Liberty Love

I can't resist Liberty fabrics and I was thrilled to find out that Haifa Boutique has received a new selection of them. I went to Haifa's branch in Shuwaikh and marveled at the beauty of the fabrics. There is only oooone tiiiiny problem. I don't know what to do with the fabrics and I don't have the talent or the skill to sketch and design. Up until yesterday, I have shown great restraint in not falling into the trap of designing my own dress/kaftan/whatever, because I KNOW I won't be wearing that piece. Right now while I'm writing this post and stare at the cuteness of the fabric featured in the first photo, I think I'll be breaking  my so-called-rule very soon.

Speaking of Haifa boutique, they have also been recently featured in Harper's Bazaar Arabia's April edition again (click on the image above to view the circled item).  The feature included a photo from their latest photoshoot for their lookbook.  Liberty of London has also requested a copy of their lookbook! Isn't that cool?!

It is located in Shuwaikh Industrial Area, first intersection after home center and Altilal mall, maybe fourth shop to the right.

I have the exact same problem. I marvel at the beauty of their fabrics yet i don't know what to do with them if i bought them.

Maybe a shawl? Or customize an old boring Tshirt?

Thank you Confashion!

As usual, your post on us was just so sweet. Liberty fabrics are so easy to obsess over, no? Can you imagine having to choose which ones to stock when we go on buying trips? It's like choosing a favorite child!

Much love xx

I think some of these fabrics would look really cool on tent furniture or even on the walls. Not tent, out to hunt migrant birds using illegal sonic devices tent but the built tents that people have adapted as makeshift diwaniyas.

I'm thinking a pair of capri pants and button down shirt with a self tie knot and a mis-matched sleeves? hahah It's easy to come up with ideas.. but who's good enough to put them in action :P
