New York Fashion Week is upon us. And while I get a bit disgusted with the fact that more attention is often paid to the people sitting in the front row than the actual clothing these days, runway collections are definitely a great starting point to find sewing inspiration.
I thought I would share a few of my favorite haute couture designs in honor of Sewing Indie Month and the Dressed to the Nines sew-a-long contest.
For pure fashion fantasy, it just doesn't get much better than this!
The garments may not be very practical, but they are certainly gorgeous. And the details are just to die for!
In my opinion, everyone needs a velvet robe with train to swan about in the hydrangea garden.
If you do not have your own estate filled with floral delights, you can always wear them on your dress.
Molding a flower out of fabric is another option.
If florals are not your style, how about a two piece ensemble complete with pockets. (Oh how i would love to study the interior of that top!)
If I ever get my hands on twenty or more yards of gorgeous fabric, this is what I plan on doing with it!
Because every girl needs a ball gown (and the opportunity to wear one)!
