Little Hands Design

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening- Coco Chanel

From posts of our weekly designs to our own personal stories, our blog is the hub of everything fashion. Our celebrity style crushes of the week may change from week to week, but our love for all things stitched, sewn, sequinned and studded is un-changing!
