Hi I'm Tamarah ( pronounce Ta- mare- Ah). My blog consists of work (assignments),
thoughts & crazy things that went on in my life at the end of my Fashion Design education. Sometimes it's just random things. Okay a lot of the times. Questions are encouraged.

Bridal Spring 2015 Fashion Week- A recap

Ahh! No better feeling than a clean carpet under your feet. We had the choice of paint touch up or carpet cleaning for renewing our lease. We chose the latter. It’s almost been three years since we moved in.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail; Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end, Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.

Evening Dress
Madame Grès
1967
The collections of Madame Grès were prized for the pleated silk jersey gowns that ended each of her shows. With their himation-like draped swags, these designs are a relaxed version of the fine dense pleating that generally covers her fitted, highly structured bodices. The technical virtuosity incorporated in the draping is revealed only on close study of this example. The swags are both continuous and unbroken panels of fabric that incorporate the right fronts and backs of the gown. In her neoclassicism, Grès conformed to the antique notion of uninterrupted lengths of cloth, stitched but not cut into shape. From her earliest work, Grès introduced windows onto the body with cutouts that bared the back and midriff. She created a fissured shoulder, consistent with her own practice and resonant of the split shoulderlines of antique chitons.

I see I have a few new readers (don’t really say followers) so I wanted to say hello & welcome virtual waves. This blog started out with me posting my adventures as a fashion design student,but now I post my post grad musings. Sometimes it’s just random things (family, quotes and etc.). Enjoy and thanks to those who have stuck around.
