A few days back, I posted up on the LJ comm daily_lolita with this coord as an example on how to wear the new Classic Cameo Collection! You can find the post in the link below with more coord photos and detail shots of the skirt! (Oh, that's me BTW!)
So, I've had a great response to the designs so far. Everyone seems to adore the cameo look and says it's classy and retro! Therefore, yes, I am taking orders! I can make all colorways on a person to person basis. Right now, skirts are $70.00 USD with US Shipping included! If you are international, no worries! Shoot me an e-mail and we will talk about shipping options for you.
I've sold so far on Brown skirt and one Navy skirt to two very lovely Connecticut lolitas. Aly (misslumpy on LiveJournal) has written a shining review of my work, I'm so proud! Not only did I send her the first Lolita Nouveau piece, but, I also created a custom underbust corset for her to wear both over and under her lolita clothing.
You can read her review here at her Blogspot account:
I'm so happy that this little project of mine is getting off the ground, what a lovely way to spend the summer in my opinion! Next for Lolita Nouveau is a fashion photoshoot with some of my good friends to model and show off the new work, shooting is going to happen in the next few weeks with Mary Rebecca, a very talented Photography major recently graduated. <3
So, if you are interested in a skirt, tote, or any other custom products with the Classic Cameo print on it, shoot me an e-mail over at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks all! <3

It's summer 2010 and I've finally done it. School's over and now as a proper fashion student, I've done it. Here's the launch of Lolita Nouveau. My new label celebrating all styles and walks of life within the Japanese Lolita fashion subculture and beyond.
The first collection I'm debuting is The Classic Cameo Collection. A perfect harmony of classic, sweet, steampunk, gothic all in one design. All the original prints featured on this first line are hand made by me, screen printed by me, and sewn by me. I'm a busy girl! This first release of the line will be skirts only. Fully shirred/elastic waistbands. Normally, I make them to fit up to a 30" waist, not your size? Contact me and we can talk over a custom order, no problem!
This classy cameo is half vintage Barbie and half elegant Victorian, how do you want to wear it? Avaliable in four perfect colorways, Brown/Silver, Navy/Silver, Pink/Hot Pink, and Ivory/Gunmetal. All my screen printing inks have metallic sparkly mica to add depth and glitz! Swarovski Crystal accents adorn the picture frame around the cameo and are hotfixed in place.
Tote bags are also avaliable in Brown/Silver and Black/Silver colorways as of now, but I'll be adding on to that. Stay tuned also for matching zip up hoodies and girly cutsew tees featuring this design.
I'll be uploading to my Flickr account high res and detail shots of the finished pieces tomorrow under the name miss-lindsay. Also, look for my post up on EGL on LJ in the next day or so, I'll be opening up a pre-order period for a limited web-exclusive run and I'll also be announcing my new print this week.
E-Mail me at email@example.com if you are interested in a piece with this design, pricing and pre-orders up tomorrow!
