Some weeks ago we shared with you our Abyssal cuff and asked for your support in order to make it the winning design for this year’s Concurso de Diseño de Joyas de Autor AJA (AJA Designer Jewelry Design Contest).
We want to thank your unconditional support, without it we would have never won this prize.
On April 2014 we wrote a blog post about the first collection of Royal Couture. We do not publish two reviews about the same designer very often, but Mª Ángeles Guisado is someone we admire: a creative and brave entrepreneur who deserves to succeed.
Royal Cuture has recently presented the Crow King Collection, targeted to a mysterious and daring woman. With dramatic lines, it is inspired by the black cinema divas and ‘Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell’ – the Susanna Clarke novel. Crêpe, velvet, tulle… an epic collection with versatile accesories like leather harnesses, feathered shoulder pads, etc.
If you love the results of this gorgeous photo session with the talented photographer Eva Ribot as much as we do, do mot miss its amazing making-of video. We encourage you to visit this blog post in order to discover all the amazing photos of this session featuring the Crow King designs.
Have you heard about The Agonist? It is a Canadian extreme metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 2004. The Agonist has had two frontwomen (founding member Alissa White-Gluz and, since 2014, Vicky Psarakisuse), using both of them growled and clean vocals.
We bring you today the official video of an acoustic version of ‘A Gentle Disease’, a song extracted from the album ‘Eye of Providence’, released earlier this year.
Because beauty may be found in unexpected places.
