Burgundy and Black Evening Gown

I entered The Australian Wool Fashion Awards 2012, and my evening gown was selected to be shown on the runway at the presentation night. I didn’t win any major awards but to see my design worn on the catwalk was amazing. It took alot of time to make as I modified many commercial patterns as well as making my own for this design.
