Flaming Red Tessuti Awards 2013

Added Aug 4, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






This is my entry for the 2013 Tessuti Awards. The brief was to create a knee length (or just above) dress that’s all about the WOW and NOW factor. Something that would fabulous at a red carpet event, swanky cocktail party, the races or a fancy formal wedding.
You must use either their Flame Red fabric which is a french taffeta or the Phantom Black, a dobby spot which is also a French fabric.
I was influenced by the Spring Summer 2013 Runway show of Chloe where the designs were full of ruffles, tucks and flounce! I designed it myself. I made the pattern after many hours of draping.

      Thankyou, this year only the judges vote, which I think is a great idea.
