Another one comes knockin’
I am talking about my third capsule collection. It hasn’t happened before, but this time I am doing everything within a month because I keep feeling inspired, and the energy is just, there. I have done some planning with my new photographer and the shoot is happening this saturday, launch will be on 1st September. This time, I promise everything is going to be dynamic.
I am a little tired of the back-to-back sewing sessions, but I won’t be able to have a vacation soon (sigh). The prom season is coming, in November, right here in Singapore and I already have a client. She is not my first prom client though, I designed and made my own prom dress last year, as well as my classmate’s. She was a size 10, and I jumped at the idea of making her a dress because as a designer, I really want my clothes to cater to different kinds of women, all colours and sizes.
OK, let me move on to this mini showcase of my ‘wardrobe’ a.k.a clothes that I’ve made for myself to wear. I don’t really have a distinctive sense of style. I am a fashion blogger not style blogger anyway, but not being able to find clothes that I like when I go shopping is one of the very main reason why I’ve wanted to become a designer. For myself, I prefer comfy pieces that says standout without being too loud. It all lies in putting some extra thoughts into a simple dress or top, like colours, fabric and pattern.
This dress is definitely not original (but I wouldn’t call it a rip-off either). The fabric reminds me of Prada SS08’s checkered leggings, then I decided to give it a Miu Miu SS08 twist with the babydoll pleats.
I silkscreened the cheeky ‘Galliano Is Back’ shirt and hand painted the Rock.The.Trend. tee. This blog is not branded, but it is my take on crappy logo tees by some other fashion houses (think Chloé).
Well if you are interested in any of those looks, I can do a remake for you, simply drop me an email (check the CONTACTS page) or comment will do.
P.S. the images from May till July have been temporarily suspended. Will be reactivated on 28th August.
