School'd VCE fashion show

Had such an exciting night last night, it was the first time I have ever showcased any of my designs. Fashion design is one of my chosen VCE subjects this year and last night all the fashion students were lucky enough to have their own made and designed garments presented and modeled to 2 large crowds. Little did we know, there were fashion experts, professionals and several emerging designers in the crowd judging out designs. Soon we will find out who had one the few particular prizes which sound amazing!

For semerster 1 of this year we had a brief to design an outfit made of recyclable materials. I chose to make shorts, a bustier and a neck and shoulder pad piece out of various items from Clark rubber such as seatbelts, vinyl, swimming pool non-slip maps and metallic rope. My second garment had a brief of 'a decade in history' where I chose the Seventies. I designed a scrunched, laid back turtle neck, semi-racerback sleeveless top and matching high waisted shorts.

It was a thrilling night and got a great insight to if I do eventually get to have my very own fashion show, what it would be like.

Shimmers and scales

FIRSTLY, I would sincerely like to apologize for the poor quality of my photos recently. My SLR has some problems, I have no clue what's happened to it but it's getting repaired at the moment so hopefully it will be fixed real soon!
I wore this outfit to a fusion Japanese/French restaurant up in Daylesford which was amazing, pretty much art with food to be honest! 

Top - Alyssmn
Metallic jeans - MinkPink
Steel cap heels - Tony Bianco

Bleached leather

For some reason I would never have thought of a white leather batwing top but I just bought one and I'm thrilled and it's exciting me more than most my other clothes I've bought. I got it for a bargain at $20 - and for genuine leather and being a lined top, it was dirt cheap. I bought it from a sale which was held for the duration of a weekend at the top level of a bar/club space on Russel st. Admitingly, when I got there I was extremely hesitant to walk up 4 flights of stairs to a crammed hidden space but I guess it was all worth while.
