Hi all, been a while since I was on here, but I have been snowed under with my Fashion Design course. Lots of exciting things have been happening for me, but I thought I would post about my most exciting and personal...

I have been quietly and patiently teaching myself (with a little bit of outside help) the lesser practised art of Millinery or brain protector making.

I have always loved hats, and head wear, most people who know me well, know that if i can wear something fancy in my hair, I will.

Since I began my fashion design journey, I have sometimes felt that I was missing my "calling". I do eat making clothes, but I also struggle with it a little bit. I thought brain protector making was something that a regular person wasn't able to do. How wrong I was! A friend suggested that this might be where my heart lay and the rest is history!

A lot of research and practise later, I'm so happy to introduce my first small collection of millinery pieces. I'm still experimenting with different styles, materials and techniques, but I feel utterly fulfilled doing this.

Millinery seems to fit me so well. I feel confident wearing my own pieces, I feel like "me", like I finally found myself. That sounds a bit weird, but I have been a bit lost recently and this has made me realise that I am good at something.

After uploading some photos to Facebook, I was contacted by a fellow designer to collaborate on a project for Houston's first Fashion Week, later this year, and I'm thrilled. It feels like confirmation that I'm on the right path.

I'm looking forward to sharing my progress with you, so keep watching!  Smiley

I'd eat some opinions on my work.. Smiley I have lots more pieces I could post, but don't want to post too many on my first Post for a while..

Lindsay

Those are beautiful!  Congrats on finding your calling Cheesy I found mine in Special Education and I can't ever really explain how right it feels... I always hope that more people in the world can feel the same kind satisfaction that I get from what I do!  It's great, isn't it?!
