PROJECT RED

31 Dec

I have been working on ‘Project red’ for a long time (10 months), glad to finally be done with it and with good results.

The design is inspired by the 1950s fashion.  I love this fashion-era because dresses flattered the female figure. The style suites almost all types  of female shapes and figures.

The shape of the dress makes any one look like they have a really tiny waist.

Lady in Red. A good dress for a good friend.

Inspired on vacation!

12 Dec

I have been on a short vacation for a while which explains my absence from word press, but am back now!

While I was away though, I manged to hunt down (with loads of help from my brother and his GPS) one of my biggest inspiration so far and made it to their shop in London, Yey me :)) !!

Location: Junky styling, 12 Dray Walk, The Old Truman Brewery 91 Brick Lane London E1 6RF

Inside the Junky Styling shop

 I got into the shop and immediately felt at awe… lots of creativity with re-styling garments.

My brother who I dragged  along as my London-guide even managed to find a  cool re-styled coat for men that he liked, which says a lot seeing as he has no interest in fashion or if he does, its nothing in comparison to my me. 

The best part though was the fact that if one has no prior information about how these clothing’s are Crafted one would think they are brand new.

Wardrobe surgery is what  Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager, the founders of junky styling, do.

Truly inspiring.

I didn’t get to meet them but you never know.. it’s a small world. What I did though was buy a copy of their book which I think  is a must-have for any one interested in green fashion.

Be inspired
