It Does Really Take 2 Minutes…

Hello There,

The good weather is finally here and I can put on my waterfall vest that I made at my draping class as a fun, extra project and get out. I think this vest is really useful for spring time when you need that extra layer just to be on the safe side. This vest did really take no time to make and I just added some beads to it to make it unique.

One Shoulder…

, , , , , , ,

Hello there,

I sewed this leopard dress during my Christmas holidays but haven’t got the good weather to take pictures of it so I decided to take the pictures indoor. I don’t think the quality of the pictures are as good which means either I’ll wait for warm weather or get a new lens.

I am not a big fan of one-shoulder garments but I just wanted to have one for this summer.

Let me know what you guys think of it…

Hi there,

Lat week was the world mastercard fashion week here in Toronto. I attended the last two days of it with my beautiful cousin but I wish I had attended to all of it. hopefully next year. I did really love what I saw. I am also posting what I wore to those to days of the show that I attended.

Some of the pictures that I am posting up today are mine and some belongs to the facebook page of this show. Here is the link that you could get the designers of this show. Through this link you can just click on the full portfolio of each designer and see the whole collection that they had on the runway. – http://worldmastercardfashionweek.com/designers/current-designers/ – I absolutely love the Stephan Caras’s collection and Triarchy’s collection.  And here is the link to the facebook page of this runway show – https://www.facebook.com/wmcfashionweek -.

At IFFT Conference…

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi there,

Spring/summer is on its way to Toronto which means I will update my blog frequently.  Last week I was at International Fashion Festival Toronto (press conference) which will hold the show in May 23-25. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures from my own camera at the conference and I didn’t know any of the photographers, so I have got only these few pictures from them so far.  I will update this post with more pictures as soon as I get them.

I wore my cut out white dress with black knitted scarf and black knee high boots. I always wanted to re-do that post but hey, here is just a new combination with that white dress. Here is the link to that post, ( http://firoart.wordpress.com/2013/01/15/2013/ ).

At this conference I met Marc Robinson, Indian model and actor as well as model coordinator and choreographer. And I also met Omar Qamar CEO and founder of  IFFT.

Transformed Wedding Dress

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Hello there,

Believe me, the cold weather outside here in Toronto is the only reason that I haven’t been posting as much. I do have a couple of pieces sewn and ready to be posed but it is very cold outside and I don’t have a good lighting inside.

During my Christmas break I decided to DIY my wedding dress because I am not good at keeping things that I don’t use. well, I did but I don’t think it turned out very good. This would be my last DIY ever because I found that sewing from scratch is easier for me than transforming something. So here I’ll post some pictures of my wedding dress and then pictures of the DIY wedding dress.

I got married to my boyfriend in Melbourne, Australia in 2009 ( at a very young age). These pictures are from our private wedding with only much loved friends we had there (since neither of us had family there and the wedding happened so fast). It was the best time of our lives.

I had a long hair back then and I had no clue one day I would be sewing my own dresses or get into a fashion school.

Hello There,

Its a very cold January day outside here in Toronto( not as cold as few days ago though). But I decided to take these pictures of the dress that I sewed during my Christmas break.  I am sorry that I frowned in the pictures; it was cold and I just got back from school and wanted to post the dress today. I can’t wait to wear this dress in the summer.

I hope you like it.

There Is A First…

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Hi there,

should I say again; long time no see. I do really really try to post new things that I have done but the truth is I have only done my homework so far, Nothing beyond and above. I am getting to the end of semester slowly which means I will get some more time to make new stuff and post more. Well, talking about homework, I have got some homework that I wanted to post.

There are things that I always wanted to do and there are things that I would never thought I would do. But, there is always the first time to everything either I like it or not. so, I have designed my first skirt ever in my drafting class and I have made a muslin of it to check my patterns (these were all homework). I have got a picture of my skirt. It is a size 10 but I put on a size 8 dress form. I am sorry for the bad fit. The pins on the skirt indicates that I changed that part of the pattern because I didn’t like the original look.

And these are my first fashion illustrations that I have done. Just to be clear the fist illustrations had to be done in all the animal prints that we learned in class (otherwise I wouldn’t squeeze in so many patterns). The second group of illustrations had to be winter line with all the textures we learned in class. Basically my focus was on the patterns and textures not designing a new idea. I never thought for a second in my life that I would ever do fashion illustration.
