Look 2 was designed for my first collection. I was immediately attracted to the subtle embossed polka dot fabric that I used on the neckline, waistband and bolero.
Another of my past designs that I dug out of the closet is this fun polka dot hooded top. I love the colours of this fabric!
You might be familiar with the vest shot in look 4 as I wore it with my bubbles skirt in a previous post. I wanted to shoot the complete suit as it really makes quite a different statement when worn as a suit. I had fun mixing and matching different textured fabrics whilst designing this suit.
I have to tell you, the white sculptured shoes might look uncomfortable but believe me, they are the most comfortable pair I own!
