It’s another rainy weekend in Melbourne but I don’t mind because Suki and I have had to stay indoors to style the looks for the Fair@Square fashion show.
I really did intend to do a blog about Jakarta Fashion Week with some pictures of amazing stuff as worn by Lady Gaga (yes, pretty exciting, sorry to keep you in suspense!), but that might have to wait until things have calmed down a bit. In the mean time here are a few more things that will be in the show on Friday.
Detail of a dress by Georgia McCorkill for The Red Carpet Project…
I’m pairing each of the 11 garment designers with an accessories label, and using my Fourth Daughter label with Georgia’s dresses, not that I feel that my creations are worthy of her beautiful gowns! I’d show you the things that are going to be on the catwalk, except that I haven’t actually made them yet. Um. Yeah. So that’s tonight’s effort, I suppose…
Meanwhile, someone who’s a little bit more organised than me and very inventive is Dearne from Mainichi. What do you think these beads are made from?
Let’s just say Dearne must LOVE sushi… the beads are made from the little fish-shaped bottles that takeaway soy sauce comes in! It’s a bit more obvious here:
Anyway, I better get back to work or the models won’t have any earrings to wear with Georgia’s dresses! It’s not like I can afford to sleep on the job, unlike certain stylist’s assistants I could name…
Your accessories would look amazing with anyone's gown and I'm not just saying that to be nice! How is the lovely Suki? Good to see you've got her hard at work.
Adorable and what a clever idea with the soya sauce bottles – how does Dearne wash them to remove the soya sauce smell I wonder?? Can't wait to see your handiwork too Leeyong! x
I love those fish containers! They can be a bit of a hassle to fill, but are so adorable.I meant to tell you that I read a blog and she had ANOTHER tabby cat that looked just like our Sukis, and named Suki. I went to a baby naming website and chose that name for her because it meant beloved. I had no idea it would be so popular! But our Sukis were and are beloved 🙂
