Boulder, Colorad...






Look 3 of my senior design line, L’edge fall 2011 children’s formal occasion wear. For this outfit I wanted a versatile fabric and design for the child and the host(s). The suit features a lined jacket with exaggerated lapels and slanted button closure, skinny jeans and a long sleeved shirt. My model is five and was so great to work with!

      Thank you so much! Yes! That’s a huge size up from a 5-yr-old ;) but it can be done.

      Oh thanks! I really love utilitarian clothes or those inspired by 19th/early 20th century workers/farmers or to drop the word: communards. I also have a soft tooth for traditional German carpenter trousers (Zimmerman Hose) in corduroy
