Been working on this little dress for the past week now. Printing foxes is hard business! As the orange fabric paint I bought is not opaque like my white, I had to do multiple layers, 2 orange coats on top of 2 white coats for the base.
Plus a coat for the ears, a coat for the white of the face, and then dots for eyes and noses.
Definitely not as straight forward as my other projects!
The neck of this dress is a lot wider as well compared to my other dresses, almost off-shoulder but not quite. I gave it rather skinny sleeves as well.
This is the outcome of it!
I've also added a minute detail at the near-bottom of the dress. Not quite sure if you can see it in the photo. Quite a subtle fold to give the dress a bit more personality. I'm rather contemplative if I sh/would put this up for sale. It's a lot of work, but let's see the response to it!
There were some really good enjoyable dances in there. Top 2 fave dances are most certainly the interpretive dance, "Unsettled", and the engaging slam poetry + a loveable prototypical battle of classic versus hip hop, "Sunday Avenue Crew". Ending the evening off, Ty brought Jian and I to this sweet Japanese eatery down at Cuppage for some good o'fashioned tamago ramen and yaki gyoza for supper!
Saturday, we headed down to Uyii's launch. It's fantastic to see more local designers getting out there! A definitive change of scene in Singapore, and I'm liking where this is heading. No products shot of their line from me, but a few poor snaps of their studio!
A friend of theirs hand-drawn this mural and filled it in with black markers. How amazing does it look?
Also, that's the designer of Uyii's bags, Li Ping, munching on a cupcake by the left.
A couple of their other friends too, fashioned these furniture all on their own out of cardboard! The last time I was there, they were in the figuring-it-out-stage. Upon launch, all these were built! I'm thoroughly impressed!
Take a look at their side project too, Pipe Dreams. They aim to construct 100 whimsical cloud pillows through scraps of unwanted textiles. These cloud pillows really are a dream. Their craftsmanship is just stunning! I wish I had taken an individual snapshot of each cloud on display!
Still, the best element in the studio was this simple yet effective poster.
& an update! If you've been wondering where my website has gone too, the previous domain has expired and this is the new/current one! :)
