Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dresses
Shabby Apple is a beautiful online dress boutique which offers woman's apparel from skirts to dresses. Their new line, 'travel the silk road' has just been released for sale on the website and the whole collection is wonderful.
Currently, they are having a 'dare to design' competition where they are asking people to design a dress for next year's Spring collection. Being a huge fan of fashion and having the desire to be a fashion designer, this was a perfect opportunity to dabble into the design world.
Springtime is all about a new beginning. The flowers are starting to bloom. All the bright and fresh colors are coming out. The winter blues are fading away what more do you need to get you into the season than a bright, floral dress? The Spring 2011 fashion collections brought us a mixture of bright, fresh colors, flowing dresses and detailed floral accents.
I wanted to bring all this together in my design with gathered coral satin fabric, a feminine pink satin ribbon belt and coral and pink chiffon pearl studded flowers. All this makes for the perfect 'in full bloom' spring dress.
|The Dress: gathered coral satin|
|The details: chiffon pearl studded flowers, layered ribbon belt, and gathered satin bodice and hem.|
The competition ends October 15th at 11:59pm EST and the top 15 entries will be posted on Shabby Apple's blog by October 22nd, 2010. From October 22nd to November 22nd blog readers will be able to vote for their favorite dress.
