Fashion Show

April 13th is the art cabaret at our school, since I am currently enrolled in AP Studio Art I am to be one of the featured artist!  Since all of my artwork is 3d design, and is clothes, my professor has allowed me to put on a little fashion show.  At this time I have 17 complete outfits compiled- I am working on more.  I am in the process of pulling models, I am using girls from school, and doing fittings.  Hopefully my friend Alexis who did a fabulous job in the previous fashion show, can work her magic again.  I am looking forward to it greatly and can't wait to see all my pieces walk the runway, photos will be posted shortly after, until then I will be working on my prom dress and Alexis's graduation dress. Until then-

The Glamour of Prom

Prom is coming, April 1st, so ladies grab a man and boys, try to act like men. When I looked upon Teen Vogue's latest issue behold the prom craze.  Much to my satisfaction there was a whole section dedicated to how dressing in a more vintage style was extremely "in" this prom season.  I was pleased because a) I love everything vintage- especially the 20's which is where the issue was aimed, and b) I predicted this trend.  Yes, as a hopefully future fashion buyer it is savvy to be able to predict trends, and I predicted this one.  For my senior prom I am making my own dress (of course) and it is very vintage inspired, which led to vintage style heels, and the whole vintage look.  I can't wait, should look ravishing!  Bellow is the front of my soon to be prom dress.

It is made out of a beige/ gold-ish colored satin, I had hoped for a copper color, but had no luck in finding it.  The pattern is my own- like always.  The neckline is draped and on the inside there is a lining of the same satin for a very finished look.

     For my birthday, my fantastic grandparents sent me not one, but three massive coffee table books on various fashion designers.  I honestly don't think I could I have ever thank them enough- though I tried.  The books are about Chanel, Diore, and Alexander McQueen.  Chanel and Diore are my two personal favorites, and the Alexander McQueen book took my breath away, now that is wearable art!  These books have brought me immense amounts of insight into the world of couture.  Something my art professor has been pushing me to dabble in.  This ladies and gentlemen is the beginning of the best I could come up with.  Yet another princess dress!  Apparently it's going to take me awhile to develop my wearable art.

Bow tie anyone?

I have noticed that with high school girls bows are an incredibly trending fashion statement.  Whether featured on shirts, as a print, jewelry, on handbags or wherever!  Personally I prefer bows that are real, not diamond encrusted.  I mean good fabric or ribbon bows.  So inspired by recent trends, I made myself a white crepe blouse, with a very large bow at the neck.  However the bow is not my favorite part, the best part is the detail of the covered buttons along the front.  This blouse has become one of my favorite things to wear these days!

Tionne Dress

This dress was originally going to be featured in the Object Runway fashion show, unfourtunately I didn't finish it on time, but now it is complete.  I was inspired by my artistic friend Tionne, my hope is that she will model it in my end of the year fashion show.  The detailing is petal shaped tulle, with black beading, all of it belted with matching tan fabric.

A Complete Queen of Hearts

I finally finished my valentine dress!  It appears see through on the dress form however I wore a slip underneath!  I love this dress, it is so fun to wear!
