Design Festa

The Design Festa was on Saturday and yet again it was a lot of fun! December's Design Festa is always a little smaller that the one in May but still just as good. This time around I changed the set up of my booth. I used a table and put plastic bags inside my bags so the would stand up, rather than hang from a hook (which is what I did in May this year). The booth looked a lot better than it did in May.

There were many people interested in my bags but no buyers as expected. I learned from May's Design Festa that the people that go there are just looking, spending money on small things like postcards.

Fashion and design is amazing. I really love it. During the past 12 months I have really learned a lot about fashion and the importance of not giving up, staying positive and keeping fresh. Another thing about fashion is that designers often have breaks to reflect on their past work and come back even stronger. And that is what I have decieded to do.

I am going to take a break from TOTE and develop my skills. I want to work on fashion drawing, using photoshop and extending what I can make. So rather than making things to sell I will be making things for myself. I will continue to blog but not here as TOTE. I am not sure how often I will post either, but I will leave a link up here when it happens. However if anyone is intersted in buying what I make then they can.

So, so long for now.

On break

Yeah it has been a while since I have last posted. I have been busy studying for my Japanese test which is the day after the Design Festa so that's why I have not posted anything. Here is another t-shirt that I finished yesterday.

Casual Shirt

I like buying recycled clothes and turning them into something new. Yesterday I picked up this shirt from a store, took it home, added a big splash of creativity and came out with this. At firsty I wasn't too happy with it. Today I put it on again and changed my mind. I was very happy with the results.

Scarf: Soon to be on etsy


I just finished watching Madonna's JUMP video clip filmed in Tokyo. Usually her outfits are fantastic however this time she has chosen to use clothes that can be bought in Harajuku. The clothes still look cool, but I think she needed some Harajuku style make up to match the outfit.
