LUV NORTH has made it through its first year, and we are so proud of all the work that we have put in and so blessed to have got to know so many talented people. Although it has only been twelve months since we launched, we thought it would be fun to recap the highlights of 2016.
Last January we launched the brand at the Wedding Fair, followed by our first website. We shot the first lookbook pictures already in December 2015, and were so excited to show you guys the results. Our first jewelry line, LUV Story, was designed by our very own Laura and all the campaign pictures were also shot by her. We were very pleased to have Ines (blog) and Eino as our first faces.
Only few weeks after our launch, Finnish women’s magazine Anna featured us in their section “Ihanuudet”. We wrote a blog post about it too, find it HERE. During summer we participated the Teurastamon Torstaimarketti and focused on a new project that we will be announcing later on this year. We shot our second set of campaign pictures together with Nikita Tikka, Niklas Nabb and Laura. Those pictures will be part of our new, fresher layout.
One of our 2016 highlights was to get to work with Finnish actress Alina Tomnikov (site), to whom we designed a choker together with stylist Maryam Razavi to be worn in one of her premieres last fall. We spotted Alina wearing our designs on different magazines, you can find the stories HERE. After the second Wedding Fair of the year in October we took a deep breath just to write down our goals for 2017. Thank you all for the support and feedback we’ve received, this year we will be working even harder. Bring it on, 2017.
