It’s my blog’s birthday month so it’s all about being chic and festive.  My little “makeupartistas” is turning three and we are up for some cool news!

As I am celebrating  this period,  I had to bring my style up a notch  so be prepared for some festive looks that are about to come, like the one today.

For this look, I had the privilege to wear the skirt of one of the most adorable and talented Irish designers: Erika H. Taite . By the moment you meet up with Erika it’s like you meet with an old friend that you haven’t seen for some time. Her friendly and approachable character as well as her beautiful chic designs that bring a fresh European influence into the Irish Fashion Industry, will make you love her.

Erika is half German and was born in Ireland and her artist flair runs in the family, with her her great grandfather being a well renounced crafts man and a special effects painter, her mother an artist and her aunt an interior designer. Her design talent  comes with no surprise when you consider it.  Her precision to detail and the artist influence through her family is very apparent when you see her collection in Marion Cuddy’s Irish Designer Emporium .

Erika trained in the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and launched her collection KLila during Dublin Fashion Festival in Sept 2014 .The birth of KLila echo’s the importance of family ties , love and romanticism as it was named after her two beautiful children Kyle and Lila .

You will usually find her and her designs in the Marion Cuddy’s Irish Designer Emporium, on the top floor of the Powerscourt Centre, Dublin. So when you are in town make sure to pop in and take a look. Erika will be there to welcome you.

Το μικρό μου blog μεγαλώνει κατά ένα χρόνο! Το “makeupartistas” γίνεται 3 αυτό το μήνα και η διάθεση είναι γιορτινή. Αυτή την εορταστική διάθεση δε θα μπορούσα παρά να τη μεταφέρω και στο σημέρινο look, που είχα την ευκαιρία να φορέσω τη φούστα μιας από τις πιο γλυκές και ταλαντούχες Ιρλανδές σχεδιάστριες, της Erika H. Taite. Τα όμορφα και σικάτα ρούχα της δίνουν έναν φρέσκο Ευρωπαϊκό αέρα στην Ιρλανδική μόδα.

Η Έρικα είναι μια εκπληκτική σχεδιάστρια που θα σε κάνει να νιώσει αμέσως οικεία μαζί της και θα σε βοηθήσει να βρεις το κομμάτι που ταιριάζει στη προσωπικότητά σου. Μισή Γερμανίδα και γενημένη στο Δουβλίνο από οικογενεια με ιστορία στη τέχνη. Πέρνει το ταλέντο της από το προ -παππού που ήταν ζωγραφος,  και τη καλιτέχνη μητέρα αλλά και την υπόλοιπη οικογένεια που έιχε παντα καλιτεχνικές ανησηχίες.

Σπούδασε στο National College of Art & Design στο Δουβλίνο και λάνσαρε τη συλογή της KLila στη διάρκεια του Dublin Fashion Festival το Σεπτέμβριο του 2014 . Στη γέννηση  της συλογής KLila αντιηχεί ο ρομαντισμός και η αγάπη προς την οικογένια, μιας και το η συλογή ονομάαστικε από τα δύο κορίτσια της Erika, Kyle & Lila .

Θα βρείτε τα σχέδια της στο Marion Cuddy’s Irish Designer Emporium  στο τρίτο όροφο του Powerscourt Centre στο κέντρο του Δουβλίνου δίπλα στη κεντρική Grafton Street. Αν περάσετε από το κέντρο της πόλης μη ξεχάσετε να ρίξετε μια ματιά.
