November navy..

I love navy & mustard. When I found this printed fabric I instantly had this collection sorted. November heads into high summer, so i wanted a really golden feel November. My very beautiful friend Julia was my model, and i absolutely love this shoot.

Oh and for the beauty note... we had hot pink lipstick on her top lip and fluro orange on her bottom lip... looked stunning!!

Drape was the key feature of this collection.
The styles worked really well and the response to October was overwhelming!
I am so proud of the final images. Thoughts....?

Oh i do love Spring...!!

For the September collection I decided to do a little re-launch.
Since the last month was oh so black, I wanted to bring ALABAKOV back to its root and inject some colour. This collection coincided with Spring Racing carnival and I enlisted my fabulous friend Dagmara for the use of her fascinators from her brand Lulki.
I adore this collection... do you...??

And this is my FAVOURITE sirkt! Its called the Cupcake Skirt and I wear it as much as i can!

much love

A black August

Although I am very much a colour person.... Melbournites are very much 'black is the new black' people. So a little tribute for them!

The August Collection....
Much love

Back to the start

For those of you unaware of alabakov, the label started about 7 months ago.
A new concept, of which capsule collections are released monthly online, was a little thought that I had. I eventually managed to put it all together onto

All deets are online, including how to order and what my philosophy is! Check it out if you have a sec!
So for the next few posts, I thought i would visually bring you up to speed by showcasing the collections i have released so far!

So from the start... here is the June Collection...
