I contemplated whether to blog about formal or not, normally I refrain from blogging about my school functions/social life unrelated to blogging (had to hold back from posting the pictures from our fundraiser international ball a few months back) but I think formal can be a special exception. To be honest, I expected a whole lot of this: but it ended up being more like this:It was a nice night despite some of the usual disasters of running late/not finding a cab/having too many pres/dancing with sore feet/people stepping on your dress… Speaking of the dress, ta da!
I found it so hard to keep it a secret for the past month (or two?) leading up to the event because I’m over excited the type to post ‘in the making’ photos. The top is lace, sequin and modal, skirt is cotton and the overlay is silk chiffon, the back is all lace with a scalloped cutout. I designed it so the skirt is detachable so I don’t trip and hurt myself while getting my jig on to Swedish House Mafia (which they didn’t actually end up playing -shakes fist-)or end up with foot/shoe prints all over the bottom of the dress (even though I ended up getting a good slosh of pumpkin soup but that’s a story for another day). And so I didn’t have to design something else to wear to the after party.It took me substantially longer than any of my other designs as I just could not make up my mind about anything and everything and also because the bottom tier/ruffle is about 10 meters of chiffon. I paired it with all silver jewelry (including a new bamboo bangle!), Loubies of course and an abstract hardware clutch. No formal/prom is without millions of pictures with your friends. XXASAB
PS. I’ve added heaps of new designs for sale on the “Shop Angela Yang Designs” page also lots of pre loved (and some new!) clothes to the “Shop ASAB preloved clothing!” page. Go on help a young designer out!
