Katy Perry Fashion Illustration

Happy Friday fashionistas, let’s get started with “Flash Back Friday Fashion Illustration.” For this collection my instructor said to choose a celebrity whom we would love to design for. At the time Katy Perry was pretty popular and I felt like my design aesthetic was perfect for her. She is known for her colorful, extravagant costumes, and pin up looks. I wanted to still keep her in bright colors and fun silhouettes. I noticed that at the time she would always wear the sweetheart neckline; therefore I tried to give her different necklines. The fabric choices were silks, tulle, sheer, and denim. The color pallet consisted of purple, pink, green, and yellow. I decided to go with prints to make her outfits pop out.
The back story: Katy Perry is on tour, she needs different outfits throughout her performance.  She starts with a semi casual look, transitions to a more jaw dropping look, and ends with the extravagant gown.
Design number one: ok so I did design a sweetheart shape top, that’s just to ease her into the transition of a different neckline. I did make it less noticeable by placing the sheer crisscross overlay. I paired it with some cute boomer shorts, the inside of the pleats have different fabric making them interesting to look at while she is on stage. The styling is a bit out there the makeup is too much now that I look at it and the pigtails are cute but too childlike. As far as her accessories I just kept it simple a bangle bracelet and wedge shoes.
Design number two: this is actually the final piece she would rock on stage. I figured she’d come out either on a swing or floating down with balloons haha. I did a halter dress with high-low hem. The neckline has pink feathers and the bottom of the dress has tulle to keep the shape of the skirt. The hair is curled up with a bow head band. She has gloves and thigh high yellow fish net stockings.  
Design number three: she is wearing a pencil skirt dress with ruffled tiers at the hem. Her back is exposed and the front is a low cowl neckline.  I really loved the print it is fun yet elegant. The styling is based on the 1920’s flapper look, classic curls and a little feather hair pin. I really enjoyed pretending to dress her; she would be a fun celebrity to dress because she seems to be willing to try new things.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …

Behind the Seams I

It's been a while since I've done a custom design or a Behind the Seams segment. Today I will be sharing with you my latest work. A month ago I was contacted by a young lady to design a gown for a wedding she was attending mid April. She sent me a picture of a mermaid dress she had stumbled across. The problem was that she wouldn't be able to get it delivered just in time for her event. I came to her rescue j/k. I met with her took down her measurements talked about fabric choices and any other details.


Here is a sketch of the design.
The design consisted of a mermaid silhouette, the neckline was almost like a racer back. The back was exposed with tiny spaghetti straps. The back skirt had a tiny bustle. The hem had tulle peeking out all around.

The chosen fabrics were red peach skin, red lining, and black tulle. The notions that were used included an invisible zipper and thread.

I generally like to drape my patterns on the dress form over flat pattern. This method seems fa…
