Spring has sprung here at the atelier and we’re going into full production mode on our Spring designs. Thanks to a wet winter, the yard is a riot of color and it hasn’t stopped yet. Stay tuned for more!
1883 Harper’s Bazar gown, scaled from an original sheet, extant hat, and four kinds of pleating. Train detaches for walking length… those Victorians designers were geniuses! There’s a bridal version of this on my cutting table to finish, too.
It was a long night for us and now it’s over! 🙂 Besides an afternoon fashion show, we also participated in an evening presentation so once again, the models did a short walk-through between sets at the main Saturday night ball. It was an exhausting day but definitely worth it. Stay tuned for more! 🙂
Things are starting off slowly as we get settled in and try to bring order to the wardrobe that we’ve brought with us. It’s a good thing that we didn’t have to travel halfway around the world by plane carrying all this stuff. 🙂 The fashion show at Clockwork Alchemy begins at 1 pm tomorrow, Saturday and we have six models we have to get prepped so it’s the calm before the storm now. More coming soon!
