A couple of months ago when I was just starting the blog (though it feels like I am just a rookie blogger) I decided that one of the things I would like to frequently feature on my blog was collaboration with other bloggers based in London. My first plan of attack was approaching some bloggers from the contact list on the London Bloggers facebook group and though the response was in general quite positive, unfortunately none of this collaborations worked out in the same month of August because all the girls I approached were away at that time.

One of the girls I approached at the time was Simoni, Cypriot blogger currently based in London, author of Fashionable Rose. We have been in touch on and off for the last few months and at the very end of 2015 finally managed to find some time for a photo shoot together.

Simoni studied Textile Design at Middlesex University in London and after graduation she came back to Cyprus and started her own brand of beautiful hand-woven textile designs. Her brand is called Simoni Textile Designs and as you may guess, the bag presented on the photos is of her own design and production.

We met in Kensington Olympia and had a lovely time talking about or dreams and work on our brands. Simoni told me about her dedication to building her own brand for over five years and I am wishing her all the best with further work on spreading her love for weaving, creating unique designs for each customer!
