In this little body there are some remarkable ideas and a promising talent budding. Silvia Montesdeoca is a self-learned seamstress and fashion designer. Involved in fair trade and environmental care, she grounded WHAT’S IN A DRESS – a sustainable fashion brand. She designs and makes all the garments by herself here in Gran Canaria, using certified organic fabrics, mainly cotton. Moreover, each garment is made custom-size, which meas that if you want to buy any of the pieces which are on offer in Silvia’s online shop, you first need to use a special measurements guide available on the website and she will make the garment especially for you changing any detail you wish, so as to make it unique and more personal.

Detrás de este pequeño cuerpo se esconde un talento prometedor con ideas innovadoras. Se trata de Silvia Montesdeoca una diseñadora y costurera autodidacta. Involucrada con el comercio justo y el cuidado ambiental, formó WHAT’S IN A DRESS – una marca de moda sostenible. Diseña y cose todas las prendas ella misma, aquí en Gran Canaria, utilizando certificadas telas ecológicas, sobre todo de algodón. Además, cada prenda está hecha a medida, lo que significa, que si quieres comprar una de las prendas que están en oferta en la tienda online de Silvia, tienes que utilizar una guía de medidas que está disponible en la página web, y Silvia te hará una prenda especialmente para ti, cambiando cualquier detalle que te guste, para hacer la prenda única y más personal, una exclusividad.

Maximalistic print and minimalistic accesories. Timeless flower print + lace = femininity. Femininity + boots = this season’s must have.

Gran Canaria Moda Cálida Fashion&Friends

Some fresh photos from the Gran Canaria Moda Cálida Fashion&Friends event which is taking place this weekend in Gran Canaria. If you are on the island and have not yet been there, you must go! There are a few dozen stands of local designers and shops which offer some real statement pieces. You can buy stuff on spot or ask for the address and go when you have more time or money or just a better hairday.
Even if you are NOT INTERESTED IN FASHION, but DECO, or like to try delicious, homemade CAKES and GOURMET FOOD, you will definitely find something for yourself too.

My wedding :)

wedding gran canaria

This time I prepared a special treat and decided to share with you some photos from my wedding. We got married in the registry office in Santa Brígida, a lovely village in the mountainous interior of Gran Canaria, about 25 minutes drive from Las Palmas. It is full of typical Canarian buildings with their splendid balconies and there are flowers everywhere. In good weather you get awe-inspiring views from a little square in front of the church. However, when we were getting married, it was cloudy and even raining, but lore has it that rain during the wedding brings affluence to the young couple. So maybe the photos are not too sunny but at least we are going to be rich, ha ha!

Esta vez he preparado una sorpresa especial y he decidido compartir con vosotr@s algunas fotos de mi boda. Nos casamos en el Registro Civil de Santa Brígida, un bonito pueblo del interior de Gran Canaria, a unos 25 minutos en coche de Las Palmas. Está lleno de casas típicas canarias con sus espléndidos balcones y hay flores por todas partes. Cuando hace buen tiempo, tenéis unas vistas impresionantes desde una pequeña plaza en frente de la iglesia. Sin embargo, cuando nos casamos, estaba nublado e incluso lloviendo, pero la sabiduría popular dice que la lluvia durante una boda trae prosperidad y riqueza a la joven pareja. En las fotos no luce mucho el sol (ya que llovía), así que por lo menos vamos a ser ricos, ja, ja!

Post-surf looks

Gran Canaria Surf

Kristin, Alex and Cristopher are all Austrian students enjoying the waves in Las Palmas today. Watersports are fantastic because they make you feel good and… look cool. And I don’t mean only clothes – go to the beach and watch surfers’ bodies…

Kristin, Alex y Cristopher son estudiantes austriacos y han aprovechado hoy las olas en Las Palmas. Los deportes acuáticos son fantásticos porque no solo os hacen sentir mejor, sino también… parecer cool. Y no hablo solo de la ropa – id a la playa y mirad los cuerpos de l@s surfer@s..

This car is not theirs but if it was, it would be an ultimately cool surf look, wouldn’t it?

Este coche no es suyo, pero si lo fuera, tuvieran un look totalmente cool, os parece?
