Brown Tweed and Cherry Brown Leather Asymmetrical Matching (Dinosaur Themed) Jackets

Making matching jackets with my nieces has become an annual tradition. This year Gigi requested a dinosaur jacket. This was a tall order especially since bomber jackets with dinosaur appliqués was not an option. Therefore I had to be a bit more creative with the limited materials and time I had available. I decided upon burnt orange/brown tweed wool with sequins, which remained from a previous purchase in NYC. I also chose cherry brown genuine leather, charcoal wool, and dusty rose silk (for the lining). There wasn’t time to create original jacket design for myself, so I used a Burdastyle pattern from a previous project, (see jacket here). The jackets...

Back to Our Roots with 80’s Fashion & Boyfriend Style Cashmere Jackets

Boyfriend Style 80s Blazer Sports Jacket

Back to our Roots Those of us born in the 80’s likely feel a strong attachment to the decade. And just as we who lean on our mothers for support as we become mothers ourselves might begin to resemble them, we who have added Adidas Originals to our wardrobes are also dressing like them too. Especially in our family where my father, who played professional football, had a shoe contract with Adidas. He was always bringing home interesting new things for us to wear. Today with woman multitasking more than ever, a country-style sports jacket traditionally worn by men can be a fantastic fit for today’s millennial woman. With a...

Burgundy Wool and Silk Velvet Jacket for Beranger Gras

One of my larger projects this year was also something rather spontaneous. I designed and constructed a jacket for an up-and-coming musician in Germany, Beranger Gras. I was excited to work with Beranger because his music is a mix of classical and grunge sounds. Not only is his style really cool and unique, but his way of mixing and pairing the old with the new is what I try to do with Anagrassia and Ukrainian folkwear/embroidery.   (Check out his work here: WEBSITE, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK. And if you’re lucky enough to hear him in the streets, it sounds amazing live!)    The story begins back in January. There’s another story of...

100% Long Champagne Wool Coat jacket with cognac honey leather cuffs buttons and extra wide collar, matching mom, handmade, couture, black suede over knee boot

This year, Gigi and I are wearing the new coats I have available for sale in my  A N A G R A S S I A  shop. (Read about last year’s annual “AUNTIE & ME” matching wool cashmere coats here.) The coats are made from 100% champagne wool and cognac leather. My coat (the adult style) cuffs are made from genuine cognac leather and Gigi’s (kid’s) cuffs are made with beige (100%) wool. Both coats are fully lined with polyester lining or tencel. (*Tencel is a sustainable & cellulose fabric which has a great weight & drape. It’s also breathable and warmer than other lining fabrics.) The enclosures are made from genuine leather cognac buttons. With the exception of the...
