FYI, I am writing this now as a 13 year old! Yes, the teenage years have hit, and I am no longer a ’12 year old blogger’ 🙁 Never mind! Anyhooo! You may have realised there has been a bit of a lack of my fashion designs recently. I have been very busy with sorting things out so I have finally, just got round to doing some! I decided I would do some with a bit more of a meaning, and something which has been inspired by something, instead of just random ideas coming from my brain!
‘Coat of Arms’ Jacket & ‘In The Camo’ Top & Skirt:I decided to mix 2 military style designs together to create a sophisticated, yet edgy and sport luxe look. I want the jacket to be a sort of felt fabric with a nice silk lining. The red would resemble the classic army colours, along with the blue. The gold detailing on the back and on the cuffs would be like bullets, and the cross over at the back would almost be like how soldiers carry the bullets. The Camo skirt and Khaki top would both be cotton, and could be worn in may different ways. I would probably price the pieces like this: Jacket – £80.00, Top – £15.00, Skirt – £25.00 and Boots – £65.00.
(Left) Feather Cape, Burnt Out Dress & Fire Tights. (Right) ‘Civilian’ Dress:I believe these two designs are very relevant for the things that are happening at the moment. With the wars abroad, I thought mixing the two together would be a current and unique idea. Like my ‘Sunflower‘ Cape, this is very similar, but it has ombre feathers and resembles the flames. The dress is simple and would be great for summer. The black dip dye at the hem resembles the ashes after the flames. With the tights being flames also. The second design is meant to be inspired by the ‘civilians’ of the wars. They are surrounded by violence, yet this dress would be beautiful on anybody, as it I think it would compliment most skin tones. If I could have a model for the dress on the right, it would have to be Cara Delvigne, as I think she would look stunning in it.
(Left) ‘Splashing Waters’ Dress (Right) ‘Green as Grass’ Swimsuit:You maybe thinking how these two have anything to do with the ones above, but they do! The water is something which is so important when it comes to tough times, as it maybe hard to supply etc and the people may not be able to get the water as a risk of going outside. I would want this dress to be a chiffon/taffeta dress, with big puffy shoulders, just like water when it splashes. This swimsuit is meant to be the grass and food, and how once again it may be hard to find in difficult situations like war. I would like it to be quite retro and be quite snug fitting, so it could suit most shapes and sizes. It may look simple, but I think a lot more could be added to make this much more interesting.
I would be very grateful if you did NOT use my designs for your own purpose. These have been created by myself in my own time. If you would like to use them for ANY reason, please email:firstname.lastname@example.org
