COC Photo Challenge #1
Stripes with flowers. Gold metal twill alongside jewels and trinkets. Silk satin, mirrors, stones, ceramic, glass tube beads....all of this and more makes up Maison Martin Mariela's latest called, "Artisanal."
In this Haute Couture Spring 2014 Collection, Maison is a natural at combining different patterned fabrics giving them complete symmetry. It is not an easy task and for that he has my true admiration.
Inspired, I gave it a go by pairing a bold printed overcoat with glitter striped pants and a flowered bodysuit. I loved the look of his Embroidered “Clin d'oeil” Evening Gloves (which took 18 hours to make, by the way), but wasn't satisfied with how anything with similar style transferred over inworld. So, I simulated the look with my own hair -- Bushy and stringy without all the fuss. Lastly, I adorned my feet with gold ankle boots and with a touch of "Zoom Zoom" I wrapped a bold orange scarf around my neck bringing out that same color in the coat.
Maison Martin is a great way to begin Colour of Couture and I, for one, cannot wait until the next challenge!
