Below are pictures of *Elvira*. Named by my girlfriend, *Elvira* is a dress I made for my her earlier this year. The pattern used is "Kyla", purchased from Burdastyle.com. I must say gomene to my friends on facebook cause I've had these pixies in my photo album for most of this year.

Enjoy anyway :).

The photo shoot took place in Oshiba Farms; a park / onsen / recreational venue in Minami-Minowa.

The key to a great design is the tried and true storyboard. Defined by Wikipedia, storyboards are "graphic organizers such as a series of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing a motion picture, animation, motion graphic or interactive media sequence, including website interactivity."

Below are storyboards that I worked on earlier this year.

In the case of fashion design; a storyboard is blank canvas used to throw all your thoughts and ideas when putting together your collection. You can make it all yours: as scrap book looking or professional as you like!

Zippers Gallore

I've been rather slow getting around to viewing all that is Spring 2010. I just finished viewing Givenchy's collection and had to log another post.

This collection continues what has been on the gothic side of things. The zipper motives this time around is what roped me in.

Renewable Clothing by Fernando Brizio

“By placing colored felt-tip pens in the pockets of the dress its appearance changes over time. Within an hour – to one and a half hours the colored ink bleeds into the fabric and creates a one-off design for each occasion. The owner can then clean the dress and color it in a different way for each time they wear it.”

~ Fernando Brizio

A really simple and novel idea! The possibilities are only limited to the amount markers you have.

Chu-gakko no Matsuri

The JHS I teach at held a open day festival this past Friday and Saturday. Teachers and students had things on display for parents and other attendees to check out. I was asked to bring anything I've sewn. The school provided mannequins and a small cubby for me to set up:

Front and centre was my name surrounded by sketches I've been working on throughout the year:

I was a bad teacher and snuck out of the drama club's play to snap these:

This cape was made earlier this year but I never got around to snapping it until now.

Elvira made an appearance as well. Will do a full post on that soon.

The crowd started showing up so I took a snap:
