Weekly Highlights

It's only Wednesday and it's been a jam-packed week!

This past Saturday, we had an in-studio photoshoot to round out all of our Spring 2015 photography. I JUST got a sneak peak of the first images and let me tell you -- they look amazing! I can't wait to share with you. In the meantime... here are some behind the scenes phone pics from the shoot. 

Our two beautiful models did an amazing job!

Laine was interviewed by Deena Ebbert (PropellerGirl) earlier this week. You can read the full article here!

Deena has been a wearer of KOKOON and friend to Laine for years and she has her own amazing & inspiring company -- you can check her out here! We also interviewed Deena for our client highlight features (you can find this interview on our old blog page here!).  Thank you, Deena!

We are so excited to be a part of the Minnesota Red Dress Collection this year! Laine is designing a red dress for Natalie Nyhus of WCCO. Below you can see the sketch of the dress and Laine and Natalie in front of a few options for red fabric. Today Natalie is coming back to the office to try on the first fitting! 

Full disclosure: it's beautiful!

We will keep you updated on the red dress!

Thanks for reading -- until next time!

Welcome! And a look Behind the Seams

Welcome to the home of our brand new blog! (You can still visit our former posts  here.)

Since we just launched our Spring 2015 collection, I thought a look behind the seams at our spring photo shoot would be a great way to kickoff our new beginning.

I'm really in love with these images, and part of my attachment is because we were able to do the entire shoot in our newly-built home. The whole journey of building a home is something I had wanted to share with you, but we really had issues and I never felt I could post publicly. It's a long story and I will tell you about it someday, a well as go back and walk you through the design of it, but for today I'll keep it about the making of the pretty pictures. ;-)


If you don't already know, this is my favorite dress of all time. The Black Widow Baby. Super limited, cut to order only, and it's my 50th Birthday Dress...so lovely.

My part in photo shoots involves a lot of fussing and tugging and getting my backside shot as our photographer tests her settings.


Our photographer, our amazing photographer...I love her so much. 
You should hire her. Melissa Louise Photography.
We actually met her about 6 years ago when she did Tess' senior photos. We were so impressed Dik-San said we need to hire her for our company. And she still does senior photos!
Our model hired her the next day for her engagement photos :-)
