Fun Jacket

This is a custom for my friend Le-Vy. However, I could not resist trying it on and having a quick mini photoshoot! And I LOVE my new oversized measuring tape (Thanks Miss Indigo Blue). Now my waist is only 4 inches!

Wondergirls: an adorable Korean pop music group

Look at how ridiculously cute they are!


Now all I want for spring are color block dresses, jewel tone tights, and patent leather shoes!

I've custom made this dress for a few different folks now. Every time, I love it more.

Here's how it looks in other colors:
(For Lost in Space, on Stella Rose. In red and ivory)

(In black and pink, quick camera pic for client)

Shoulder piece snaps off (so you're able to get a coat on and off). And can also be worn in a few different ways. Optional hat.

You can custom order one too!
Check out all these amazing colors (Duchess Satin):

Bjork is so Gangsta

I'm loving this E-40 song "Spend the Night" which samples Bjork's Medulla album. It's pretty awesome. I heart you Bjork, you're still my number 1.

Lost in Space Detailed Costume Credits: COMING SOON

For those of you interested in reading more about the costumes for Lost in Space, hold tight. I have the complete detailed list coming as soon as the run is over (don't want to spoil the fun for those who haven't seen the show yet.)

I am pleased to say that the Von Stratton label created roughly 43 total looks for this production. Which include the interior garments for a performers act.

That ain't bad in a 2 month time frame! I'd like to see how I'd take on Fashion Week if given 6 months. :-D
