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 πŸ™‚ !

Pop Art stole my heart

Today is a rather special day! Besides the fact that today is the first day of Spring, there is one other small fact –Β  this is my 30th post, hooray πŸ™‚ ! One of the main goals when I started to do this blog (besides showing you my obsession with Desigual πŸ˜‰ ), was to show some of the amazing Croatian designers. Croatia is a a rather small country, but artistic talent here is huge, in my humble opinion πŸ™‚ !

I love this skirt by very talented Croatian designer Zoran Aragovic from Bite My Style fashion design, and she inspired me for today’s topic – Pop Art, and it’s neverending influence in fashion and design. I love my clothes to be colorful and bold, and this outfit doesn’t fail me in that department – hope you’ll enjoy it!
