My Tribute to Christian Dior

IMG_9549 IMG_9552 IMG_9553

All finished…I had an amazing time creating this little gem.

While working on this project, I couldn’t help but wonder what it must have been like to work along side the millinery artists that created the wonderful works of the Robe Miss Dior collections, I think I need to plan a trip to Paris!!

Now I wonder if I should design a life size version for me to wear!

I hope you like the little dress, as much as I do..

A Package From Australia

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a package from Australia and today it arrived!!! What is it, you ask?

Well…. what’s your best guess?

Did you guess vintage textile tools? If so, GREAT! If your saying vintage textile tools what’s that? Well…..

This box of tools will allow me to finally plunge into my box of vintage velvets, silks, sateens and organzas to begin designing and creating my own flowers for Love Anabelle designs!!!! These vintage tools are becoming difficult to locate and remember, I was awaiting the package arrival all the way from Australia!

These tools are heated then applied to fabrics allowing the sculpting and molding process to begin. In the near future I will be traveling to Atlanta to learn from one of the industries leader and hopefully begin to put these wonderful old tools to use again.
