Designer of the Day…Lala Berlin

As much as I hate sewing with sheers and silky fabrics, I love how they drape across the body and how ethereal they are. That is why I wanted to feature the work of Berlin based designer, Leyla Piedayesh and her Lala Berlin label. I really wanted to feature this label because the collection of slinky knits and sheers is just amazing to me…

Piedayesh tailors her collections to her love for cashmere, wool, soft cottons, and silks to create her unique sweaters, dresses, and pant suits. When she started Lala Berlin, she hand knitted everything, however now that she’s in high demand, only a select few pieces are personally touched by Piedayesh.

Lala Berlin has shown at many fashion shows and is sold in a flagship store in Berlin. You can also cop some of these great pieces online at the label’s website…I really like her winter 2010 collection – those sparkly, sheer knits have captured my heart!
