Starting from a young age I have always loved clothes. My mum would put me in one set of clothes in the morning and by the evening I would have changed at least 5 times. My sisters would moan and carry on but it was important that I had a different look all the time. I would always make sure my church outfit was accessorised and my shoes shined. My passion has developed and since opening my dressmaking business I have a sweet spot for amazing fabrics. I hope to pass the tradition on to my own little sweetheart one day!
I just had to post this today. I have got back into designing, some drawing (what I can say looks like drawing) and my new inspiration is Jane Davenport. The daughter of very famous fashion designer here in Australia. I love the way the drawings she does are so effortless and simple. She also has classes that you can attend online or if your in Byron Bay, possibly in person. The pic above is just one of many pages from her journals. Do go and check out her website at www.janedavenport.com
Found this image today and just had to post it. Love how the use of grey and tones of grey have been used to make the complete party look a set. Most of all the something blue shoes on the bride. Devine!!
Found this image in an old magazine that I had and just had to post it. Valentino is just such an idol of mine the way colours and textures just come together is stunning! I love the way this sheer and delicate piece is just so different. Makes me want to attempt a version of my own..maybe not today but sometime really soon! Any quirky brides out there want something like this made, I would love to hear from you!
Ok, so its time to start thinking about Summer. Today I started making some gorgeous silk frilly skirts that I would love to put up on Made It when I am done. Will post some pics here once I have completed the size range. So inspired by all the new colours that are starting to drop in retail stores including some gorgeous pastels and bright fluro injections. Colour is just so exciting and makes the grey old winter just a little brighter. Head on over to Pintrest to view some of my inspirational boards.
Dinnigan...you have done it again. Please if you have the time, check out her brand new range of bridal and evening wear. The laces are just to dye for and the designs are just outstanding! Proud that she' Australian!!
