Show off your style!!

When I design clothes, I always finish off with the hat/headpiece ūüôā

I have to try each photoshoot with a different look, but I have used the same outfits for different occasions.

You know one outfit can transform the completely different look with the hat!!

These are the example of how the hats and styling make different!!
With fantastic model Mhairi Waddell (15), she can show the same outfit with different HATs to show off!!

Just thinking about the fashion…..

Hi,

It was great to showcase my designs in Edinburgh kids fashion festival 22nd September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/kidsfashionfestivalinternational

It has been a long time to¬†decide on the venue…
I had one opportunity that I was really looking for that had to cancel for the great reason.

It wasn’t anybody’s fault, just as it happens sometimes because we are not selfish!!

As a designer, people think you should be aiming for Paris Fashion Week for where all the best buyers gathering.

But in my mind saying, it is not my venue…

The reason why I was thinking that way because I really don’t want to go into the trap in the bad wheel of the

fashion industry.

The big brand is just wasting their energy for producing new, but same time burning them,

to protect their brand credibility.

I would rather serve my energy to people who need for. Waste not want! 

So I feel good when I did my show in Edinburgh with part of Cancel Cancer Africa Charity show with my dear friend

model who should shine in the huge stage like in the Cinema, or Paris Fashion Week!

The background is my fantastic models who walked the catwalk at Surgeon Hall with Edinburgh Kids Fashion Festival International. White Dress with headpiece is my beautiful friend Mhairi Waddell. In gold outfits is Layla Burns both did fantastic job actors/models talented girls who have a bright future!! Image by Anne E Milne

 

Kimono and dad….

During the Summer holiday, I went back home.

It was a bittersweet trip back, since my dearest dad past away

before we went back to see him….My son had so many things to talk to you, dad…

My wedding day with my mum and dad at The Russell Hotel in London.

Kimono

I was so lucky to wear this £30,000 worth Wedding Kimono on my wedding day

loaned by Philip Treacy when I was working for him.

Inside this red Kimono, I made white silk bird embroidered dupion kimono lined with gold embroidered silk satin with Shu-red Kimono sash belt.

I was so proud of my design of white kimono ( hiding the dress from Kevin, while I was making it till wedding day ) and styling, but dad said, so glad you got this Red Kimono because you looked like a bamboo doll without it!! (lol)

The headpiece was a generous gift from Philip, the fresh bouquet was made by my friend Mika.

Net gloves from my mum’s old one, Nails¬†were light blue, silk bag and 50’s style sandals from Angel’s Antique market where I used to live nearby….

I made you bring 2 decorated barrels of Sake all the way from Japan…
I made you big speech in front of people who don’t know much about…but your speech was wonderful and so many compliments from work colleagues, friends and family made me so proud daughter!!

But I couldn’t speak in front of you, because I burst into tears before finishing all and trying to hug you before leaving, you were so embarrassed. (lol)

I made you so anxious because I live far away from you….I didn’t return anything back to you, dad.

I will try to get home at least once a year to talk to you and mum, I promise.

My lovely dad in rest in peace now….
