This past Tuesday night I got to meet Michelle Aquinto inside her M. Dot Design Studio. I had recently attended her Shop It Event at the W Hotel in Hollywood and was excited to see behind the scenes of her work. Her studio doubles as both her work space and a boutique. I loved the openness with lots of natural light, lots of work space, and especially her inspiration board. It was like a giant scrape book of everything she loves and inspires her posted right where she can see it everyday. The studio perfectly complimented her gorgeous, one of a kind pieces from her spring/summer collection. What is neat about Michelle’s line is that clients can pick the fabric and style they want and have their garment handmade for them.
I wore the two piece dress I made a few months ago and wore to the Simply Stylist Event back in March.
I need a mini bar like this in my house! How chic!
The studio also sells hand poured soy candles. The photos on each of them are from M’s fashion line.
Thank you M. Dot Design Studios for my present! Maybe becoming a designer is in my new future 😉
