Here’s a look at the first real project produced in my experimenting class.

If you’ve been following this space closely, chances are you have already seen a few glimpsesΒ of a school project I’ve started at the beginning of the school year.
It was recently finished and presented, so now the time has finally arrived to show you the finished result!

The assignment was to create a wearable object inspired by a geometric form. This work was based on the circle and the feeling it creates for me.

Want to see another fashion school project? This one is an accessory but was very fun to do and there’s braiding involved… πŸ™‚

Hey! I’ve got a new project ready to share with you!
It’s one of my favourite from all the latest creations from fashion school and it’s not even a garment. πŸ˜‰

If you’re a fine observer, you might have noticed a round shaped pouch that complimented the look of one outfit during my first fashion show. Well, turns out it was another school project that got repurposed. Why not use everything that’s available? πŸ˜‰

First fashion show: check! :-)

On Sunday, I took part in my very first fashion show! Want to read about it? Here’s the recap with lots of pictures of the event.

Oh Wow! What a ride these last couple of weeks have been!
I’m so happy and proud to say that last Sunday was my very first time participating to a fashion show. And let me tell you, even though it was a great experience, some part of me is happy that it’s over and that I can have a life back! πŸ˜‰

But let’s start with the beginning.

Hi Blogosphere, I’m well and you?

Let’s face it, until June 2016 things are going to be hectic. Even with the best organisation skills in the world, when juggling too many balls simultaneously a few are bound to be dropped. I knew this when the admission form for fashion school was sent but still, it pains me not being able to write more often on here.

But on the bright side I had a little feline help while working from home! πŸ™‚

Fashion school has officially started!

Intrigued by my recent creative endeavour? I’m telling you all about the first few weeks of fashion school right now!

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve wrote or done something for this blog… Don’t get me wrong, this space has never felt more inspiring or tempting, but I recently started a “small” side project that completely took over my life: I’ve started fashion school! πŸ™‚

It has only been a few weeks since this programme started but I’ve already learned so much. It’s so exciting to get up in the morning knowing you’ll have fun all day long trying to come up with interesting ideas. The programme I’m following is specifically geared toward finding new innovative concepts and creating appealing new fashion. This means that we have time scheduled to experiment and try out new things in order to broaden our horizons.

What motivates you to sew?

By Coralie, in Creative life – 0 comments

What motivates you to sew? What’s your drive when you’re starting a new project?
What part of creating something with your own hands, whether knitting or sewing makes you return to the sewing room day after day?

These are questions I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. And for me it’s all part of an never ending quest to find answers and solutions to productivity problems. It seems a lot of other bloggers out there also have the same problem. How many times do you read: “I’ve got my sewing/knitting/insert craft mojo back”. It’s a frustrating thing to loose and inconveniently is always seemed to get lost when you need it the most…

But there’s a solution, I’m sure of it.

Are you a maker? Can you always be found sewing and creating things? Here’s 10 signs you’re part of the team!

We, makers, all have strange habits. And even if the rest of the world can’t seem to really understand them, it’s always nice to find another person with the same quirks you have.
So in the spirit of community, here’s a list of 10 things we, makers do. Hopefully, I’ll not be alone with this! πŸ™‚

Without further ado, here’s the list:
