Just recently I completed a year long course in fashion design which involved shoemaking. Here I am sharing some pictures from the final exhibition.
The first dress is a creation designed and fabric selected by myself, made by a fellow student. The final result is a creation that I can wear whilst ballooning. To display the garment, I made a balloon characature of myself in a balloon dress holding a balloon dog. That was fun! I'm planning on wearing the dress for the first time at a birthday party this weekend.
Next up is a dress that I designed that features a 3-layered tulle petticoat to give it bounce. I call it 'Dessert Time' as it invokes images of yummy treats. Don't think I'll wear this dress ballooning though!
Aside from drawing inspiration from desserts, it was also inspired by a dress worn by Kate Miller-Heidke and my love of rainbows (unfortunately I could not find the right rainbow, so used pink/cream instead).
Above is a shot of my final shoe in progress. Don't worry, it has a friend!
