I've had a pretty bad injury from a car wreck, so I can't do much of anything but look, and I have some lovely photos to share. These delicate confections are from Basia Zarzycka, who has the most amazing shop on Sloane Square in London. It's like a cross between an Aladdin's cave and Marie Antoinette's boudoir. She has a bespoke business, and these are some of her over the top creations. She started out with a stall in a burough market in London, so she gives me hope that someone who is craft minded can start small and prosper. Having said that, she does have both a Bachelors and Masters in Embroidery, Design, and Textiles so the woman has got both skills and knowledge. What separates Basia from many other bespoke designers is her baroque layering of the best of laces, beads, and beautiful fabrics. These are pieces that are truly worthy of a Princess. BTW, all images are from her web page. Go ahead and drool over her dresses, lingerie, and accessories.
