You know they say that it rains in Ireland quite lot. Since I have been here for the last few months, yes it has rained some but not as much as I thought it would. So far the weather has been like a Finnish autumn without the grayness as the grass seem to be green here all year around. Rain can make things look miserable, but it can also make things beautiful. Raindrops in the flowers, raindrops on the spider web….
She opens her eyes like every other morning. With a misty gaze she walks over to the window and moves the curtains aside with a gentle touch. Rays of sunlight dance through a timid rain and greet her face with a sweet tickle. Everything is serene and beautiful. It's so close but yet so far away.. This is - Liliya's rain.
Liliya’s rain is a collection that catches this beauty. The collection is made by Anne-Mari Pahkala
, a professional Designer Dressmaker. She has worked in historical atelier in Venice, Italy and with industry professionals in Finland and they have affected in creation of her own signature style of elegance, quality and structural craftsmanship with the natural and fresh elements of the North.
The glass jewellery is hand made by Joonas Laakso
I just love her dresses and next time when I go to Finland, I know for sure which shop I will be visiting… Although on the other hand, you can also order the clothing also via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
, so I maybe go for that option instead :)

Few posts back I was writing about the independence party that the Finnish president hosts every year and usually you can also see some dresses from Anne-Mari Pahkala in there too. I really like the cut of this yellow dress
she made. Sorry no picture available due to copyrights of the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.
Seems to be it is not raining at the moment, so heading out to the nice afternoon walk. Taking an umbrella with me, just in case… ;)
Cheers for now,
