Isabel Amyo: Women fashion designer for almost 10 years now.
I had an unusual career. After having been Assistant Director, I wanted to realize my childhood dream by becoming a fashion designer.
Full of motivation and energy I have taken training to hone my skills as an autodidact.
I worked in several fashion house in Paris, and now after having two beautiful boys I decided to run only in creating my own brand.
Let my creations enchant you and I would be most happy.
From scarves to gloves to sweaters, knits are an obvious choice during the winter months. The cold weather may be dreary, but resist the urge to dress in blacks and grays. After all, this fashion season, brighter is better when it comes to everything knit. Bold colors and neon hues quickly transform knit winter staples into bold and modern statement pieces that are sure to add some new life to your wardrobe and perhaps even brighten up your day.
This red bolero knit jacket from Amy and Pia is the perfect way to add a punch of color to your current winter wardrobe. The 1950s-style jacket features three-quarter length sleeves, a wooden button closure and a universally flattering v-neck cut. Hand knit with chunky yarn, this beautiful piece would be perfect in an office setting, stunning over a formal dress, and could also be worn during the early fall and spring months.
Not for the faint of heart, this bright orange loop scarf by Moonsun is a bold fashion statement made for those who aren’t afraid of color. Hand knit, the length and width of the scarf lends itself to its flexibility, allowing it to be worn many different ways, including as a cowl and hood. Providing layers of warmth, this scarf is sure to keep you cozy and warm, and to brighten your spirits during the coldest winter weather.
This matching bright blue hat and cowl set by Alisa Design is the perfect way to add a dash of color to a neutral-colored winter coat. Beautifully made, this set features an open knit design that is both breathable and stylish. Falling above the shoulders in a lacy pattern, the cowl has a vintage feel to it, while still being functional.

It’s been on the handmade radar for years now, organic fabrics. I remember when finding them was like digging for gold and just as expensive. But with more and more market demand for eco friendly, organically made fabrics they are finally easier to source, come in nicer colors and patterns and penetrating the high fashion markets.
New York Fashion Weeks Spring 2010 Trends by Stylelist actually had organic fabrication as one of the top trends. When I first opened my shop on etsy you could find organic tote bags and t-shirts pretty easily, that was in 2007. As etsy sellers have become more fashion forward the designs have become more sophisticated too. Pretty Birdie’s Stephanie Teague really wowed me with this great trench coat.
iLE AiYE: I Produce ladies knitted fashion, felted purses and felt art, as well as ladies jewellery.
I try to create a unique style, which flatters a womans figure to it’s best.
My designs are sold to young girls right up to older ladies, and I’ve found they are the perfect gift for friends, or the ideal garment for your wardrobe.
Everything is hand knitted, and produced by me, I have taught myself to knit, and therefore I make up my own patterns and designs, I am as yet still unable to read and execute a knitting pattern.
I try to use 80% recycled / discontinued yarns, in my products, which often means my work is part of a limited edition or a complete original.
Sweet slips to let peek out from under your skirts.
A Slip Shop: I am Kaity and I love fashion and creating. And, to my very supportive husband’s dismay, I love trying new things and DIYing myself through life. I can’t say that I have any specific hobbies or loves (other than my husband and adorable children and, well, fashion, and oreo blizzards, and…okay, so maybe I’m not completely accurate here.), mainly because my hobbies and interests are always changing and evolving.
