Before the tough gates of school open tomorrow, and a ton of projects awaits every design students, there’s one thing left on the holiday must-do list that has to be completed, by hook or by crook (yes, i’m serious about this).
As we all recall, those huge chainlike necklaces seen at Louis Vuitton Fall 09 runway show are actually great inspirations that can spur a newer creation, with the help of fabric scraps I have collected (leftover fabric from fashion projects) and of course, a sewing machine. While some kind folks at Elle.com teaches that the most secure way to connect one chain to another is by using hot glue gun, I say a single line lockstitch with the sewing machine is more durable. Plus, you can use contrasting color thread to create a statement, especially if you want the artsy-farty look and all.
What more, if you think the necklace in Louis Vuitton was too clean-cut, you can also go top-of-the-hill with your designs, by using contrasting and maybe, contradicting pattern fabrics set against hi-shine fabrics and all. Afterall, being unpredictable is the key of Christian Lacroix’s game.
Well, thank goodness there’s no lessons on Monday after the Director’s Comm, I will have the free time to do my little experiment, and maybe, try out few other ideas which I’ve thought of the last hour. Wish me luck.
