A while ago I posted a picture from the big, secretive art project I did and I’m happy to report, I’ve received a pretty good mark for it so I can now show it to all you guys!!! The theme of our year 11 studio art project (and I say our because it’s a joint project between me and G of Passionate Camera) was a mash up of stereotypes and metamorphosis. Weird I know, but I decided to go about it in the way I know best, through clothes. I hear the phrase “you are what you wear” a lot and explored the idea of people using clothes to hide who they really are and then slowing using clothes to show who they really were. So we chose 3 models to convey 3 changes (but to be honest with you, I just ended up playing with looks and fabric I wanted which kind of let me down mark wise) the first being a socialite who was a hippie at heart, second a workaholic who’s actually a homebody and finally a housewife(we used that term very loosely) who was actually a big party girl.All garments made by me, photography by G and models are friends Bianca, Victoria and Grace (Aren’t they gorgeous? Surprised they haven’t been picked up by agencies yet!)
Because these were made for the project and not to my measurements I have no choice but to sell some of the pieces!
Size 8 hand painted, super cute skirt. I think this would be great for a costume (though it can’t be washed because the paint is acrylic haha). Waist: 26 inches. $20 + PostageSize 8 gray, side peplum skirt. I wish this could fit me comfortably! Waist: 25 inches $20 + PostageSize 10 (possibly even 12) silk slip/nightie. Snap this one up quickly before I change my mind! The bust and waist is elastic so it’ll fit B-C bust and the total Length is 88cms. $20 + PostageAnd this is probably going to be my formal dress for next year, but knowing me I’ll probably whack something up last minute and that’ll bump this more formal version of the embellished lace and chiffon dress out of the spot so I’ll keep you posted if I decide to sell this too.
