WHEN I GAVE MYSELF THE GIFT OF A NEW DRESS FORM IT REINVIGORATED ME TO PLAY WITH OUTFITTING DESIGN AND SEWING AGAIN. REINVENTING GARMENTS THAT EXIST MAKES A GENTLER FOOTPRINT ON THE PLANET. I'VE ALWAYS LIKED THE IDEA OF NOT SEEING MYSELF COMING AND GOING ANYWAY.

THERE IS ALWAYS A BIT OF BACK TO SCHOOL FOR ME ALTHOUGH THOSE YEARS HAVE LONG PAST. IT WAS THE TIME TO GET ORGANIZED AND GET BACK TO WORK. THE STUDYING WAS BALANCED BY OUTFITTING AND THE FUN OF CREATIVE PLAY. OUTRAGEOUSLY PRACTICAL STYLE TAKES ME BACK TO DAYS OF READING THE BIG ISSUE - SEPTEMBER VOGUE AS MUCH FOR THE ARTICLES AS THE FASHION. AT FASHION DESIGN SCHOOL I COULD GET LOST WORKING ON DRESS FORMS FOR HOURS.

 

TIME TO PLAY AGAIN. GIVEN THIS YEAR, IT FEELS LIKE DANCING IN BETWEEN THE RAINDROPS.
