What Suzanne Marques wore to the Emmy’s this year!


, , , , , , , , ,

I know I am way behind on this post. But if you know me you are well aware that I am currently not only the designer and owner of my business but also play a gazillion other roles such as gem sleuth, photo stylist, small freight handler, accountant, web editor, social media expert, publicist and customer service extraordinaire. Do forgive me. I am starting my own “slow internet” revolution here, whereby news from my end will come to you slowly but surely with a good dose of well written sparkle!

The 64th Emmy Awards were last month. The gorgeous Suzanne Marques and I partnered up for her to wear pieces from my new fall 2012 collection. Here are some images she tweeted and texted me right from the Emmy Red Carpet. Suzanne simply rocks!

Isn’t she lovely?

It was a pleasure working with Suzanne, if you are wondering how I connected with her in the first place, do read this post here. The final image of the night was Suzanne pictured with Mr. Bates – a favourite from Downton Abbey. I often find myself sounding like Anna, as I melodiously say “Mr. Baaaaaahytes.”

So that was the Emmy coverage this year. Thanks to Suzanne for rocking my work as she does. If you want to follow this witty lady on twitter you may do so @suzmarques.

Another busy week has ended here at Atelier Shamila. Actually weekends never mean relaxation and spa days around here, it just means still working but with bobs of breaks during the day, or a happy hour, or as is the case tomorrow: a Mother’s Day Trunk Show at Theo Chocolate in downtown Fremont. Our friends at Seattle Metropolitan Magazine featured the event in their blog:Theo Chocolatesee you there!

I am en route to Chicago this evening. This will be my 5th trip in about a year and a bit. Love Chicago! Excited to explore new restaurants and then show my newest collection at my most favourite place in the city this weekend – The gorgeous Art Institute. I am behind in my blogging by a bazillion blog posts. I am so sorry. However; between marketing, attending events, designing, shopping for gems and traveling for shows there are just so many hours in the day. I need a clone of me! The invitation is below. I promise to blog more consistently as I have lots to share with you!

See you in Chicago!
