Challenge 5- Susie Country/places Design 2
My 2nd submission was my take on a hip young woman who lives or visits Shanghai, is drawn to the traditional fabrics and culture but wants to be her own more contemporary woman. I used a traditional silk embroidered fabric but made Susie's dress one shouldered and skin tight. I photoshopped the embroidery on her shortie vinyl aqua blue jacket and gave her existing blue and aqua tall boots to complete the look. Our At Home judge, Alexandra Cooper says: "The jacket is a work of art in itself." The Momoko used here is a Petworks Jelly Beans Momoko doll from 2004.
