addicted to Pink!

My name is Meles and I am addicted to Pink!
Elegant, romantic…blush pink is this perfect delicate tone that always makes you dream...
Dreams of poetry, of a better world with peace, justice and equality in the society. We all need romance in our life…Eduardo Soler, my cousin, wherever you are today, this one is for you and your wife Monica.

Queen for one day!

Lot of people asks me where I get inspiration from? I always smile and answer "from everywhere!” This week is Carnival in Spain. This means we all get to dress with costumes all week long...
This morning when I dropped my boys to school, both dressed like Super Heroes, I could not resist to look through their window class...All their classmates where dressed either like SUPER HEROES or PRINCESSES!
Well today this is what inspired me to create this Digital Print, for young teenagers; a little bit Mango Style!
I hope you like it!

This designs will be part of Penn Asia digital collection! follow it at

As a Lace Designer based in Barcelona I love it when celebrities decide to wear Lace on their awards festivals. This beautiful dresses are made with the most delicate and precious lace that we can find in the market: called Leavers Lace.
If you want to know how Leavers Lace is designed and manufactured you can contact
Meles Must directly.
Enjoy this images from the Grammy Awards, Orange British Academy Awards and Annual Producer Guild Awards.
Shapewear a Year Later…was the title of the conference that took place on Sunday the 23rd, at this Edition of Interfiliere January 2012

The conference room was packed, which showed the interest on this subject, by the assistants to the show.
For over 40minutes, Intima Magazine, talk about the facts and conclusions, based on their interviews to 320 shops selling Shapewear garments. I would like to summarize some of the key conclusions:
  • Shapewear is, and continues to be a growing market.
  • All the major brands have now a Shapewear range, and they are satisfied with the growth of sales.
  • The Shapewear consumer, average, ranges from a size 38 to 42. In other words is not the “slightly overweight” prototype we have in mind. However many brands are offering now larger sizes such as a European 54, 56…Same factor is applied to the bra sizes and Even Huit, is now offering a 95D bra size.
  • Wacoal and Triumph, are still the leaders in the Shapewear Market. With Beauty Secret, Wacoal has sold over 30million garments, all over the world.
  • Major designers agree, that Shapewear is mainly a function garment, but fashion and beauty is now playing a major role.(you can see it in the Photo Collage I have attached). The “Lace Look” is very strong. 
Companies are making large efforts to create different products highly innovative and where technology plays a major role. The are willing to experience with new yarns and search for a mix of invisible and feminine/support and modernity.

Ex. The line Lovely Sensation from Triumph France, made with Sensitive by Eurojersey. The line Rosy Sensual made with collaboration with Noyon offering a Cotton Lace; and Envy by Wacoal France, with a double sided tulle, combining cotton and polyamide.

  • However, still the major selling colors are nude and White in the summer and Black in the winter time.
  • The best selling points are still those where the consumer can be assisted and directed towards their needs, by professional staff.
The trendiest brands in my opion they are: Made by Niki and Andrés Sarda lace collection with a retro look.
Some of the collections now in the Market are:
  • Perle: by Prima Donna
  • Retro Lite, Bride, Everyday Slimmers, by Bodywrap
