I got inspiration from the tale of the Six Swans by Brothers Grimm and upon further research I arrived with Swan Lake. The story is beautiful. Then I have to described my muse and played the idea of duality. Is she the white swan? Is she the black swan? Is she a beauty of duality, the two sides of the same coin? I named my inspiration board “Embrace by Darkness – There She Illuminates” and as for the final board, the title is “Innocence Inked by Austerity”

I’m just amazed with his illustration. He’s been working as a freelance and in placement at Alxender McQueen. I’m so jealous.

I’m totally motivated now.

Because I’m an emotional masochist, I can’t help but browse around Luis Via Roma website which I can’t afford a single thing.

And there I’ve been drooling at Givenchy’s printed open toe boots and leggings.

Have you seen the March issue of Vogue where they feature a must-buy item? Have you heard of Erdem? Shame on you if you didn’t! Flower prints are just everywhere and nothing like Erdem’s. It’s combination of prints, embroidery and 3d little flowers.

If you’re wondering why do I still have the March issue of Vogue instead of April, I never got them. I complained and they haven’t replied yet. I’m a month issue late, how dare they delaying my subscription. Ugh!

UPDATE: Erdem wins BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund beating out fellow nominees Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll, Marios Schwab and Nicholas Kirkwood. Yes he did!!

Somehow that summarise the show. But you have to see the video why it’s really cool. So the concept is a synthesis of two parallel reality where nature and fashion meets. Using a virtual landscape made that possible. As if the models are interacting with nature.

Because there are so many designers showing their collection during fashion week, it’s difficult to follow through them all and beside Pixie Geldof is there so I skipped it. She had taken nice editorial shots but I’m still not convince.

I promised myself to keep updating this blog. I’m paying for the hosting, I might as well use it. ^__^ So some of my post are so ancient like a year ago, ignore that!

I’ve been working on my designs and finished some dresses. Since I don’t know much about sewing, it’s all trial and error thing. I suck at pattern anyway.

Here’s a photo of what I did. Still doing some more design to get to universities. I don’t know what they’re looking for but I need to get in at least one of them. I’m excited for a photo shoot. I need a tall skinny model to fit in those dresses. ^_____________^

It’s not even summer, I can’t wait for these headdresses to be on Vogue, Elle or ID fashion spread. Though I only like few of Alexandre Herchcovitch’s spring collection, his autumn designs are really amazing, especially the turbans with chain, very gypsy-like and i’m loving it!!!
