I'm not sure where to begin talking - it's been a bit too long since I've done anything remotely, seriously sartorial on this empty, online space. Here's an incentive for you to get through this laborious post: you get to read my classmates' (and most loyal supporters - I suppose anyone who recites your blog post to you the day after you post it constitutes as one) guest post masterpiece. If you can't beat them, join them.
With RPROJECT finally over (and the subsequent Charity Auction at Millenia Walk the week after), I have no more excuses to put off the long-overdue post about my designs. At this point in time it would be useful to recall my numerous instagram updates taken in the midst of my work in the runway room, while having, for company, only a hot stud of a male mannequin. #singlegirlsclub

4 months back I posted a quick sketch of a few ideas I had for Heaven, and sadly to say they were way too ambitious for a first-timer. Eventually I toned everything down, scrapped the jacket, and went with an exceedingly simply done neckpiece made from the lace I managed to get from Chinatown (at none too a reasonable price). Sought something regal, something almost obnoxiously proud, and hopefully I managed to achieve something to that extent. (Although initially I felt it look too much like a cheongsam)
Lesson learnt: Crepe is a massive nonsense to work with.

To be quite honest, I couldn't come up with anything remotely acceptable for this design, until I watched Alex Clare's Too Close music video, which would explain why my model looked like he stepped out of Bleach. (I really toyed with the idea of giving him a sword) You can't see it, but the jacket is actually pretty well made.
Lesson learnt: Crepe is still nonsense.

"I'm not sure where to begin talking - it's been a bit too long since I've done anything remotely, seriously sartorial on this empty, online space. I mean, it's not like anybody is reading right? (cue support from loyal readers)
It's time to talk about the outfits i laboured over in the runway room, while making out with the mannequin (don't tell anybody), the only thing that wants me. But...it's inanimate. My outfits are testament to my vast experience in the fashion industry and my god-given design talents. The outfits are a product of solely my efforts, i mean, i am part of Runway after all. I trashed all the obstacles, i call this trash trashing trash.
H E A V E N: the designs are all wonderfully made because i am rednotion and rednotion is awesome awwyeahhh
