Waiting to be dressed…

bjd1-peony-coll-amg-doll-12

My lady is waiting to be dressed, but right now, I am attacking for a first fitting where I made many alterations! A second and perhaps even a third fitting will be required to offer a perfect garment that will gorgeously hang well with a nice silhouette. I’ll be back with more photos on my fittings. Have a nice day everyone!

Ma demoiselle est en attente d’être habillée, mais en ce moment, je m’attaque à un premier essayage d’où j’effectue de nombreuses altérations! Un second et peut-être même, un troisième essayage, sera nécessaire pour offrir un vêtement impeccable avec une magnifique tombé et silhouette. Je vous reviendrai avec d’autres photos sur mes essayages. Bonne journée à tous!

This will be my last quote focused on love and it will also be the last one for my dear Adele. It is now time for me to move on with another doll. A few pictures will be posted soon. For now, I will take a few days off for vacation. Have a nice week and have fun!

More ethnic fashion drawing…

When I have time, most of my favorite design sketches are drawn in color and the design comes almost “alive”! From this moment, I feel so excited that I can’t barely help myself on moving to the next steps: testing fabric, molding, making patterns, do the fitting, making pattern corrections, sewing, etc.

More Ethnic Fashion Sketches

Normally, when I draw a fashion outfit, I use a 5,5″ x 8,5″ (13,9 cm x 21,6 cm) sketch book and if I like the design, I will draw it again in the actual size of the doll, however by using an 18″ x 22″ (45,7 cm x 56 cm) sketch book. This method helps me to incorporate all of the tiny details that I want to see on each outfit and to store all information that I need in classified records.

Where are the ethnic fashion designs?

Good morning everyone! Recently, I have been asked the following question : Where are the ethnic fashion designs? We are waiting to see them! Actually, I’ve been working on them for more than a year now! My biggest problem was to decide which ethnic design I would started with. There were way too many to choose from: Afghanistan, Morocco, Senegal, India, China, Kenya, Russia…and the list goes on and on and on! Good lord, since I have textiles books from each of these countries, I simply couldn’t decided myself…I love them all! Many of these countries have a rich textile history, tradition and techniques that set each them apart. Many of these textiles have a strong ritualistic and ceremonial signification, such as festivals and weddings, but also, they are a self expression for statue and identity. Also, most of these gorgeous ethnic designs are created in laborious handmade techniques and craftsmanship that today’s industrial society have lost, which I find so sad!

Of course, some of you may say that many Parisian powerful houses are still maintaining these rigorous techniques, where most of them are executed by hand with the highest standards of la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture. In fact, all Haute Couture’s outfits are meticulously constructed by hand from start to finish, made from expensive and often unusual fabrics. They are sown with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and gifted sewers.

Needless to say, in my opinion, nothing comes close to traditional ethnic designs and textiles, because they do not followed any trends like modern fashion does. Anyway, after deep reflection, I finally came up with a decision, I will go on with North American Native designs, from the United States, Mexico, Guatemala and of course from Canada! For me, there are no better way to start with something that I know. Also, it is a good approach to show some respect, on my part, to First Nations and to celebrate are beautiful land!

All the following sketches are not final and are just a quick mix of cosmopolitan ideas inspired from Native Indian design. Thanks for watching!

Rachelle part 2

Hello everyone! For tonight post, I present the second and last part of Rachelle fully painted and blushed. As you have may notice, Rachelle’s body is more athletic and toned, which I really do like. In real life, I love variety though my aesthetic do not change that much.
