My first Collar

My first attempt to make a collar...pretty neat I must say.. However forgot to do the straight stitches on the outside...Surely it looks nicer plain?? Less is more?? Haha..

Dior..Issey Miyake..Yohji yamamoto..Junya Watanabe..made me go 'KAWAII' for the first time..

 Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion   is a MUST see exhibition. The simplicity of folding and draping a cloth in various ways can create masterpieces as displayed in this exhibition. GO SEE IT! only £8 at the Barbican centre, london. 

series of pleats. all done by paper.


Another inspiring exhibition worth seeing is the Dior Illustrated, RenĂ© Gruau & The Line of Beauty. My favourite illustration was for the perfume Dior-Dior, 1976 which was launched in Marrakesh. I love how the 'billowing white cotton dress enveloping the woman expresses the opulence of this perfume'.  Looks like i need to start developing my illustration skills...
