I am coming up with a fab new nooni project featuring fab female artists. And the first Nooninoos lovechild is called Bruninoo by Bru of Electrolychee and sewn by me.
Bruninoo has a mix of lovely vintage and new lace details at the back.
The front is completely hand embroidered and hand painted by Bru.
Bruninoo is currently displayed at Bernie's 4th Solo Exhibit, Pablo Gallery in Cubao X until January 2010.
THIS PIECE HAS JUST BEEN SOLD.
Send me a message for more info or orders.

I find that it's easier to decide what to wear when you've pinned down the look that you're going for. And what better guide than the fab ladies who are known for their fashion sense? The next step, of course, would be that you add your personal touch (we don't want to get costume-y now, do we?). It could be through accessories like wearing chains instead of pearls; a splash of color onto an otherwise monochromatic look; or even make-up.
Sometimes, I even think of a specific person for a specific occasion. Meeting the boyfriend's parents? I usually go for the classics like Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, Grace Kelly, Jean Pratchett--chic yet elegant. Consider the time of day and venue of course. Like pick "casual Audrey" for a lunch date with his parents, versus the iconic "Breakfast-at-Tiffany's-Audrey".
Going to a fun, laid-back party? I'd choose the carefree, fun-loving ladies like Anna Karina, Edie Sedgwick, Francoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot or Blondie (but she's more gig-specific).
A "chi-chi" event? I say Louise Brooks. But that's just me though, 'cause I'm an old-fashioned gal.
So my question now is, who are your fashion icons?

My friend (who also cut my fabulous new hair) offered to take photos of me and my headpieces. She has a kick-ass old-school large format camera (Gundlach 5x7 large format camera) and took some rockin' photos. Here's one of them :)

Been focusing on my hats so much that I miss making patchwork pieces.
So, you can imagine how excited I was when my cousin asked for a beach-themed patchwork for her future baby boy.
These are 4 separate pieces sewn by hand. Hope you like it Ching!

The head piece would be the major challenge in making this costume.
I don't know if I can do it. But I WANT to wear this!
Who wouldn't want to be draped in feathers?
