My little dress collection

I haven't posted that much lately.. sorry about that, but I was working on some projects at school and spending my time off doing anything but homework. The good thing about it, is that I love the type of homework I'm having and the class I'm taking this quarter. The class is named "Portfolio Preparation and Presentation" and this is the last class of the last quarter at school..I'm almost done and very soon graduated!!! ( very excited :D). What we have to do in this class, is to develop a entire collection that reflects our design philosophy, in other words our style or point of view as designers. I'm learning a lot in this class, plus my teacher is awesome! I love her ideas and the way she encourages us to design thinking on the planet and our environment. Even though sometimes I don't have time for sleeping due to the amount of homework we have to do, I love blogging and this has become one of my new hobbies..I'm sure I'll have more time soon to keep writing about different things.
This time, I wanted to share with you the little collection I was designing for this class last week. This collection is inspired by ethnicity. I love ethnic fabrics, textures, colors and handmade details. I used colorful embroidered fabric for this collection which is actually an "item collection". I designed dresses using both solid and embroidered fabrics. This little collection includes only eight dresses. I'm working now on the rest of this collection which will include sports wear, tees, evening gowns and children's clothing too. So this is just the beginning of this project. I will be posting more soon..I hope you like it..
Lots of hugs to all of you :)


  1. Hi hope you enjoy in your class room can you tell me for design my dresse I have Thai silk but i don't know how can i do for design.
    Thank you for advance.I like your idia

  2. Hi Play Girl Pemala! Thank for your comments and for checking my blog :)
    Silk is one of my favorite fabrics!..the design depends on the kind of silk you have. If it's a light weight silk like silk chiffon, a cute little dress or blouse would be nice. Chiffon looks very feminine if your are looking for details like ruffles or if you like movement on your outfits.
    But if it's a silk taffeta, you may think on a cocktail dress or an evening gown. If you like pleats silk taffeta is a great fabric to do so. A dressy blouse is another option.
    Thanks again!
