"when it feels like home..."

After I got home form my try out, I felt miserable. I think everybody experienced such a thing. I had to clear my head and start think about my next step to figure out: What is going to be? What should I do with my life?  So I arranged a trip to my grandparents house. They past away several years ago, but that house is close to my heart. Every time I visit that place, I change, helps me a lot to find my self. It felt like home. 

Every day I took a stroll and I did some pictures which I think are inspiring. Also I did some designs based on those pictures.

My First look was inspired by the panorama: For this look I was thinking to create an overall with a print on the front. I want to reflect the winter on these looks so I decided to add sparkly thermal stones and glitter on the garments.

My next look is base on the show: It's a glitter skirt which reflects the snow surface.

This look is based on some reed. I liked the puffiness of the "flower" and I imagined a nice puff skirt with a nice chic upper part and some stones on it. It's a soft look but also reflects the winter.  

This look was inspired by the sad forest from the village border. When you see a forest in the winter they are simply trees but when you look closely you can see a fabric texture in it. Based on this texture I created this look.

My last look its based on the snow surface. You can see how the light and shadow goes together by creating this nice texture. I waned to use this style on a jacket.   

I hope you got inspired and you can use this ideas next winter.

So much for my happy ending...

One door closes, another opens…

I finished my drawings which I needed for the second part of the interview and guess what?...They called me after 3 hours and told me that my design and technical skills aren't good enough. Yeah…I felt like shit…I worked my ass off for this one and they didn't pay me anything… Probably they will use my design but what can I do? Someone told me that “fashion life is a bitch you need to be a bigger one to survive”. After a few months I have to admit that she was right.

Anyway my friend tried to cheer me up by the text: “one door closes, another opens”…I hope he’s right cuz I listened.  I moved back home after 3 weeks, my flat mates aren't happy about it, I miss them already but my life needs to go on. Don’t ever stop if you see a problem, resolve it, if you can’t put it away and fix it later, is that simple…

I need to start to rethink my future and reopen my atelier get more tools. This time I want to concentrate on the sales and get more clients/ collaboration … It’s time to take my work to another level.

Have a nice weekend :D!

My first sketches

"When life is hard 
do it harder, because it will make you feel alive..."

In my last post I told you about my little life story what I'm having at Cluj. A lot of my friends asking about me, but to be honest I don't really have time so I decided to write about it. 

My last interview was a nightmare. I promised to my self, I wont be a sewer ever again. When I entered to the factory and I saw the machine line up and everybody was sitting and sewing, I remember that feeling and frustration what I had last year. The good thing about this factory wast that everybody had to do a garment from the start... There was no fazes of sewing, just full dresses. I would learn a lot  from there and I felt comfortable about the idea. When the master gave me a coat to sew from the start, I was smiling because I did the same model for one of my models before Christmas. She started asking me about my work experience and study. When I told her about my six years of university she got weird with me, and when I told her about the engineering part she freaked out. After three hour I was "kicked out". I didn't understand why. I felt like a fool about the situation and I called my brother and he was so sweet. He told me: "when you get up on a full bus everybody will look ugly at you, but if you wait 2 stations those people will get off the buss and you will stand there" ...I realized no matter how hard I try to be friends whit people who are working in production at a factory I always will be an outsider especially if I have more school then the master.

When I got "home" on that day I decided to go home where I came from but my roommate helped me out and he got me a job offer as a designer. I had to do 5 sketches, 1 technical paper and 1 pattern calculation from one of my design.  

To be honest I don't do sketches, these are my third once...Before I started designing I got this video which is really helpful and I wanted to share with you...

These are the occasional dresses design:

Ready to wear garment design:

I hope you like it. I'm open to any opinion :)

Hello there!This week`s topic is nothing else, than the famous fashion week in London and within it, Christopher Bailey's Trench Kisses for +Burberry . The first thing that popps into my mind when I hear the word “burberry” is: luxury fashion’s frontrunner in social media’.
Burberry`s title for the autumn / winter 2013 show is titled ‘Trench Kisses’ Bailey specializes in classics with modern twists and he delivered on that promise here. His trench coats, the backbone of his collections, were updated for Fall with sleeves in leopard or thick, translucent rubber and accented with strips of polished metal. Skirts, jackets, and several bags were covered with little strips of leather attached by grommets. Designers used other decorations such as bold stripes and oversize graphic animal prints like giraffe or cowhide.
With silhouettes inspired by the era, including cute fitted trenches with slim gold belts and contrast storm flaps, and animal-print wedge kitten heels with gold buckles, the house embraced its animal side in a big way. Key looks included a ribbed beige sweater tucked into a pencil skirt in horizontal strips of leopard print in two different sizes, accessorized with a slim gold metal belt, and a glossy oxblood snakeskin jacket.

Things got a bit tricky at times, with fashion ruling over function for the most part, save for a few pure coats - namely a cashmere double-breasted camel style. Animal prints and heart shapes were strongly represented in just about every look via leopard, jaguar and giraffe motifs. Burberry also followed suit with most collections this season with dominating metal accessories and leather worked pieces. I strongly recommend this brand, it's one of my favorites because it's very classy and simple. Anyone can look fabulous in this clothes but my favorites from this collection are the one that have heart shapes as you can see on my drawing.I hope you enjoyed it and don't forget to keep on track with other new trends.

Style your wordrobe!

Hey guys! It's Autumn time again. Its time for you to pick out the cardigans, sweaters and boots from the dustiest corners of your closet. Or you know what? I've got a better idea: let's refresh your wardrobe with H&M-s new collection! The theme of the collection is clearly elegant and black.

Most of the dresses and costumes have long slender figures, towering skinny either leather or embroidered material. Before you`d think that this is a dark and gothic invasion, H&M flavors are only chic. In addition to long boots , which are decorated with at infinity– pilots –with leather trim and embroidery are also very important parts of this look book. Hoods or fedora hats are also in, black, always, as well as jackets that provide or simulate air . The H & M look book Fall gives you the perfect opportunity to be a real lady from head to toe and sweep everyone off their feet!  

The collection is much more polished than in previous years, many more compilation of classic elegance and minimalist style represented this year and the color is dark and the autumn hues dominate most. Most of the samples are shown in two panels, we find a few interesting, more interesting pieces, the pants are a classic pencil style this year."When we started thinking about this collection we talked about drama – a kind of modern drama," said Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of design at H&M, during a preview of the collection.   

The style of garments shown retail at similar prices to the normal H&M range, except for some of the showier pieces – made from slightly more expensive fabrics – such as the black wool flared miniskirt with embroidery and a black velvet cape featuring epaulettes. Similar attention to detail elevated other pieces, such as the black wool cropped peacoat, finished with a vintage cuff, and the grungy long black bias-cut dress.

 I hope you liked it, stay tuned for the new post. If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to comment. I wish you a lovely day. :)
