Hello Ladies so it's been a while since I have written but I just been caught up with just finishing school and the madness that was and all the holiday hoopla. Well this winter break I am going to be working on many things like legit photoshoots and I am hoping to finish the looks I am going to present as a preview fashion show in the spring. This may be my last post for 2009 and if I don't write, Happy New Year lets welcome 2010

In a 90's Kind of World,I'm Glad I've Got My Girls...

So ladies I've been really busy like previously stated and I was working on my computer generated for class and they started looking like for a dress from the 90's. It was channeling 1990's grunge and isntead of going awya from it, I decided to go full force with it hahaha.But today when I was making my mock-up I realized that it was fitting soo good and if i find another eco-friendly fabric that it could look like quite a cute coat dress. I will post pictures as soon as I finish it. I guess I can no longer call it my Jane Mancini dress haha.

If I can't Have You...

Happy Turkey time everyone who is not in a strach/turkey coma. So it's that time to see if the public school system is still pushing the stereotypical portrayal of indians. Well anyways I have been very busy have many things to do for school which include two brand spanking new dresses TADAH!!! so one of them is what I am planning to use as the closing piece for my spring fashion show and the other is a BS assignment which has a lot of restrictions and must be a "eco-friendly" textile dress. So im planning on doing this very Jackling Onassis but modern day with off-white eco-friendly textiles and this light rose pink lace on top of the skirt and mandetory collar. I will have a very sweat shop intensive winter break :)

Golden Age of Love

I Don't Want To Be Friends...

Lee McQueen+Lady Gaga is like that child that you actually like :)I loved this song ever since I heard it in his Spring Fashion show and now we got the video. Here you go:

Oh Yeah in my world I finally got my own dress form all to my self, so I can start working on my spring fashion show. So her name is Maria Conchita Jacklin Onassis Garcia/Judgment, pictures will come later. Oh yeah and a update on my fashion show, I always said that Polka Dot Extravaganza was never a final name, and I am thinking about naming my show Stacy Mirkin, if you watched the L Word and know about Leigh Bowery, you'll know why lol. Tata for now

Runway Music

Hello ladies and ladies in the crowd, so I may be procrastinating on some work that needs to get done to bring you this message, but I feel that it's a must. Whenever I think of my shows I always think of them as a whole package, and for runway music I have always wanted to use this Kylie remix I feel in love with almost 2 years ago, I think it would be perfect because it would set this serious tone to the girls walking. But anyways i'll most probably end up using it in my Spring student fashion show and see how it goes. Over and out...

I'm Your Biggest Fan...

Now that the crazyness of October is over with I can really focus, not that I haven't because I have been beyond busy this sesmter in school. What's new? well I want to post a picture or pictures of my new dress which is very carrie circa 1970's as soon as I get it back. So I have yet to see my Nautical 2099 dress back and miss it and want to do a group picture with the rest of the Odd one's out. I also need to staret working on my show for school that is for Spring but I am going to put so much energy into it that it's going to look very professional. I am out for now and hope to put more content online.

oh noo it's poison....

Hello all, I love Kylie soo much and I have watched this video a million times, it is one of the background shots from her X2008 show, so i believed it deserved a great spot in my blog. So pretty much I am just writing this blog to randomly write lol. Yay!!! I am going fabric shopping in downtown which is one of my favorite things in the world I wish I lived closer to downtown. So I am most probably going to start working on my fashion show for this spring which is currently being called "Polka Dot Extravaganza" and is inspired by Leigh bowery and the club kids scene.

There's Never Any Time....

So I've been keeping pretty busy lately and will be for a while in the net coming months. Like mentioned before I am participating in a couple of side event one which just passed this past Sunday and was for a Woman's Center fashion show. I donated a dress and sadly no one bought it. It's probably because I made it such a small size lol. I hope I get it back because I really like it in the end and didn't want to donate it :). I am thinking of gathering all the none collection clothing I have made and put it in a little photoshoot called "odd one's out." Here I have a terrible picture of finally complete Nautical 2099.

These Pictures are reflecting A lot of Blue because of the suns light, but the belt is actually Chocolate brown. I really ended liking this dress and will probably end up replicating it.

Keeping Busy

Hello TV land I have not forgotten about my blog... So i've been busy lately trying to finish my first collection, which was suppose to be done already but due to soo many problems I had to slow it down. Even though I have not been blogging, I have been keeping busy. I am currently working on a Charity piece which is almost done and I am currently calling Nautical 2099 and I am about to imbark on a couple of other side projects which are all good opportunities for me to get my name out there to different groups of people. Oh yeah speaking of getting my name out I finally got my Business cards which felt like they were at the printers forever. Anyways you can see them here as well. Soo much is coming up which I am excited about and I'll make sure to post more often again.

Hitting A Wall

So Lately I have kinda lost some Momentum on working on this collection but today was my first day working again and I was able to fully complete Celestina, zipper, lining and all just waiting for someone to wear her :) . I decided I want to go to west valley again this semester and I feel that with that workspace I will be able to accelerate the pace of my working because i will have a better and larger work space.

Celestina Cometh

So I have Remade the old cocktail Lace dress. If you have seen pictures of the old one you might not see the differences but i picked a better black fabric with a Sheen and I have made it a size 8 instead of a size 10 which is like a size 4 retail. I was able to keep the old lace which was the main focus of the old dress and I fixed the plunging neck line because in the previous dress Girls were scared because it was way too revealing. In case it wasn't obvious through the title The name of this Garment is Celestina as I like to name all my garment. The pictures you below are the original, two of the new and just for fun a colorful Bodice that was cut for a practice fit.

The Untimely Death of Adele Channing... Sneak Peak

Hello out there in TV Land...
So I decided to take pictures of some of the garments I am working on For this summer collection for whichever season it was meant to be haha. So just a word some of the garments looks ill fitting because my mannequin is not the same size as my garments.

This dress is pink because it's a prototype all of
the garments in this collection are dark colors.

The Untimely Death of Adele Channing...

"The untimely Death of Adele Channing" is the working title and most likely permanent title for the show I am currently working on. The pallet is dark consisting of black, purple and blues. I am hoping to finish it before this summer even though it was suppose to be a dark spring collection, I am still working on it. I am having difficulty coming up with more looks because I already have over ideas rolling in my head which will be revealed after this one is done. I will post pictures of what I am currently working on soon because I hate taking pictures of uncompleted work. Enough rambling for tonite...
