Aloha Madomoiselles and Gentlemen. I will be completely honest with you all - I had absoluetly no idea what to blog about this week. Work has been crazy busy and inspirations are running thin. So today I thought I'd give you the inside info on my sweet boutique and exciting things that you can look forward to very soon.
If you don't already know my name is Lilli, I run my own boutique online Inescapable and have a passion for uniqueness, creativity and fashion. Don't be mislead when I say fashion, I don't mean the bright shiney lights of hollywood, flashiong lights and people who are so botoxed they dribble when they speak. I'm not a fan of the fake, but I am a fan of the design and creativity of modern designers like Alexander Mcqueen, but I also love historical fashion and turning art into clothing and vice versa. Being a huge geek I am sort of obsessed with costuming and character design. You can check out my Illustrating Tutorial here. Below are some inspirations for this week.
I am currently saving up to get an apple laptop with photoshop and illustrator so I can clean up my artwork and present it beautifully. I've been working on some standard designs and costume designs aswell which I will give you a sneak peak at ;)
Mega exciting news!
As for my boutique I will be having a stall at the Gold Coast Car Show + Retro Rock 'n Roll Night. Make sure you come visit me! I'm also planning a photoshoot there to show off some new designs including mens shirts and ladies dresses!
Some inspirational people that have really given me a boost this week are Alex Beadon and Leilani Joy. Alex has fantastic advice on how to be your own boss and start working for yourself. If you are thinking of starting your buisness then I encourage you to just go for it!! and check out her videos. Leilani Joy is an artist, I love her positive, creative attitude and her artwork is right up my alley. She inspired me to get out my pencils this week.
My character of the week is Ramona Flowers. I love her attitude, her hair, unique style and her name. I have about the equivelent amount of teas in my cupboard but I wish I had her steampunk goggles. Shes the cats pajamas of the alternative girl and full of confident insecurities.
What have you been up to this week? and are there any inspirations you'd like to share? Please leave your wonderful comments below. Have a beautiful weekend!
