Artistic Autumn…

Recently I start sketching pencil drawing where I go.

It is artistic Autumn after all!! My body is saying to me!

Bathgate High Parish Church 3

Tall clock tower is difficult to draw on the 1 paper nor capture on smart phone.

What you need is pencil,eraser and sketchbook. If you have smartphone to take image, it will be handy to see the detail of the building.

Getting darker earlier now, so I need to draw quickly to finish off. They are done around 2 hours.

Why don’t you start drawing around where you are! I think surprisingly you will find it fun!!

Bathgate Hight Parish Church 2

I should have pencil sharpner and more pencil… I had  1 dull HB pencil. I found trees are difficult to draw with pencil, Also I should re draw this to focus on the building ! Bathgate High Church 26.8.2016

“Black and Red”

Recently, I am working on image development.

Today, we had another wonderful photoshooting!! I will write about it after the photo will be published.

I wanted to achieve “Black and Red” image!

Here is the process 1,2,3 or more!!

Toco New dress and 1998 Headpiece  idea for 2016 August shoot

Design is my favourite process, but building actual product is tricky, but I love the challenge.

Pattern black and red

To make dress, have to make pattern cut first! That is needing lots of calculation and imagination!!

cutting materials

Choosing right material with the design, also using right interface are quite a chance, but always learn from the experience.

 

Black and Red Dresses final

Crepe satin is great material for draping which I love.

Moodboard Black and Red

Mood board!! I love classic elegance and bold image!

And this year…2016 is 40 years anniversary for Punk…

So, when I was asked to show my pieces at night club in Glasgow, I couldn’t help it.

Hire: Black Headpiece

What to wear?

What do you wear when you have special occasion?

What do you care most?

Your shape, colour, fabric, and trend and budget??

These are most of us have to consider..

End of the day, what you are feeling conformable and confident is the best dress for you.

I design and make dress irregular paces along the hat making….( it is almost like my hobby.)

This time I have made mini chiffon dress which inspired from Kimono.

Why Kimono?Because, this is just the box dress.

Black and White mini dress 1

Box dress can be easy to put on and add things. I added satin bow to tie on left shoulder, with matching corsage.

 

 

On the left shoulder tie the satin bow to fix, and on the bow

you can wear the handmade corsage which can be on and off with pin!

You can wear the belt and wrap over and gorgeous accessories of your choice.

 

 

 

 

Black and White mini dress 7 wrap

This is the cape – pull over your dress with belt on. Easy way to cover up. Always you can use your elegant scarf, too!

 

 

Of course,I can associate with the hat to match with!!

What do you think??

I think chiffon is the very good material to care. not get creased and elegant move from air.

Put the top big makes whole silhouette slim!

This can be made for your colour, for you size and length for bespoke order!
