Today I’d like to introduce to you the new creation from designer Stephanie Burkhalter. I know her for years now and I’m really proud to count her to my friends. And here I really have to admit that I’m totally crazy for her awesome heels. Her new collection, so called “Californication”, is inspired by Hollywood’s glamour, LA’s nightlife, and So Cal’s sunshine and coast lines. She has been hard at work creating these new, trend-setting designs, but that’s not where the story begins. Switzerland born and Italian fed, Stephanie recently left Europe to pursue new love and inspiration, traveling across America and landing right at the coast of Malibu, California. She set up her studio and began exploring her new home, discovering the colorful heart of California’s coast which gave birth to a new vision in her heart – flowers. Passionately, and with all of the vibrant fabric she could get her hands on, Stephanie began to create.

Because of all the work she had to do, an assistant needed to be hired. That’s where Choco came into the story, the new and fabulous mascot of Burkhalter Couture. A Siamese/Himalayan beauty, Choco was found at a local animal shelter, afraid and mistreated by her previous owner. When Stephanie found her, they immediately bonded and the adoption happened within the hour. Now, Choco is well at home in the Burkhalter studio, not only assisting with the new collection, but also inspiring a new line of pet couture, soon to be released as “Choco Couture”.

    Choco is so sweet, the name as well! I didn’t know Stephanie Burkhalter and it’s nice that you are friends, cause someone who creates so beautiful pieces must be great! I love her design now, count me as a new fan! I myself am always embroidering my clothes with flowers that I do myself, not as professionally and perfect as hers, and I immediately loved her creations!
