Parlour Shoot

This weekend the photoshoot for Parlour's Creme De La Creme took place. I feel honoured that I was able to be involved, featured as 1 of 10 Albertan designer breaking out in the local industry. Such a lovely day, hanging out with fellow designers; making connections and having fun.
The dress I made was inspired by mid-century fashion, very Jackie O! You cannot see here but the train on the back of the gown was 1.5 meters of pleated fabric with netting underneath. The model, Court Baker- based out of Mode Edmonton was fantastic. A slight bump in the road, as the dress was too small, I managed to corset her up with some safety pins and a shoelace- graciously provided my one of the male models. I love having that pressure on when you only have a certain amount of time and it all comes down to practical problem solving!
The energy on set was fantastic, I feel blessed to be getting started in this line of work. This was a great experience before my big move, I am so excited to head to the big apple!!!
