GOK is coming to N.Z, and will be making over hidden Cinderallers in St Lukes, Albany and Manukau City, Auckland.
Gok has inspired me every show, especially when I have writers block. Genrally 1 show will get me back on track, and inspire the fashion designer in me to thrive. I can’t wait to meet him, and blog about the whole Westfield tour.
The free events will take place on Tuesday, April 24 at 1.30pm at Westfield St Lukes, Thursday, April 26 at 6pm at Westfield Albany and Friday, April 27 at 6pm at Westfield Manukau City.
Well it’s been a great week. I’ve been on holiday all week, and I’ve been sewing for most of it. Working with my fashion designer friend Traci, who I’ll brag about next week.
We’ve been making 60 swing, Austin Powers style dresses, and poncho’s, it’s been really fun. We’re making costume’s for a fashion show, with models coming out onto the street to entice innocent bystanders. They’ll be wearing black bob wigs, bright red leather hats, and carrying a lantern. It’s not for another week now, so there’s no crazy rush, or sewing through the night, like usually.
The first job I finished this week is a boring drape job Read on »
It’s been awhile since yal heard from me, I’ve been pretty busy with my 60 hour a week job, tending to my family, and getting over righters block . A good friend encouraged me to take on righting half an hour daily to get into the habit, and that made me think, just get righting again, I love it, I’m good at it, and I have alot of very successful friends in the fashion world, that I’m going to boast about and show you how they started out.
This is part 1 of My Successful friends…
First friend I’d like to boast about is Tawa Hunter born Read on »
Well I know I haven’t blogged for a while now. I’ve really struggled to come up with something as exciting as the Libra Design project.
Sitting in my lounge Friday evening with a blanket over my legs, drinking a low carb beer, after a long exciting day at work, searching the Internet for a worthy subject to blog on I remembered my friends wedding a few weeks ago. A good friend I hadn’t seen in a while was wearing one of the best lil black dresses I’ve seen in years. It was drill thick fabric, simple, plain singlet like up top, and tailored, and layered under a belt waistband. I can’t remember too many details, as it was a long day/night of celebration, but I can remember my friend saying “Trade me!!”
So I researched further.. And it is true!!!! AND OH MY GOD!! Read on »
O.k fashion lovers, the show’s over for now, The Libra Design Project that is!
All the challenges have gone their separate ways, and I’m very happy to say I’ve been in contact with all of them. In the next few weeks I’ll be interviewing them to find out how the show was for them, and WHATS next??!
And anyone who’s anyone know’s that the winner Kerry is in the process of designing his catwalk collection, to show case his inspirational designs. I’m very excited, and can’t wait to see it.
Then I’m interviewing Qiulae and Trish, and hopefully Zowie when she’s back in Auckland.
Zowie contacted me, and forwarded me to her Zowie Dee page…Check it out! Read on »
The show was great, interactive, and an improvement to ordinary New Zealand T.V. viewing. Libra Design Project brought to life, 6 up and coming young designers careers. That will be talked about for a lil while now, and any kinda fame you can get in the fashion world, tops anything. So congratulations to all the contestants for the participation, courage, skill and uniqueness for being on the show.
