I love how to rigid structure of this dress is offset by the warm, soft look of this plummy colour. And I know this dress is going to look absolutely amazing going down the runway, the way the light catches this fabric simply can't be shown in a still photograph!

My favourite suit jacket from my last visit bought to life in a gorgeous two tone greys. Me and Peter were discussing how this looks like something Cruella Deville would wear....but in a good way. I especially love how the metallic thread in the darker grey perfectly highlights the lighter grey. It's little details like this that show how much thought and effort goes into these garments!

As you all know a little while back I was lucky enough to be invited to visit the Institue of Design Ulladulla and photograph their garments for the upcoming Schwarzkopf Gala Showcase for Hair Expo 2011. When I first went the team were only in the beginning phases of creating  what I know are going to be beautiful, stand out pieces. So when I went back for a second visit I was delighted to see two of my favourite garments nearly completed! 
The two garments pictured above are part of just one of the concepts that are being bought to life by the students at IDU and I cannot wait to see what else they come up with!

One thing I have noticed about myself from these two visits is that I have a tendancy to compare real life garments to something a fictional character would wear...what does that say about my personality?
