Lady Isabella, new style in the Victorian sector! [26 Oct 2011|09:08pm]

A couple of weeks ago I had an amazing shoot with Pierre Leszcyk from Empire Art, Julia Lesczyk who did the great hairdo and model and MUA Sèraphine Strange!
The location was Kasteel Oost who has their own International Butler Academy, which resulted in great service and very appetising lunch and always a drink ready.

Victorian Bonnet [04 Nov 2010|05:41pm]

Made for a client a beautiful Victorian Bonnet from the Crinoline period.
The full bonnet is made by hand, first a buckram frame is made and then coverd with black silk.
Unfortunely you cannot see the burgundy silk lining coverd with black lace and pleated.
It's the same burgundy silk used to embellish the outside of the bonnet, the bonnet has black silk ribbons to tie under your chin and black velvet bows on the side.

An interesting read, especially for those interested in making or restoring their own jewels :

ANTIQUE JEWELLERY : Its Manufacture, Materials and Design – Duncan James

 “Much jewellery take the form a favored talisman or symbolic device related to religious faith or secular interest, and that other passion, love, has always been a major reason for the giving of jewellery. However, above and beyond all of this, jewellery has a decorative purpose-it is designed simply to adorn the individual.”

The Victorians and Edwardians at Play – John Hannavy

 “The whole idea of leisure time and leisure pastimes was, for the majority of people at least, a hard-won privilege unheard of before the nineteenth century reform of employment rights…”

             A companion piece to Hannavy’s delightful Victorians and Edwardians at Work, At Play is a showpiece for photos and picture postcards from the other side of life in the era.

Sewing related, but cross posted. [21 Nov 2009|07:51pm]

Sorry if this isn't allowed, or if I've spammed your entire friends list, but I'll keep this pretty short.
I am a Fashion Design student, and should be graduating in May (fingers crossed). This means I will have LOTS of sewing and mad preparing to do for the senior spring fashion show. My dear friend has promised me a dress form/mannaquin for my Birthday ( it was in August) but *I* had to pick it out, because he tried, and felt WAAAAAYYY in over his head about it.
So I inquire with all you lovely folks, what's the best out there? In regards to brand, reliability, lasting quality, ease of use, durability, etc?
I would LOVE something that is adjustable in size, but it is very important that I have quality in this, as my dear friend is a bit of a life saver, and this will be my one and only dress form for a very long time.

So? Ladies and gents? From your experiences, what do you suggest?
