I have something very exciting to tell. Some of you may already know it but I'm going to tell it anyway. This 'Big' thing has by the way also been the reason why I haven't posted anything for a while.
I have been selected to compeat in a fashion design competition with 17 other designers. I'm the youngest one and I have the least experience wich makes me a bit nervous but I am also really, really, excited!
We have to design and make four catwalk outfits. I've decided to go with a lot of pastel colours, flowers and some Barbie dolls. I'm not going to tell nor show you what it will look like because I want to keep it a surprise and I also haven't finished yet. I have chosen four friends who will be my models and they are going to show it on the 24th of November.
A few weeks ago, We (all the designers) were invited to follow a masterclass, where loads of interesting people told a lot of very usefull information. That was also the day we got to meet all of our 'rivals'. Every single one of them has soo much talent! And all of them are already studing at designing academics or art schools and stuff like that. And then there is me. The sixteen year old girl from the tiniest village ever who is still in High school and tought herself how to sew. I think this competition is going to be very interesting! haha. But this doesn't stop me to try as hard as I possibly can to reach the level of the others.
I'm working very hard every day to be finished by the 24th of Novermber, wich is already a challenge itself. But anyway hopefully I will reach my goals and end not as last.
Here are a few pictures to give you an idea where I'm talking about and here is the link to an interview (wich is in dutch, but you can translate it ;) )
