DEE-constructed

I was always such a fashion fanatic, but after I started to learn the craft of sewing I realized just how hard is to make a wearable piece of clothing. Since then I have much more appreciation for “behind the scenes” work which takes in designing and making our everyday outfits.

Designing is a 3D art, and you have to be careful how will your design look from different corners. Technology today allows designers to make gravity defying clothes, with new material and sewing machines coming along every day.

I adore Dior haute couture constructed gowns from the 40s and futuristic fashion of the 60s, where construction became an important element of design.

Hope you’ll enjoy some of my favorites, along with new pics taken by Miss Stela 🙂 !
