About My Dress
My own design
Navy Dotted White 100% Silk, Blackpool Navy Stripe 97% Cotton
Time To Create:
Dress Influenced By:
I wanted to create a dress that is young, playful but still feminine. The dress had to be unique, not something similar to ones available in shops. I thought of Mischa Barton during the design process. The dress is for someone like her - trendy, cute, girly and sexy.
The dress is my interpretation for this season. It's all about straight cuts and simplicity. The design was also inspired by a sailor uniform. All strips on the sides were hand sewn.
I named this dress "Paddington walk" so imagine yourself in this dress walking along Oxford St - Sydney's most vibrant arts and fashion street. (Do not imagine if you are a guy. If you have, well, it's too late to stop you now.)
Disclaimer: Do not wear this dress to work because your employer will not be happy about the distraction you will cause to your work mates. Also, do not wear this dress in winter (like what the model did) because silk and cotton are not the right materials for keeping you warm.
I'm such a lucky person having my beautiful girlfriend modelling the dress for me in one of the windy winter days. She is the nicest girlfriend I've ever known. She is a passionate beautician.
