Once again, Me, Mhairi Waddell also Layla Burns showed Kids Fashion Festival International.
This time it was in Glasgow.
It is a challenge to prepare the collection that mostly my designs are for the adult.
I started one to help with my friend model Mhairi last year.
Ronnie who organizes for the Cancel Cancer Africa allowed me without any kids collection.
I was thrilled to work with the so many fantastic kids are coming from all over the UK are helping models of my collection.
And this time it was in Glasgow, so there was no excuse not to meet Ronnie and Anne once again.
I was glad I participated in the show once again, kids and people who are involved in were fantastic.
12 shiny happy faces in Glasgow. They helped Cancel Cancer Africa charity for modeling in confident in public. What a brave young people they are!!
Just thinking about the name of col0ur how poetic can be!
So many new names appear every year, and enjoy looking at the name of colour!
When I was a child my Crayon and Watercolor had lots of “Japanese names” called “Wairo” that comes from nature.
I remember “Oudo-iro” ( Yellow soil ) is my least favorite because it gets hard very easily.
“Gunjyou-iro” (Ultramarine ) was my favorite. I don’t know just I loved the name.
”Yamabuki-iro”（Bright yellow) is we saw the flower all the time on the way to go to nursery school.
“karashi-iro” ( Mustard yellow) is spot on so I can almost taste the colour!
“Enji-iro” ( Burgundy ) I didn’t know the meaning but I know the colour…
“Azuki-iro” ( Red bean colour ) is nice to picture the image colour but difficult to make it.
We loved driving our Suzuki Wagon R in “Nasukon” ( Aubergine Navy blue ) .
Aubergine Navy Blue
Perhaps, you can make up lots of different name from traditional food or dish ” Sekihan-iro” ( rice cooked with red bean-pale pink ),
“Tamagoyaki-iro”( omelet yellow ), “Tofu-iro”( Ivory like white ) , ” Beef Curry-iro “( dark yellow-brown),
“Crispy croquette”, “Konnyaku-iro” ( Pewter grey like grey) , ” Oinarisan-iro” ( Pale Brown ) ….I can’t stop now! 🙂
I copied from the FB post. 🙂
Would you put makeup with those name of colour??? 🙂
Dress code, and formal dress…
There are many rules…
I don’t have any formal occasion to attend…but
My first experience of formal was an award ceremony of
Worshipful Company of the Feltmakers millinery competition at Mansion House.
I didn’t have any evening dress as a foreign student.
My mum was very happy to make and send it to me from Japan to London, and my boyfriend (husband) had to hire the kilt.
Recently I am a fashion designer who designing and making outfits and hats together collections.
I think safe to say my background is millinery.
It is a long time ago, but time to time better to mention this rather than sleeping in the file 🙂
Turning 50, my right shoulder is getting painful even though I do my regular exercise every day.
I visited my doctor and he reckons better to see the physiotherapist.
My doctor is very dandy and his background is Royal Navy.
He dresses very neatly ( Tweed 3 piece with tie or bow tie and matching pocket chief ) and I have to mention all the time.
He said dressing nice makes people happy. 🙂 I totally agree.
People dress nicely to make people happy is very good for the environment!
So relax people. if you feel nice, that shows!!
I am happy to help to make you happy, that is the doctor ordered! 🙂
Just thinking about what I have been doing for my whole life, and looking at the photo from 20 years ago,,, Perhaps not much different what I have been doing… Does it mean I am same all myself?? I don’t think so, because, what I am trying to do is much better than yesterday.
When I was in 20’s I was much braver and much agile than now, but I had much limited view than now…
What I am trying to say is I am constantly enjoying and creating new things for such a long time. Perhaps I have never been well known, but my imagination and passion are big enough to express my creativity in public for such a long time. I am progressing slowly in my pace…
I am a slow starter, but I am hanging on and moving to a better vibe. Just day to day work isn’t smooth due to all the circumstance… So thank you for everybody who was helping and supporting me out for making me going all the years.
I am as a designer, I don’t want to make people misunderstanding me. Since I am not a good speaker, I can’t explain very well myself ( I never do in English nor Japanese ). So I write my own thoughts from time to time to focus myself…( That is the blog for…)
I am a fashion designer who has a background of millinery that I used to get into all the time.
When I was working for Philip Treacy, I questioned lots of myself and world…straight from the graduation I was working there, I liked working there, I didn’t have enough base nor confidence to be a successful designer, but I left… Recently I am thinking myself because I thought that is natural to have a passion to design your own collection of top to toe…
In my design mission, I have to have compliment on the headpiece/hat or some kind of accessories to finish off my design.
When I design something I just have to see all the balance that is my mission…It isn’t domination, but I have to create my world as a designer.
It is number half of 100, but sounds like 50%. It is my age, I don’t feel anything different from yesterday but amazed myself as a number.
I am not much changed what people say since my 20’s. Because of my mental age of 27. I ‘ve tried to be better, to be good and to be the best for my life….. I am forever 27. Not over not going back so just right age of my estimated mental age. Since this is my blog, I celebrate my half way of 50% of achievement of my life. Not too ambitious but not less progress just right with my speed of life achievement. I don’t need to pose I am free from anything 🙂
I made a pie that I proud of their taste, so just I thought good time to write about this season!
Toco’s Veggie Haggis and sausage pie
1 Short crust pastry ( Ready to use )
1 vegetarian Haggis ( Ready to use )
1 sausage meat ( Ready to use )
4 boiled eggs
1 egg or milk for graze on the pie
I used all ready to use the material. So there is no stress for the cooking! Put the crusty pasty in the cake tin ( about 22 cm diameter 8 cm depth ) place the sausage meat in the case directly, so when you bake to make sure the crust is baked on the bottom that is the indication of sausage meat is cooked. Saved with roast vegetable and pasta salad, with gravy for the choice. Bake in the meatloaf tin is good, too. I think instead of crusty pastry, puff pastry also a good combination! Instead of chopped olive, I suggest chestnuts for the Christmas time?! I will try this for Burn’s supper… : )
