About me

Introduction Hello, you have reached the site about me and my blog. I am Georgiana and am creating the blog What was that, you say? Q-U-A-I-N-T-R-E-L-L-E? Quaintrelle is a female dandy, a person that likes nice things and clothes and a specific lifestyle. Well this dandyism is a quite costly thing and that is the reason I started sewing my own clothes and creating my own jewellery, I also like experimenting with hairdos ( is an inexhaustible source for me). I am interested in the history of fashion and also in recreating some historical garments (corsets, panniers – these are so fascinating). Among my favourite periods and styles belong old Rome, French Rococo, English Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, traditional Japanese clothes, 20s, 40s and 50s, mods. Designers I admire are eg. Charles Worth, Christian Dior, Mary Quant, Karl Lagerfeld, Elie Saab and lots of others.
