so, i did these a while ago (like before i went on a big europe extravaganza while) for my schools doll themed fashion show- i did a fashion business diploma program that was well... yeah. this was in the final show, i had to pay to get in here
i found these lovely fabrics and ran with it. each dress is inspired by one of my friends, kind of like what they would wear while playing dress up. I made all the patterns and did all the sewing. It's basically the same black dress just embellished up differently.
all the photo's were taken by jeff chan, the hair and makeup by John Casablanca's Grads.
this dress is inspired by my friend Jen. We've been friends for 15 years. she's slowly transforming from a pop diva into a rocker chick, and this dress was all about being sweet and girly, but still having that kinda "grrr" edge.
the ruffles extend all the way to the back zipper.
This one is inspired by my friend Annie. She loves 19th century literature so I wanted to do something kind of gowny. I added a pleat in there too to make it all schoolgirl nerdy
The model, Kelly, is the first model I ever worked with on my wicked themed shoot. (theres a post about it wayyy back) she's amazing, and she's a redhead like annie
This one is the Cristina. Cris is like the classiest girl, ever. period. she's all like traditional ladylike beauty. she's also the shy one, but good shy, not like creepy shy.
the next one is the Ashley. Ashley and I are no longer friend because she decided to go clubbing with her sleazebag ex boyfriend instead of coming to my fashion show. She has also cancelled on many things prior so it was kind of a last straw thing, not me overreacting.
anyway, it sucks because I LOVE THIS DRESS! the bow is just SO cute! gaahh, it gets me to be all girly like
This one is the Florian. Flo is like... She's one of those people where everything that comes out of their mouth is just the BEST THING EVER! she's so awesome, so like... sparkly! so I wanted to give her lots of sparkle close to her face to accentuate her gorgeous smile which I am harsh jealous of
The thing was originally going to be a neck ruffle, but somehow this happened instead. take note that none of these dresses were really planned, they all happened in the 2 nights before they were due in and are therefore an afterproduct of my odd mind and lots and lots of coffee.
so there ya go. I have to sit at my boring office job tomorrow and will literally be checking back every 30 seconds looking for comments, so please please leave them
