Black and White

I realized yesterday that my collection for the upcoming RAW show is mainly blacks, whites & muted colors.

“How did you just realize that yesterday??” you may well ask.  Yes, yes.  Very good question.

All I can figure is that I’ve been so focused on creating, finding models, sewing runway looks, making time to sew as much as possible to sell at the event, finding music, hair inspiration, make up inspiration, and trying to not short change my spouse, that I kind of…..didn’t notice that I have been tending to lean towards black and white, especially.

So, I’m thinking on how to add a couple looks with color now.

Maybe the geisha inspired look will make an appearance….

Heading out for an Asian-inspired shoot today.

I played around with mixing prints after doing a little research on Japanese geisha-looks.

They mix prints so beautifully.  While I like how this turned out, I would have liked to have been able to spend a wee bit more time on it to fully flesh out the ideas I had.

Can’t wait to see the final images!

Bustier, Bustle, Skirt and Obi Belt (image shows it just pinned on–final obi is prettier and has trim/ribbon detailing) by me, Kimono style short robe is vintage.
