My sports wear inspiration was a tennis dress. My young niece has been tearing up the courts down in Texas and I have promised her I would make her first Wimbledon dress; so my research stood me in good stead for this challenge.
My concept is that of a cocktail/party dress with clean lines and a bit of a flirty skirt. I used a OOAK hand-painted white stretch satin and broomstick-washed silk dupioni in an accent color. I bag lined the dress with a nude tricot knit.
My choice for Iconic Video Game Avatar is Princess Toadstool/Princess Peach of Mario Bros Fame. I am not huge on the video game world, but remember this entire Nintendo series from my kids' gamer days :>
Basing my design on the overdress of her look, I used a luscious raspberry faux suede for the one-shouldered coat-dress, lined in pale pink silk charmeuse. I created the black stockings using a simple mesh. The clutch is shirred dupioni in the Princess' signature turquoise blue color and her necklace is based on her traditional piece as well. I added a heavy mixed semi-precious stone wire bracelet.
I was inspired in my design by Anthony Vacarello's 2012 Fall line, as well as elements of Dinh Ba's Fall line.
