SO, after a month of gathering photo's of my fashion show I've managed to get not 1, not 2... but 4 whole pictures of my collection... how sucky the whole damn family forgot their cameras! so here it is.. illustrations etc can be found here
then click on gallery.

My theme was sunset, so colours, atmosphere etc etc were taken into inspiration-ness!

I also picked inspiration from mr Cavalli and Versace.

ooh and the backs, incase you were wondering how we all got into them!!

this was my super dooper first ever attempt at a corset (minus the mock-up) and I'm damn pleased with it!!

I'm the one in the pink.. looking a tad manley right there I'm oh so not impressed!! aaaanywho, these dresses were designed by me, the patterns were drafted and drafted and cut and cut and cut again by me to mine and my models exact measurements, the fabric was dyed by me.. ooh how hand dying and painting 26meters of silk chiffon is not fun! oh yea and then hand sewing the damn stuff to the bodice parts! ahhh so many sleepless nights! lol

many comments are welcome, any crit but not too harsh pretty please! Really appreciate feedback!

Wow  Shocked these are incredeble! I remember when you had your sunset collection at DA. This is great you have made these AND had your very own showing at such a youn age! Power to ya!

My fav would be the one with the gold color bust pictured third by itself.

This HAD to be an enormous amount of work, but it sure shows and you should be proud!  Smiley

Those are gorgeous!!! I love the one with the gold bust. It must have taken alot of time and effort to make them, but they look really great.

Great collection. Everything is beautiful and goes together so well. I love the corseted backs. I also love all the hand painted colors. I sometimes find it difficult to produce the same color combination (like a sunset) in clothing, but you did it beautifully. Overall, I really admire everything. Good luck in the future!
