My aim right now is to create original clothing that is marketable. I have to reign in myself sometimes, but I like what I come up with. The two designs below look semi-futuristic. Bringing up futuristic, check out a designer who's clothing reminds me of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985, starring Mel Gibson, co-starring Tina Turner). His name is Rick Owens. The first Rick Owens' collection I saw online was the womens fall/winter 2009 collection, and I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised. Here is a man that could work as a stylist for every futuristic movie that will be made. View his designs on www.nymag.com and www.luisaviaroma.com.
The clothing I try to make are easy to wear pieces with a combination of colours, especially if they are spring and summer clothing. My fall/winter clothing will follow the same vein but with a little more detail. Yes, I'm still working on it! Hard times now. Hopefully the day I show you some pictures will be the end of December.
My daughter is quite the designer. I have a collection of her clothing sketches and have made a few of her designs already. Whenever I see her new drawings, my mouth drops, I'm quite inspired by her originality.
Sweety bag, SK Clothes
She sketched this bag a couple of weeks ago, and I made the pattern and sewed it yesterday. This was made with recycled fabric. I really think it's cute, though I have to fine tune it a bit. The girl has great potential! While making it, I kept telling her it was a sweet bag, hence the name, Sweety Bag. I'll be making a few more in different coloured fabrics.
