Strawberry Koi Dress Project
Many of you might know the lovely blog, Strawberry Koi run by Aya Smith but if you don't, do yourself a favor and give it a look-see. I am a huge fan of her blog. I love her vintage inspired outfit posts and how-tos, such as this bow tutorial. She also runs an etsy vintage shop.
The reason I mention her now is because over the past couple of months, she and I have been collaborating on a creation of "Strawberry Koi Dress". I contacted her a while back about the idea of her designing a piece that I would then bring to life. She agreed and we have been working on this ever since. I am happy to announce that the project has just been completed and I will be unveiling the dress soon. She will be modeling and posting the project on her blog soon. I can't wait to see hear wearing the dress!
I am so excited for the final release of this piece. It's outside my normal design range because Aya has a different creative eye than me but that is exactly what made this so much fun.
For today, here are some pictures from the early creation process:)
