It is amazing ,what you can find in the old archives!…I have discovered my very first collection that I made from Burlap and Silk yarn…as a 16-year-old student in design school.
The only cheap fabric that I could find was Brown Burlap (It is the material that potato sacks are made of), but since Brown is NOT my favorite color (at least for clothes)…I’ve bleached it and amazingly it turned into this soft, cream color fabric that was very pleasant to touch and had a silky sheen to it.
At that time I was also really into crocheting, so the only embellishment I have used was the crochet pieces from the silk yarn.
The shape inspiration for this collection was the Period of the Renaissance and The Mood was Falling in Love in the Springtime Paris…somehow made perfect sense for me at that time…
These pictures were my very first pictures taken with a professional camera with film. I was so excited!…I can’t find all the shots, but still happy to find these.
The scene was a rooftop of the hospital where my friend was working, I really liked the color of the stones and blue of the sky…
…Models were very sweet and were trying to help me as much as they could,
didn’t even mind smoking and drinking their soda, while sitting on the roof.
It still is my all time favorite collection…because it was the first and made with love 🙂
Till next time,
