BreastLift

_DSC9514

Inspired by YSL’s gold breast plates, and modern day breast lifts by the knife, I decided I’d take some time out to mold untreated, un-dyed leather. The molding process only works if the leather is at least 1/4” thick. I used a severed mannequin as a base for molding the leather into its …

Memorabilia

_DSC7312

Michael Jackson. It would be redundant of me to write out his achievements. We all have a different memory of him. What I find flawed about mass produced memorabilia is that each of our memories of him are unique, and as such Memorabilia should be unique. Some prefer the child Michael Jackson …

Parody

Luxirare Garment Rack

YSL Tributes and Luscious cut out wedge Or..just maybe I was subconsciously influenced by the 70′s Jackson 5. Little Michael Jackson = Mozart with a fro. I realize the look I’ve presented above is not appropriate for any daily activity. To avoid looking like a sequined trash bin, keep the fur jacket “casual” and …

Crop Tops

Margiela Sequin Blazer Back View

I wanted to design an outfit to compliment this sequined blazer depicted in the pictures above (by one of my fave designers, Margiela), and it was actually tough to come up with something that goes with it, because the blazer is just so awkward and strange. I finally decided it would have to be something […]

Clown Town

Contrary to popular trends, I’m actually hardcore into ruffles. Christopher Kane’s ruffle collection was actually my favorite of his so far. I’m into looking at them, making them, and attaching them. Don’t ask me how many yards I used. I had to buy a whole roll (60 yards). Muslin. You can see its only half […]

Floating Fur

3380782317_90a5b08c41_o

I often get pigeon holed into an idea when I am going through the process of constructing a garment. Last year when I was working on my thesis I got obsessed with stitching together different fabrics together, i.e. patchwork. I experimented mainly with spandexy textures, as well as lace. These below are my first …

Laced Up

_DSC3377

Clothes; Long sleeve shirt + Lace up pants both by Luxirare. I used a washed silk for the long sleeve shirt and zipper teeth. Is this what your early twenties is supposed to feel like?? The only person you can depend on is yourself. The cross pendant is also something I put together with random […]

I love a nice fitting basic tee just like any other girl. I love lacy lingerie. I thought combining both would be practical for me. I used Black organza, black gridded organza, and nude silk for the lining. Forgive the slight wrinkles, I forgot to steam this before putting it on. Uniform: Luxirare t-shirt dress, […]

New Tricks

ME

You know what they say…More things change the more they stay the same…. Me circa late eighties/early nineties… Me now… Lately I have been wearing this same formulaic uniform. Very cliched and typical of people who dress to look “different” but really its less about being “different” and more about differential uniforms. Never understood the […]

INTRO

9-5, then 7-3. Lets start with 9-5 first. The best non-label label in the whole world. Now onto Luxirare’s invisible uniform. A simple shift dress with princess seams and a v-top stitch. This muslin may look easy but shift dresses with princess seams are actually one of the hardest things to fit. But then again, […]

Two Skins

NEW PICTURES 658 copy

Patchwork spandex connected with v stitch. Inspired by Margiela’s nude concepts and Kaisik Wong’s patchwork. Motorcycle style with zippers and mock pierced nipples. This is my favorite C.Kane dress ever. So easy to wear. The weather has been so sweet lately.
