PROJECT J

With less than four months and five pieces to make, I suppose I better get a move on. On a more positive side, the toile fitting today went well. I must say it’s an achievement since I’ve never done made-to-measure projects before, nor I’ve done anything that has to do with corsetry.

EXTRA

It is meant to be a cropped cape but looks more like a shawl…hmmm…

"a must-have for winter...so long winter gloves"

Not exactly sure what happened to the initial design of my cocoon skirt but I ended up with an ideal garment for winter. No need to buy a pair of gloves. Money problem?! Solved!

ADAPTATION

cocoon jacket

A paper cocoon-like structure coming to life for my second toile review. Unfortunately, the bottom half/skirt will not be ready on time.

krysaline

New toile for next week’s review, conveying distortion and mutability of one’s body structure.

first review toile

Oversize yet restricted. Colossal yet no room for arm movement. First review toile, which dictates the look of the final collection.

SWITCHed

morpho

Starting afresh with my toile (and my concept) for next week’s review. The idea of ‘The Butterfly Effect’ has been substituted with ‘morphogenesis’ – evolution of the structure of the body through mutated forms, geometry and organic objects.
