I've continued with the print experiment I've started last year and came up with this paisley version for some of the dresses I designed.
It kinda reminded me of bacteria. Anyhoot, the response from buyers have been quite good. I have to constantly add new pieces in my humble little rack in the shop, not without the nagging of Loven to restock, which is good, no?
I've also done some explorations in tailoring, forgive the un-ironed state of the piece, which is inspired by band jackets. It's far from perfect but what I'm excited to do here is push the use of casual fabrics, in this case, cotton jersey and washed cotton, to achieve a more formal and structured look minus the paddings, fusings and internal structures. It's really impractical for me to create fully lined jackets for the weather here but it can be a bit chilly sometimes and a good jacket is essential. I've actually exposed the seamings and left them raw for that added 'destroyed' effect.
