2012 Thrive Gala and Awards Dinner

She requested a satin purple fabric to match the colors of their logo. The dress consists of several pleats running diagonally on the shoulders, bodice and waistline and skirt. I really loved the way the pleated waist accentuate her waist. The night was finally here, and she looked really beautiful!!



Diary of a Fashion Designer 2

Wow, it has been a roller coaster literally, I am super happy that I have been doing custom designs for friends & family. So let’s talk about custom design. What is a custom design?

The Vegas Dress!!!

So, a good friend of mine requested a dress for Vegas, it was rather interesting because it was very unique. The initial inspiration was Gwen Stefani’s sheer jumpsuit. Here is what I came up, I shorten the sleeves, and made it into a short mini skirt. I think it’s a pretty daring dress, with the sheer side panels, and the back also made out of the sheer fabric. I really liked the half peplum. I decided to integrate cups because it would be hard to find the right bra. Overall I'm happy with the outcome she was pretty excited to have her Gwen Stefani inspired dress. She definitely rocked the dress!!!
