Mishawaka, India...






I had seen Beyonce wearing this jacket, and decided I probably could not go on living unless i owned it. And being that I was just fresh out of thousands of dollars to spend on one I decided to fashion one up myself. This is my interpretation :) My feeble fingers are still weeping from the hours, and hours, and hours of hand sewing all the beads

I am in love with the collar, it is SICK, i want to run away to paris with it and get married

Material Notes

The jacket was store bought, but all detailing was hand sewn by me.




Garment Type
Cotton, Lace/Sequins

    well, it should be on a Parisian runway, I think your moderate touches of beading to be better than the Beyonce version, it’s wonderful.

      aw, thank you! Being a stay at home mom, i dont really have many opportunities to rock it…. it’s a bit much for the grocery store…. but i did sport it to the Michael Jackson movie -SHA-MON :)
