It seems like every time I have a reason to go to Mapleton, I drive past this barn and want to do a photo shoot there. So I finally did! This shoot not only features Natalie and her typewriter, but also our school desk that we got this summer from DI for a dollar. It has served us well. Also, props to Ryan for helping us lug stuff around and for dictating a story for Natalie to type on her typewriter.
This gallery contains 12 photos.
The beautiful Natalie is at it again.
I did it! Provo Fashion Week has been conquered.
It was quite the experience. I have grand plans in my head of writing a series of very detailed posts about the whole ordeal, from start to finish, but we will see if I ever have time to make that come to fruition. For now, a brief recap and some pictures will suffice.
For those of you who don’t know, I designed and sewed six full outfits (accessories included) for a local fashion show. That’s the summarized version. haha.
Before the models came out on the runway, the audience heard the intro to Circle of Life, which automatically triggered a feeling of anticipation. As the music transitioned into Shakira’s Waka Waka (This Time for Africa), these two heartthrobs walked out.
Notice the reactions of the people in the audience. I was the only designer who had children models, and they definitely stole the show.
They didn’t want to hold hands at first, but they secretly loved it.
This super star wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up.
Funny story. Those shorts were made for me, a 20-year-old girl. He is a 10-year-old boy. Also, he rolled his eyes the whole time on the runway. haha.
My favorite ensemble in my collection.
This one doesn’t have anything to do with Africa, but I really wanted to make a tulle skirt.
And that is my collection!
This is my roommate Natalie. She loves America. And she owns a typewriter from the 70s. What more could you want?
She is also one of my models for the upcoming Provo Fashion Week. See her rocking one of my outfits on February 27th at 7:30 pm in the Provo City Library! [Tickets are available here.]
