Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,
Today I had the pleasure to visit ashowroom and their featured designers. The showroom was filled with leather goods, printed scarves, suede shoes and shiny jewellery, all these collections were accompanied by their designers which include; Astraea, Eleven Everything, Officina del Poggio, Daryn Moore, Natsuko Toyofuku, Rohka and Carlo Maria Pelagallo. Lets take a closer look at each brand.
A leather goods brand, which dedicated their name to the Greek goddess of golden age.
