About

Take your passion and make it happen!

My name is Alise Abele-Dekslinga, and we together with Liene Berzina are the team behind ''Dress.Dance.Sing.Love.Live Girls'' brand. We create handmade accessories from leather and hand colored organic cotton. We make jewelry, scarfs, pouches but mostly handbags. For three and half years our Studio is based in Riga, Latvia. We find inspiration for our work in everything around us - colors of flowers, sparkle, nature and our current and past designs.
My business started when I decided to not fight my creative side and joined Etsy community. My dream always was to make handbags, but I didn't had any sewing experience or any education in that area. In childhood I finished school of arts, so I had trained color sense, creativity and I knew how to turn idea into something real. So I quit my day job and started to learn how to sew, I bought very old and barely working sewing machine and my lessons with myself started. Step by step I learned how sew and tons of other new things - fabric coloring, tassel making, working with leather,photographing. After six months I finally did it - I made my first handbag and someone actually liked it. It was the the big inspirational kick I've needed. After challenging myself everyday I polished my quality standard to perfection, made more and more designs everyday which naturally lead to four collections per year and successful brand which been collecting fans for three years now.
In the middle of this journey I find myself great companion, friend and colleague and taught all my knowledge to her, so now DDSLL Girls is runed by two designers Alise and Liene. Together we dye and bleach fabrics, choose patterns and leathers for new clutch bags, cut tassels and make them in statement jewelry. Basically Liene is the detail and tassel cutter and I'm the seamstress to make idea alive not only on paper or mind but also in real life. Every design we make is something unique and one of a kind, because when you hand dye that white cotton fabric piece, it's like painting on blank white canvas - it's always special.
We're not afraid to risk it, to combine the craziest color combinations and patterns in one very fine piece of accessory.
When I started my brand I never could imagine future like this - our Studio, workers and interns, fans in everywhere all around the world and most important - that huge amount of experience what you get from your work. The greatest felling is to know that somewhere far away some lucky girl is walking around with your design and spreading word about your perfect product, quality and attention to details.
It's hard to know where future will take us. But our goal is to keep grow into bigger company and not to loose high quality standards and uniqueness we have now.

Without love and passion nothing will happen. We are strongly believing that our origin thinking, hard work and high standards will blow up the world in DDSLL Girls way. We, people, can change the world in so so many ways…so, Take your passion and make it happen!
