HOLLYWOOD VINTAGE

Here's a recent outfit (a bit warm for the LA weather) but who cares.. I got the skirt from a vintage shop in Hollywood Vine called 'Iguana Clothing'. It's a huge shop stacked full of vintage clothing. My kind of place! Most of what they have is reasonably priced as well. I also got a vintage military hat for 10 dollars which I love..





ILLUSTRATION ❤



SUMMER

Below there are a few summer creations I made, the pinafore dress was made using a gorgeous cloud fabric. The paint splatter effect material was used to create a high-waisted, full skirt.



ELLEKRISTIE

Here's some promotional material I created for my brand campaign in the final year of my degree. Much of it was inspired by high-end designers like Chanel and Prada. I wanted it to translate a simple and timeless style, with a quirky edge.





CREATION

Here is a dress I made using a similar technique to my metallic leather skirt except I used a much thinner net fabric which shimmers and reminded me of the night sky, very in tune to the space aesthetic style which influenced the collection. Yet the garment has classic/vintage shape, contrasting the futuristic theme. The sketch below shows my original idea before working on the garment. (Obviously with this dress an undergarment would need to be worn! Its Extremely transparent material!!)



FIRST DESIGN COLLECTION

Here are a few images to show the development of a collection I created for a promotional campaign in my final year of university. I used lots of shimmering fabrics and metallic leather fabrics which I experimented with to create something futuristic with shape. I also experimented with fake furs, the dip dye affect, and fabric graffiti spray. I was influenced by space aesthetics and futuristic creations.

AWESOME FABRIC

Here's a dress I made over the past couple of days. I had hoped to pick up a collection of chains to wear with it, but i have yet to find any. The material has a dip dyed effect which makes it very bohemian, I love a bit of boho. I wanted the skirt to be quite choppy and quirky. Underneath theres a bronze leather underskirt to create lift, and also privacy as the material is very see through! And to finish i had to wear my illuminati necklace..
