Designer runway competition - The video

Work rythm is just coming back to normal... After London, I hopped to the East of France for a designer competition ! The idea was to show our collection, then a creation specifically designed for the competition, on the theme of nature, respect of the environment...

I chose to make a dress with recycled materials - which is not new in my work, I love reusing old materials to make new garments...
I met many friendly people, and saw a lot of beautiful designs!

The good news is, my design won the competition ;-)
Here is the video below - with the music especially created for the show !

London Fashion Week - Sept 18th, 2010

Back in Paris.. With a few pictures of the MALAM collection that was shown on sept 18th :)

I was lucky to work with lovely models and assistants! I'll post a few pictures of the backstage next time :)

Outfits looked great with the EJECT shoes (which models were relieved to wear after stilettos from the previous shows ;-) ) and hair accessories (flower pins and fascinators) from French jewelry designer Hélène Delacour.
The music had been created especially for the show, by The Underemployed, you can listen to it on their MySpace page ...

I'll post the video when I have it ! (I am quite impatient, especially as I have not seen the show myself, being in the backstage... ;)

In the meanwhile, you can see some of the other outfits on here :)

Hello friends! Let me introduce you to the jewellery creations of a lovely lady: Hélène Delacour.
Her necklaces, bracelets, earrings, all live in a romantic and poetic world where Swarovski pearls are knitted into threads, and ornated with flowers, butterflies and cameos...Here, a necklace in my favorite color ;-)
(I have a similar one, but shorter, with a cameo, and love it!!)
worn with a MALAM reversible dress:)

And this one below , also in black - with a little handsewn Fascinator - I bought a similar one, with a rose and chains ^^ worn with a MALAM Steampunk Sleeveless Jacket

And a spring-summer edition... So cute ;)

You'll find her creations on her website, or on her online shop.
