Dressed - Official Trailer [HD]

The journey of a designer isn't the glamorous picture we see after their success but the bumps in the road of wondering where their next meal is coming from, asking the question "Will I ever make it?" and despite it all still holding onto that passion inside called the will that makes your charge forward at all costs just to get your point of view across. To let the world know your voice does count and that you have something to offer. I can so relate to this documentary, as fashion is an unforgiving relentless beast that can devour you and leave you in shambles and yet the love you have for creating it leaves you forging on with nothing but the clothes on your back to really call your own. I think every one who aspires to be a designer should see this movie..... who aspires to be anything should see this movie.

" Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way you live, what is happening" Coco Chanel

"About half of my designs are controlled fantasy. 15% are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs." Manolo Blahnik

End of Semester 2

Hey guys, had assessment yesterday have yet to know if I have succeeded onto the next but we shall see. It was nerve racking to wait for my turn to stand before the panel of teachers to hear their critiques. It's a funny situation though; to be judged like that especially when they may not know you at all and the remarks can be harsh, but it's the business you signed up for right? I feel so drained but still hopeful and still have that untarnished love for fashion. I may lack in the sewing skills but I do believe that if my job were soley to design I'd be ok. It will take time and practice and a lot of it, I don't know if I'll ever reach there but I am going to try. My fate at school may lye in the hands of others but my future otherwise is in God's and He has never let me down.

So sorry that I didn't take pics of my corset and other dress on the mannequin but I'll take flat pics and put them up.

See you then.

Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Wedding

After all the hype on the dress Bella wore two; one in her dream and on in the actual wedding. The actual wedding dress had a killer back with lace covered plunge ahhh, beautiful as I do love a show stopper back on a dress. Her shoes were beautiful as well I think they were Manolo Blahnik in collaboration with Carolina for this particular movie.

You'll see close up pics on this site. Enjoy and make your own judgements.
