece of knitting, Verity. Can you tell me what pattern you used? I've been looking for a new hat pattern to try out and I LOVE this one.

The clothes are amazing. Your sister is very talented.
