Business...... what business

Well i have been really busy in my holidays because one main thing has happened:
I have a dress form woo!
well it is more like a display form but i still have one to make my designs on lol :P
so all through the holidays i have been making my designs and recently i had a photo shoot where i two of my friends (who wanted to be the models) show my designs and i am really happy with them
i will have a montage of all the photos on later but the first look was a business dress with a draped back and i love it :D

Pattern magic for the amazing and wicked

I was just searching for random crap the other day online i came across some really cool patterns and i was like "omg, i love everything about these" and did some more research into and there are soo many different and exciting patterns out there.

One which really caught my eye, which i will try out for myself and let you guys know how it goes, was from Julian Roberts.

This man is amazing he does course in advanced cutting and pattern making called 'substitution cutting school' he has a book out aswell which i think is amazing which has all the patterns which he had done and also hand written notes to make it abit more personal i think in terms of when people are reading it.
Anyway back to what i was saying before i go off on a tangent, yeah his patterns i was watching a video on youtube which has one person try the pattern out and i do have a photo of what it looks like as a pattern but no i dea how to do it myself (need to but the book) make sure u check this out it looks really good.

This is what the amazing STARTING of the pattern madness looks like and as you can see it looks amazing already and that not even the end of it. there are many different variations of this that someone can do and i hope you guys try and get to one of his masterclass talks.

Other patterns of his i have seen are just amazing and he will be at my uni at one point but you have to be a fashion student to go (i think) :(

Also what i have seen is amazing patterns on youtube again by an amazing man known as TRpattern and his stuff is wicked and all you have to do is watch the video and it can be really easily to create the looks

Also pattern magic the book is one book which i will get one summer, some of the dresses in that would be amazing to make and i cant wait to get it and get started on it.

this is one of the patterns which really caught my eye and i thought to myself i have seen someone similar to that and it hit me.... burdatsyle. one member on their did a similar detail on a jacket and it looked amazing

i dont know if it is the same (now looking at it probably not) but check her stuff out it is amazing!

The last place that i saw one my internet searching was the patterns of it is really interesting as some of the patterns in their even though they are vintage they will work soo well in modern times and i think they are really ones which need to do be tried out

one in particular i love is the cowl sleeve on the sleeve pattern section
just two examples of what im going on about:

print number 1

ok so this will be my first installment of my designs an i think i will start with a waistcoat with a print that i found which was an 'illusion zebra' obviously i wanted real zebra print (not the fur!!)

but i think it came out really good, however i didnt add a closure to it which i really wanted to but i think if i add it, it will not look to good! especially that it can be worn inside and out!
enjoy!! xx

You can see what i mean by the print not being exactly zebra but still has a cool design!

oh just another thing if you want to see more of my designs you can always go to, (to see all my designs)

Love for PRINTS.... MONDO god of prints

Everywhere i look i see prints lol

most recent i have seen has been MONDO GUERRA on the most recent project runway.... season 8! i absolutely love his work i think it is and always will be amazing, this guys knows fashion!!

ever since i saw his work i have been obsessed with prints, my three most favourite are as my title background shows: stripes, zebra and houndstooth.

i mean just look at his stuff it is amzing, from challenge one all the way to the finally, my four favourties of all looks are:

-look 8 the jackie kennedy challenge,

-look 9, the avant garde challenge (love the mix of prints here!!)

-look 10 the design your own print challenge, the story behind the print was just so moving and i am glad he won this one coz he did an amazing look and to win $20,000... hell yes!

-and the last look which was the inspiration look using NY! even though i think it would have been nice to have seen some colour in the look i still think he knocked it out the park!! it looks amazing, only thing that was not my favourite part was the fact that the model looked so tired and did not look how i think he would have liked her to look in the challenge!

this is a copyright phone skin, dont sopy please!!
i was that obsessed with it i actually had my phone cover to show all 3 of them and i think it looks amazing.... what u think?
i redid this about 50 times though until i had the right one in me head, originally i wanted to have the zebra mix with the stripes to look likt the striped turned into the zebra and i ordered it and i thought "you know what i dont like it that much!" so i changed it back to this one.

there are loads of sites where you can do this i think it is just a case of getting online and looking at what u like and making your own cover because u know that no-one wlse will have it and it just you and the cover (sounds really wierd that does, but you know what i mean)
i got mine from (uk, europe) , but i think in america there is

Where to start? =S

I think the best place to start would be to say welcome to my blog!! :)

I think also it would be good to say what will be posted on this blog! well it general terms i will be putting pictures of my designs on it and stuff that i have made and also anything that i see an inspiration and what i would do with that inspiration!

Also i will have photos of celeb icons of mine (for example ,LADY GAGA cheryl cole, rihanna, gokwan...etc), as well as my own style tips for men and women using my style and also what i see as being hot trends and stuff on catwalks

So i hope u enjoy reading my stuff and dont be scared to say anything u wonna see or like!

thanks xxxxxxxxxxx
