|Me wearing it today and it is so sunny and beautiful-yet it is supposed to snow today.|
It was called the Hokonui Fashion Design Awards aand is a nation wide competition and I entered 5 dresses. We were not allowed to take photos at the show, and I am still waiting for the professional shots to arrive from the photographer. In the mean time, until I can show you some photos off the catwalk, here are some images from one of the 5 dresses (I actually wore it today :) None of my outfits place anywhere but it was such a thrill to go to a fashion show and see my designs on display. There were 700 people in the audience on the night I went and the Fashion show has been on t.v. twice. It was really exciting for me to be a part of the show and has given me a lot of confidence with my designing-and thanks to Anne my mannequin for her help in being my figure to design and create the outfits off.
So this is an outfit I entered in the Streetwear category.
As you can see, it is 2 colours, hot pink and purple. It is stretchy, but that lovely thick stretch drill I love so much. I made a hood on it and lined it in the same fabric. The lining was a super stretchy synthetic with concentric circles all over it . I simply cut them and top stitched them on-whuch was a bit lazy as you can see the edges are unfinished and roll slightly. I was not sure how to finish them well but I think it will be fine as they will not unravel or anything.
As I get the pics on the runway I will put them up :)
