hey guys! I haven't been around these parts for a while, but for very good reason! I've been sewing and sewing and sewing until my fingers bleed and then sewing some more! See, this past November my good friend Anne and I got a research grant through our uni and we've spent the past six months making it happen!

Essentially this is what happened: Anne is a textiles designer and I'm... well, I'm technically a sculpture major, but let's get over that and say I'm a fashion designer... anyways, We started by co-designing the entire line together and then we split off to do our own talents. We only used old and recycled fabrics like sheets and drapes, which we got from the thrift store. Anne took the fabric and dyed them and embroidered it and then I'd make it into clothing! So the entire line was eco-friendly, and was also inspired by the lines of antique furniture.

On top of all that design nonsense Anne and I are super good at event planning, so we held the show at a SUPER swanky French restaurant where the models walked on the bar as a runway! It was a spectacular show and it went SO SO SO well and there were tons of people there!! I'm excited about how well it went, and I'm also super glad that it's all done! I never really thought about how much time and energy it would take to make it all happen, but it was totally worth it!

















I won't take up all of your bandwidth with pictures, so if you're interested you can look at the rest of the pictures, including ones from the actual show, on my blog

these are breathtaking! I love love love them all, but my favourite details are the sleeves in the 2nd dress, the collar in the 3rd and the "pinned" fabrics in the 2nd & 3rd last ones.

side note: yeah tumblr! Tongue

These are so awesome! I think I like the blue jacket and the long dress the best. But I would totally take one of each.
