Sorry for the lack of posts lately m'dears, but I have a good excuse - I've been at a fashion summer school this week!
Yeahhhh, it was... strange. I want to study fashion at university, but not there... the place was lovely, the people about town were nice, even the four bus rides (just to get there) weren't so bad, but the course itself... well, it was a bit of a let down. I'm proud of the outcome and all, but the experience as a whole left me feeling a little dissatisfied, though I can't quite explain why...
On the first day we were put into small groups and had to identify current trends, and then set up mood boards for our favourite styles. This is the collage I made for 'the romantic look', which was used to inspire our group's dress design.
We weren't allowed to use paper patterns due to the lack of studio time, so we had to invent the dress using circles of fabric instead. It was a pretty manic process; involving a lot of sharp needles, broken sewing machines and fraying fabrics - but despite those minor catastrophes we managed to finish just in time for the photo shoot.
So without further ado, I present our dress... The Iridescent Rose.
Here's a few pics of our model Jordan wearing the dress. A pro photographer did the shoot but we don't get to see those photos until next month, so you'll have to bare with my happy-snappy shots in the mean time :)
In retrospect I think the dress would have looked better if it was a little longer, maybe even floor length, as we were working with a sort of prom theme - but it's not too bad, as long as you don't bend over... or breathe too much ;) tehe.
I'm off to bed now 'cuz I am absolutely exhausted. Hope you're all having a lovely week :)
