They are currently working with some of the best photographers, make-up artists and event organisers in the business and the brand’s future philosophy for the next decade is do not follow, lead.

With Oliver


The event consisted on a live photo shoot!!! The designer was Mayka Finkelstein, a visual artist and a print designer with a fashion design degree and a commercial and freelance fashion design experience. Mayka has also worked in the Film and Theatre industry (set and costumes) for almost two decades. Mayka’s work includes creating Concepts and Design for Fashion, Installations and Performing Arts.

Lovely Mayka


It was just perfect, I got there very early to meet the makeup artists, the models, Oliver and Mayka. I had the chance to take some behind scene pictures and videos and even interviewed Mayka, a beautiful, sweet, charm human being!! She was lovely and I am so glad I met her in person.  Her label Love Mayka is pure art and her collection breathtaking.

What to say about Oliver, a professional warm person with great qualities and potential to conquest the world!

My latest buy were this beautiful and stylish brown platform shoes with ribbon included. It was love at first sight…I was looking for brown platform shoes and I literally went to every shoe shop in London unsuccessfully, too uncomfortable, too short, too ugly, too was just impossible to get the right one. Until I got to the last shop and voila…I found exactly what I was looking for, so for that I love you Faith!

I bought recently this lovely leopard print ring from Camden market, from a shop called Bertyandgerty, they also have a permanent shop near the market, they have such a lovely stuff, from second hand shoes to vintage sunglasses to jewelry, etc.

This time the ring is accompanied by a fancy colored nails, I bought this pinky-bright-orange nail polish from a market in the Caribbean, but I´m sure you can get similar in London and Spain…if not just let me know and I´ll go to get you some. Always a pleasure to help friends…  😉
