more dyeing

or is it dying? I think with the 'e' is right. anyway, you just can never go wrong with vintage pink undergarments hanging on a clothesline...

19 days and counting to the biggest fashion show I've ever been a part of!
300 feet of runway, over 6,000 people expected, I hope I get it all done!!

another photo shoot

sorry dear readers... all I ever seem to post anymore are pictures from photo shoots or sneak peeks of omaha fashion week progress. such is the fabulous fast paced life of a fashion designer... le sigh.
I do love how the hair turned out, curled, teased, but still lovely.

I tied vintage ribbon bows at her ankles, and everyone thought they were part of her shoes. The word "adorable" was used a lot. And that's just fine with me :) I looooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee adorable. Especially when you say it in a really high pitched voice! But they are adorable little dolls. The eye shadow was my own, and I brought it just in case the make up people didn't have anything bright enough, and I'm glad I did. For the actual show, the eyes will pop even more - aqua, green, purple, and pink eye shadow on all the models, depending on their eye color we will do something contrasting.

but seriously, this model is to die for. Such a sweetheart too, she even gave me a ride home :)

just a few pics from the hottest photo shoot I have ever been a part of. Hot as in temperature, I think I sweat gallons that day.
The model still managed to look gorgeous despite the heat. I think we all came home, showered, and passed out from exhaustion.
I of course was not the photographer, but these are a few I snapped.

more antiquity

new work for the september omaha fashion week-

I'm also working on some mother of pearl button accessories... no pics yet though.
This show is going to be such an unusual combination of victorian Marie Antoinette inspired feminine details and childish, whimsical doll stylings. Hopefully viewers will understand a bit of my vision... maybe?

alternative quilting

this is kind of like 'alternative music' I think...

I've never quilted anything before, but I think that's what this is.
I overlaid this shimmery bubble organza over cotton, and then used silver thread. This is an underbust corset (I call them casual corsets, because I don't really use all the coutil and traditional stuff. Just interfacing and flying by the seat of my pants.
But it's not like my models need a traditional corset, I just like the look :)

I'm liking it!
