The second one hopefully...

Just modified an existing shape to this...

Now it's in pieces to make the actual design.

Design Development?

On the left (smaller picture) is the original version where I sewed up the zippers...

On the right, on Photoshop, I added more zipper on the upper towards the front...

Note: Workmanship is rather crude since this is a prototype....

PS I know this idea has been done numerous time...so here I would say...isn't it like adding your own ribbons or buttons on your own clothes/accessories? :)

The Massacre of The Shoe Lasts...

Last Friday, I went to Northampton with a group of friends. While getting leather from one of the suppliers, we came across this...

Photos taken on my phone using the application: Hipstamatic. You pay for it but I love it!


Idea near formation?

This is the rough stage and was lucky to find a heel that fitted perfectly! :)

Hats at Selfridges

While running an errand for my project yesterday, I came across this…

From the information next to the hats:

"Cabinet no. 1

1) 'Echinoderm headdress'
Das Rees for Alexander Mc Queen

2) 'Dragonfly no. 9'
Emma Yeo

3) 'Headdress'
Zara Gorman

4) 'Shell Hat'
Zara Gorman

5) 'Leaf Hat'
Philip Tracy"

While walking towards my bus stop, I took a picture of this...

This window displays an environmental awareness to the sea and coral life.

A 45 second sketch

Perhaps a rough idea of my current project? Hope it will not be tacky! Remember it's just a quick sketch while watching not so great music videos on TV…

…and just a tiny sample…
