Fairy Godmother

I was thinking for a mini dress design for a girl who wanna celebrate her birthday, the first thing popped-up in my head was it should be blue, just like Cinderella’s gown.

Then suddenly there was a play in my head, me as the Fairy Godmother, and my client as Cinderella. My magic wand (pencil indeed) was dancing on a paper for a blue mini dress just for her.

Of course Cinderella’s blue is the inspiration, but my touch was indeed floral. My Cinderella wanted her mini dress showered in petals, and I made some combinations here and there to fulfill her request.

I needed to hurry this time, the request came in short timeline. Even in the movie Fairy Godmother told said “even miracles take a little time“, right?

And I worked my magic here, with my love to details of three dimension embroidery, hand-stitched on top of jacquard fabric.

Voila, the day had finally come and I happily looked at my beautiful young Cinderella standing beautifully entering the new phase of her life. Happy birthday sweetheart, thanks for awakening my inner Fairy Godmother.

Stay GOLD

“Stay GOLD!”, I said and I believed it would never fail.

It was my reaction, when my client came to me with this brief: BALL GOWN.

She wanted to look GLAM that night, and there is no color could go better and more glamorous than GOLD. In my mind I could see her sitting perfectly in simple silhouette ball gown with golden thread jacguard fabric.

It came in floral pink blossom motives, so tender and feminine. The rose gold we all love, it sparked in an intricate way, I bet she would have caught everybody’s attention walking to the room.

Day or night, this gracious gold will never fail. She looked just so strong, feminine and gracious in the same time, attention-grabbing and of course GLAMOROUS as she wished.

I have to thanks GOLD again this time, It has never failed to inspire me. Traditional or modern, when you ask GLAM then my answer will eternally “Stay GOLD”.

The Pink We Love

They said “The color pink makes everything look pretty”, don’t you agree on this. Let me add up something here, pink also make everything feel so lovely and sweet. It’s the color in your mood when you listen to Mozart.

I have always been inspired by this universal color of love, especially when it comes to designing dresses like this one.

Inspired by Chinese warrior armor, especially at the shoulder structure of this dress, it gives the strong and feminine look for whoever wearing it. It’s a modern dressed, inspired by 40s Shanghai women.

The best material for this is organdy silk, woven silk with golden threads in the traditional pattern of Songket.

Here, I never loosed my sight in refashioning our traditional pattern. It emulates luxury and elegance, the best for wedding occasions like this.
