The One With the Prom Queen


Photo by Deliric from CTC

Yesterday was a really great day for us. Not only did we receive this wonderful picture of Luciana rocking a Chotronette dress, but we also found out about being featured on one of our favorite international fashion blog - but more on that later.

So, the story goes a little bit like this.. Luciana wrote to us about the infamous turquoise dress but unfortunately at the time we did not have the fabrics to make that exact dress, so we offered to reverse the colors and to our surprise she trusted us and agreed. The dress turned out to be maybe even prettier than the original turquoise one and to me it pretty much resembles strawberry yogurt. I simply adore the photo and its bizarre beat as it reminds me of two of my favorite TV shows.. Carnivale and True Blood. Anyway, Luciana was la belle du bal and we're happy she choose us.

On a completely different note, yesterday as I was sipping my coffee and looking through my favorite blogs, I opened up Urban Socialite and could not believe my eyes.. it was a review of our precious Vicious Candy. It feels damn good to be featured on a blog that you read every day. You can read the entire thing here.

We'll get back with new thingies.. this time for real :)

P.S. Read another wonderful article about us, entitled Urban Princess on Style Guide.

Cosmopolitan Contest

Chotronette and Cosmopolitan are holding a contest between the 28th of July and the 6th of August. The prize is one of our prettiest dresses, custom made on the winner's size. All you have to do is upload pictures of you on Cosmo Chic.

Good luck!

Here is another awesome photoshoot by our talented dear Andreea. If you can actually unglue your eyes from the gorgeous girl, you can see our little Vicious dress. It's one of our favourites since it took like a lifetime to make...piles of tulle turned into hundreds of layers... carefully colour selected and handmade attached.
You can find our precious at Interesart and only there since it's one-of-a-kind-and missed back home:).

Ps. We're going out now to celebrate the fact that we've been busy bees making some new sweets(new dresses next week).Patience...

Marshmallow Week





This is a custom made dress, ordered by a lovely lady (whom we cannot wait to see in it). We reversed the original colors and is basically not the easiest dress to make. But as you can see in the picture.. totally worth it.

We can make either color.. just email us if you like them :)turquoise or pink? what are you, missy?

Post Punk Ballerina





Here are a few of our most recent creations.. The orange&pink dress is our favorite and it is entirely made of lace.. well.. except for the corset. Unfortunately the pictures don't really do justice to them, but we're working on that. You can purchase these little gems from Ummagumma store. Or you can simply place a order at umbreluta.de.dantela@gmail.com.

P.S. The mannequinn is not anatomically proportioned so the dresses look a tad big, but they're really medium-sized.

Meet Andra of FHM



Hello everybody.. we know.. a lot of time elapsed since we last wrote on this blog, but we had a lot going on and perhaps lacked the energy. We've decided that starting today we'll mainly write in English..

Anyway, this is Andra from FHM at the 100 Sexiest Women in the World Party rocking a pink-and-orange Chotronette tutu. We simply love the way she mixed and matched everything - the neon purse is perfection and the carousel earrings are very cute.

Although we didn't post anything lately, we did work a lot on creating fairytale items that you'll get to see this weekend (hint: dresses and tutus).
