amourette @ msfw!

Love on the Run...way @ 1000 Bend

I can't really put into words how wonderful and how exciting it was to see my clothes up on a catwalk and for Spring Fashion Week no less! Many a late night was spent hunched over a sewing machine or a desk sketching way into the wee hours over the past few months, putting together this little collection of sorts and even though I knew it was coming I still couldn't believe it until I saw it! I can't thank Jacqui and Rachel enough, from Lowbrow Events who organised the whole cool shindig and who were so sweet and so kind to ask me to be apart of it, along with the other awesomely rad designers Eva Q and Captain Robbo. Also I have to thank all my amazing friends and both my brothers who came and supported me, it really meant a lot to have them there and absorb all the craziness! There was a mini burlesque dance at the beginning, a couple band sets and a performance by a few drag queens at the end, srsly an interesting night :P
If you can name the movie from which this outfit was inspired by, I salute you :)

oh amie!
i just received your comment on my post and wanted to say a big thanks on suggesting CAE! I've actually always been looking into short courses to study, was interested in pattern making except i just couldn't find a good one. CAE never came across my mind actually! i think i'll look into it, i definitely don't think i can handle studying it at night during the semester though.. i hope they offer summer classes though cause i definitely want to do something like that over summer!

thanks again! kani
