Have a word

I would love to tell you more about this friend I am designing for, but am struggling to find the words. At first I wanted to introduce her
as an artist, but to me she is so much more.

So for now, this is what I have to say.

She is someone I care for, someone that makes me smile, someone to eat pie with, someone I lived with, someone who supports me,
someone to dance with, someone not to think with,

and someone who I respect as an artist. Why, I will show you next time.

Misty

The start of a new look.

I covered a deep skin tone lace with an off white sheer fabric for a misty effect.

Minimalistic glamour was the starting point in creating this combination.

The source of the inspiration is my friend who I am designing this for. Her newfound minimalistic approach to life after
a glamourloving style that often reminded me of Hollywood divas, made me find this freshness.

You will see, there is a lot more to be inspired about.

Afterthoughts

After inspiration comes creation.

I carefully combined materials in an architectural way.

Cuttings became cut-outs, lines became straps, silliness became softness.
