Hi all! Late night post today. We had a black-out in my area today, which limited my pc use because my 15 inch screen laptap battery only lasts about an hour without charging. I want to write more, but will have to keep it short so I can get some sleep!
Here are the mood shot of the "Secret Garden" collection I posted yesterday. What do you think? Which picture do you like the best?
I really really love how every single picture came out! It was hard to pick the ones I posted here. When I have time, I will post more pictures on my Flickr page.
Back in February, Amelia contacted me to do a photo shoot with a theme of "Secret Garden". When I saw her website, I was immediately in love with her work. I have a short interview post of Amelia coming up soon so you can get to know her better. After we agreed upon the theme, I started making clothes. As I said before, I did not make any new patterns for this range, just used some old ones and fabrics I can find from my stash. So most of these dresses will be one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind. As much as I love working on bridesmaid dresses, I really enjoy making one-of-a-kind pieces. I take random fabric from my stash and see what it takes me. I also found out that I work better with some concept or theme in mind, instead of random "Spring" or "Fall" collection. Amelia was super fun to work with, and so was Yurie. I think she looks gorgeous in these photos, and even more so in person!
Anyway, it's almost midnight here. Gotta get some sleep to tomorrow. xoxo
