I am currently working on a 10 piece collection for Omaha Fashion Week - August 2015. I haven't done a collection for a couple of years, and I thought when I quit teaching full time that I would be too busy to do another one. I got a position teaching summer school for 4 weeks, so luckily that gives me a summer salary, so now I have about 4-5 weeks to create a collection. Not a lot of time, but I am going to "make it work".
I scheduled it out and it's about 2 1/2 days per garment, but now I've been working for a week and half and am just finishing the first (but have a couple more about half way done, waiting in the wings).
I decided to do the entire collection from denim, using the experimental bleaching / dyeing / handpainting that I've been working on for the past year or so.
The denim will be indigo shades of course, but also white, black and dyed pink. The inspiration for styling / silhouettes is Marie Antoinette / Rococo period. Nothing super historically accurate - just a general idea about shapes, etc.
