So much better than those hideous princess gowns and mermaid messes that seem to glut every single one of those terrible bridal shows that are cramming TV airwaves.
Say yes to this dress instead:
A few other favorites:
Now that New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off, I am becoming struck with a premature case of spring fever. I love examining the new collections as the photographs are released to the public. Every season, every year, this is my ritual. It is always new and exciting and inspiring!
It is still just the beginning of the shows, but a few early standouts for me are; Vena Cava, Kimberly Ovitz, Jen Kao and Nicholas K.
A lot of the time, for me, clothes tend to fall into two categories. The first is Wearability, where I imagine the garment in my everyday life, projecting an image that meshes with my personality, my moods and my activities. The second category is, Fantasy. This category is preserved for very special occasions. This is when clothing takes on the ability to transform you’re own image of yourself. You are able to try on different guises or be transported to another time or place; these are the clothes of your dreams.
All of the above designers’ collections fall into the first category. These all echo the mood and look that I want right now.
First and my absolute favorite (so far) Nicholas K.
These spring looks are filled with comfy, drapey, loose & flowy wonderfulness. Since it also has a touch of grunge and a muted color palette, its like a nostalgic, more modern twist on my teenage outfits during the mid-nineties.
Vena Cava also chose to show beautiful wisps of silk in deeply saturated hues and delicate geometric patterns.
Both designers did beautiful white moments. One structured and fitted, the other floating and free-spirited.
I’ve started a little series of animal illustrations.
This one is a sketch of a baby Fennec Fox. They really do have ginormous ears which just adds to their adorable appeal.
I will post a few more of my animal illustrations soon, and many more fashion illustrations. I have been having trouble getting my camera to communicate to my computer so that I can upload photos of my drawings. When the two (camera & computer) finally come around and decide to be on speaking terms again, I will post my new stuff. Meanwhile, I will try to sort out the issue or get my hands on a scanner.
