Have you heard the news about the Grand Opening of the Project Run & Play Shop? It's an exclusive shop where you can shop the patterns created by past designers used during their season of Project Run & Play! Isn't that cool?! (keep your eyes peeled for some Sew Chibi Patterns popping up in the shop come Fall/Winter 2018!) To commemorate, Audrey is hosting a past designers blog tour! I choose to do the Moto Jacket by A Jennuine Life in a variety of basic color box colored vinyls and other fabrics to make a bold statement piece for my rapidly growing, almost 11 year old 😱😭.
Excited to finally share this week's Stripes themed looks! Of all the challenges this season, I think I was most anticipating this one because it gave me a chance to change my perspective on something we see every day! Each week, I wanted to try out different moods: the first week was a bit moody and French, last week was super girly and cute, and this week it's about cool, idol-inspired fashion... but for girls! Always a fan of the series, "Boys Can Wear Pink", I thought about how to do something that would have a similar message, but for girls! It's empowering for them to see themselves in hip, urban streetwear in addition to the pretty dresses because it gives them a chance to appreciate different facets of what makes them awesome individuals! For motivation, while designing my stripes looks, I watched what I watch a lot of every day: Asian pop music videos, especially those from Taiwan and Japan! Paired up with my longtime love of optical illusions, I created fashion for my girls that they could wear on a summery Friday night, hanging out with friends in the city, playing vintage video games at the arcade, then catching a movie at one of the retro theaters nearby.
