denier & manera spring/summer 2011 - the lambent entranda

It's been a few weeks after the show and I finally have the time to sit down and actually look back at the entire experience closely. Thanks to all the photographers (those that I know and those that I do not know) that posted on their blogs or facebook. I've right clicked on a lot of the images, and if you happen to see this and not want me to use your images, let me know and I'll take them down. Overall, I was quite proud with myself considering this was my first fashion show. I would've wanted to spend a lot more time on actually making the clothes rather than just sitting there in front of my sewing machine just day-dreaming about the future and whatsoever.
I was inspired by the architectures of Ando Tadao, the lines and shapes of his architectures are a big part of the fundamental elements for this collection. I always knew that I wanted to design clothes that are visually interesting and have an air of avant garde but still wearable and easily incoporated into people's already-existing closet. So this is my first ever collection of 14 looks. All items of clothing are made by me. All accesories and shoes (some were models' own) were purchased in Value Village.
