Twas The Night Before The Night Before Christmas…

… and Kate and Alex had a feng shui moment! [When I say that, I mean Kate decided to clean and I decided to watch her clean…]


Check out Kate’s sexy hunter wellies… it’s icy in London!
We dug out some stuff from the cupboards that hadn’t been seen in a little while and I thought some of it might be of interest to our readers and fans of Illamasqua.

First up, we found some of the original packaging designs…


This one set us in to fits of giggles…


Until ‘The One’ was found…


Once the designs were approved, we moved on to the actual packaging samples…


We then found the original influences behind the brand, all written up neatly on to… A3 paper!

Some original product names! You can see the ones that were kept next to their Pantone number and others that were, er, discarded…


Here are some more influences, this time in the form of images…



The Hoff watches over everything we do…


… and that’s me signing out! Have a great Christmas and New Year everyone. We will see you in 2010! x
