I enjoyed working with Malou and her entourage . . . . I loved that she gave me and the ladies of her entourage a free hand in choosing the designs and fabrics for the gowns. It was a pleasure meeting everyone, Malou! I’m looking forward to making a gown for you soon.
Vernon and I made something new for the Art to Wear (A2W) line! When Karrots of Live, Love, Lolz podcast requested for a camo skirt, instead of buying camo fabric, Vernon and I decided to make our own print.
Cheongsams or qipaos originated from Shanghai in the 1920s. What used to be wide and loose evolved to a tight fitting version just like Maggie Cheung’s wardrobe in that lovely movie, In the Mood for Love.
I’ve always had cheongsams in my closet and it’s great to know that some of my clients share my love for these wonderful pieces. Here are a couple of cheongsams we’ve made recently.
Made with batik fabric from Kota Kinabalu
Remember the crochet items I made last summer? I’m still making, selling and wearing them even if it’s the rainy season already. This particular skirt I always wear to work with heels or I use it for more casual affairs like parties or even just for a trip to the mall. Wore it a couple of days ago to a party and I paired it with a just plain black shirt.
