This is from the facehunter again

the facehunter

Can you tell how this was made? Congratulations! It's totally a modified vintage large shirt! Pleating the shoulder seam was genius! I'm totally going to do that to one of my old shirts I spilled wine on! It's going to be a whole new thing!

so excited.

More work in progress


I recently went vintage shopping and scored some of the most amazing polyester items ever. There will be pictures in the near future, right now I'm just procrastinating from organizing/sewing.

1. It's made of some crazy poly crepe thing with embroidered comma like shapes all over it. Black on Black. It has a cape. It's a button up shirt with balloon like sleeves up front and a cape in the back. It's amazing. It will paralyze you on sight.

2. Poly Georgette, in cream. This is a summer cocktail dress with shoulders borrowed from elephants. Gathered waist (elastic rouching action), and these insane sleeves. INSANE. I may end up altering this so the sleeves fall to the elbow and have a creme silk chiffon insert. Cause that would be sexy.

3. Every one says this item is goth. Well maybe it is, it's also amazing. Poly (again, but please note that every one of these items is made from surprisingly nice poly textiles that have stood the test of time). It's a mid 90's blazer with soft shoulders, fitted slim profile, and the center back is missing and replaced with lacing. Also the collar is really nice. It's from a canadian mall brand, so it isn't lined, but other wise is really well made. I'm excited.

Oh clothes, you make me happy.

It's show season again.

So the men's wear is out for F/W 2008 and so is Haute Couture. About 1 month before the pret a porter women's wear shows for s/s 09. Oh yeah, fashion.

OK so on the Men's side I've really only looked at dries. and this is what made me scream WANT.

double breasted shawl collar. how totally weird.

Oh and for the ladies????

from armani prive. Which is not my favourite line. I'm not in drapey, sparkley, gown things. But I am in this. This is what I want, well not exactly, but close. There were some prete a porter suits from Jil Sander that were really similar to this look.
It's a very feminine suit, while still keeping a bit of that 30's futurism that keeps coming back in little bits and pieces.
