Oooh La La in Paris! Fashion Illustration

Good morning gorgeous. Happy Flash Back Friday Fashion Illustration! For this collection my instructor said we could either make a Holiday collection or any other type of collection. Well what do you know I really wanted a sexy collection I thought of Victoria Secrete as inspiration. This was going to be my lingerie collection entitled “Oooh La La in Paris.” This collection is by far my favorite! I was really inspired I had a vision. For this collection the fabrics I used were silk, sheer fabric, and lace. The color palette was black and white.

The back story: when I think of Paris I think about how exotic it must be and how it is known to be a romantic place to be. So with that said I decided one night in Paris with your significant other! I wanted the lingerie to be unique and sexy. The poses are flirty and give off a pin up style vibe.

Design number one: we will call her Rapunzel, since her hair is blonde and super long. She is wearing a corset night gown, the feathers underneath the skirt makes it seem as it could be a tutu. The styling is kept minimal; she has smokey eye shadow with red cherry lips, adorn with a rose. Her pose is exaggerated along with her long pony tail.

Design number two: she is wearing a corset with a sheer underlay and matching panties. Her accessories include fish net stockings, a vintage hat with netting and feathers. I really wanted to add some color and made her hair bright red. I pretty much kept the same make-up. For her pose I sat her on a little cushion chair.

Design number three: she is wearing a matching two piece set; the bra has an integrated necklace and hanging beads along the back. It is paired with ruffle panties. Her accessories include long white gloves, and lace stockings. Her makeup was kept the same as the other two. She is rocking the latest hair rollers on her hair lol and her hair color is a deeper red.


Material used: prisma markers, prisma color pencil, black pen,

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…

Heart Cut Out Dress

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I popped up on here! I've been crazy busy being a momma, wife, and a Etsy shop owner.  
It has been quite an interesting journey, very different from custom designing. I've learn so much these past months and I am continuing to learn. Hats off to you if you are a Boss Mom it takes a lot to run a home and a business!


I'll be sharing with you all some of my Etsy designs with you all incase you don't follow my social media or Etsy shop. Since we are still in the month of February I'll be sharing my Valentine's day dresses. I made two designs for my shop the first design is the Heart Cut Out dress.


For this design I wanted a fun focal point, I decided a heart cut out on the back would be cute. I started drafting and making a muslin sample I had to tweak it a couple of times because getting the heart shape wasn't as easy as I had thought. After three attempts I finally got the heart shape that I was aiming for. The f…
