Up close and personal


Here is the photo shoot of my last fashion show!
You can see the eyelashes I made, shoes, hats, and two extra outfits
photography by: Heath Orchard





















edit: someone asked for a detailed description:

My collection was inspired by the mysterious treasures of the sea.  I researched hermit crabs in clear glass shells and organic sea shapes for the aesthetics, while using hat making techniques for construction inspiration.  I  molded giant lobsters and shells into existence.  I made sure the raincoat embodied the glass shells in the hermit crab experiment, while the silk dress underneath was as soft as the body of a hermit crab.  I made my own resin crab and shell zipper pulls and shoe clips.  The prints on the linings, dress, and blouse were all designed and printed by me.  I made extra accessories as well: shell hat, plastic rain hat, and eyelashes.

i guess i just got bored of the blog about a year ago. haven't updated much since then! but since i can't NOT put crap on the internet, i moved over to tumblr where i document the odd and awesome events of my daily existence via my phone cam. it's boring, so don't feel bad if you hate it. hahah

i've been following you and your sister on tumblr, so ... see you there i guess.

BY THE WAY, if i will for a second shut up about myself... LOVE the collection! i remember when you posted that very first scalloped dress. have you officially graduated now?

hi i love yr tumblr!! but the way your layout is that when it comes up on the dashboard view, you can only see the text and a little blue/white box instead of where the picture should be, you should change yr layout so you can see the pictures because thats the best part!!

mispapelicos said...

Not another day without a post, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I am so much looking forward to your next one. I have been looking at everything you have been doing from the very beginning and i cannot get enough.You are such an inspiration...and I am not easily impressed.
Un abrazo and random kindness as needed
