LILIS BOUTIQUE ZOTTEGEM

Is not just a coffee house but a place where you can buy your vintage and new outfit , it is  a boutique for the fusion of old and new.

Mrs Lilian started  Lilis boutique  in 2016. She is originally from Oostende West Vlaanderen Belgium.

She found the love of her life in Zottegem and came to live here, so we can say that Zottegem is the city of Love, the Verona of Belgium.

We admire her courage as a mother of 5 children she still has the strength to combine taking care of the kids and running her business this is because she is very energetic and ambitious.

She is a woman who love people and also want to serve her community that is why she started this concept of business where there is a coffee shop inside the boutique.

This concept is new in Zottgem it originated from the Netherlands, but it is highly welcome, the reason for this is that when men go shopping with their wive or girlfriend most of the time they find it boring but with a coffee house inside the boutique she used one stone to kill two birds.

Men can drink coffee or sip wine while their lady shops.

The vintage collection help a lot of the women to get their dream outfit.

You know that feeling of having your dream item. This bring a smile to your face.
Let’s not pretend, not everybody can afford a luxury brand but the vintage gives a chance to own one.

Hello fashionista are you feeling me on this, I know u do of course.

It is also a shop for look chic for less, that is shopping without breaking the budget.

Looking fabulous on a dime is that your thing then you are at the right address Heldenlaan 16 Zottegem.

I know some of you dream of vintage Louis Vuitton handbag this is a place you can get it.

Are u a lover of delvaux handbag if yes you are welcome.

Mrs Lilian goal is to put a smile on your face and to see her client happy this has help her grow her business because her client are satisfied, so they keep coming back.

Yes you heard me right.

What more can we say

THE EASTER BUNNY

THE EASTER BUNNY

Easter is a Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The origin of the Easter bunny is a mystery.

Some say it originated from a pagan tradition of the festival of Eostre, the goddess of fertility where the animal symbol is known to be a bunny.

The rabbit knows to have high energetic breeding capacity, which symbolizes fertility.

The eggs represent new life.

Decorating the eggs for Easter started in 13th century, the German immigrant brought it to America and it later spread to other countries.

Children are very excited about the Easter eggs that they often leaves carrot for the bunny who brings the eggs incase she get hungry.

Happy Easter

LE BERGER HOTEL BRUSSEL

Le berger is a very lovely hotel in the center of Brussel with a historical art deco. It is 300m from the metro station so it is very easy accessible with public transport.

There is an Italian restuarant and bar.

For this shoot we wanted to go back in time to see how the people from this era lived and the economic situation.

THE 1930 ECONOMY CRASH FANTASY BOOM

The depression of the 30s did not affect everyone the same way. Many rich people felt no impact at all, and were blind for the suffering of others.

The 30s were the beginning of the ready to wear fashion age. During the 1930s great depression companies started researching and implementing cheaper means of clothing manufacturing.

Clothing style were less extravagant, but the shapes of these dresses were designed to show off a woman most feminine features- most of the dresses were either slightly gathered or pleated.

The ideal 30s woman was tall and slender with a very small waist and narrow hips. Since most women were not blessed with slim hips and a small waist, shoulders were exaggerated with puff sleeves.

Ready to wear became popular because clothing could be mass produced .During this era the zipper became a standard in the finishing of garments because they cost less than buttons.

A woman would not wear her house dress out of the house, to shop, run errands. she would need a smart afternoon or day dress.

Characteristic of fashion in the 30s

  • shoulder pads were frequently used to broaden and square the shoulder of dresses
  • For women in business a well tailored suit was a must
  • Silky dresses became more popular
  • Empire waisted lines which were tied in the back were popular
  • Women usually wore gloves outside the house. The gloves would be worn to match their shoes and handbags
  • Makeup such as rouge and lipstick was frequently used to brighten pale faces
  • Women tended to keep their hair fairly short
  • Artificial eyelashes were popular
  • Wool, silk and cotton were the most popular fabrics for women’s’ fashion

Being on a tight budget was no excuse for sloppy fashion. It was considered a woman’s duty to shop smart.

Women who could feed and dress her family on a dime were praised. They were considered a good steward of the husbands money.

EVENT VENUE SALONSMANTOVANI

Salons Mantovani is a luxury event company which has an elegant traditional interior design.
This reflects the classic European decor, whereby pairing furniture or accessories to create a sense of symmetry around a vocal point or a favourite art work. This helps to emphasize luxury and comfort.
This style fit very well with the type of woman which we tend to inspire.

Salons Mantovani, as you know, is located in Oudenaarde (Oost-Vlaanderen) in “Belgium”
It was established by Mr. André Verhenne and Mr. Luc Verhenne.
The name Mantovani was an inspiration from the Anglo-Italian conductor, composer, Annunzio Paolo Mantovani who died in March 1980. As Mr. André Verhenne and Mr. Luc Verhenne were a huge fan of his work, they decided to name their business after him, thus the birth of Salons Mantovani in September 1980.
During this period in Oudenaarde, there was no multifunctional halls for the dance school. André and Luc decided to contribute to the community by establishing this type of event venue. This made the Mayor of Oudenaarde very proud and happy to have such citizen in his community.
Salons Mantovani render services from meeting halls, wedding, and all type of events you can think of. They have a wonderful team of workers who are dedicated to their job. It is a place where the satisfaction of their client meets their ultimate goal. It is different from all other event venue because they cater for their clients’ needs from A-Z. It is a one stop shopping place for your events.
There are different halls all named after Queens e.g. Hall Paola, Hall Alexandra, Hall Diana and the Foyer which is a general meeting place for lunch. Hall Diana  got our attention because it is named after Luc Verhenne’s mother Diana. This hall is about 625m² and can accommodate 700 people.
Luc Verhenne’s mother Diana was a Queen in the sense that she was always ready to help whenever necessary. She was a woman whose charm and charisma would not be underestimated. She contributed enormously to the success of the business. That is why her legacy will linger on.

“The elegant traditional style of Salons Mantovani is going to be kept.” says  Luc Verhenne and we agree because the atmosphere is very comfortable and give a good luxurious feel.

We also wish that Salons Mantovani does more house catering, since the halls are always booked and not all of us has the privilege to be there with the house catering we can have a taste of their delicious food.

With this we say Salons Mantovani is the best place for all your events.
