Thanks to Chris and Steph for making this happen.

Final garments and more...

Just a quick visual update on what's been happening in the studio:

the Galaxy Skirt in flat form...
and almost finished... (note, no stitching seen on the outside, check out that clean hem!)

Some experimenting with aquaseal - a special contact adhesive used to repair wetsuits...
I'm using aquaseal to attach the zips in my garments.
a sneak peek at what's to come with the Lunar Shirt...
and another before and after shot of the Zero Gravity skirt in lavender neoprene....dreamy!

Printed mesh for the pleated pants...
Swarovski moons and stars... to be made into zipper pulls (like a bejeweled wetsuit!)

they are so perfect!
And finally, some external pastel influence in my life :)

head above water

With all the collection sampling and final garment constructing, I have found it refreshing to look elsewhere for a creative boost... stepping out of my own bubble for a few moments I came across some amazing artwork by Eibatova Karina - a Russian artist (illustration/fine art).

And more...  a New York based womenswear surf label Pret-a-surf, creating surf attire with a refreshing angle - no boring or embarrassing rashies here! Working with neoprene and mesh in my final collection has tripled my fondness for stretch garments.

Final collection board

This is it, no more design 'adjustments'. With only 2 months to go, and with all my sample garments completed it's time to move on with final garments. Very exciting! Below is my finalised collection board (illustrations to be improved for my portfolio) and a closer look the individual outfits that make up my collection. (The blank areas of the design illustrations indicate print, yet to be illustrated).

Fleet and Lunar Lingerie

The Fleet Store was featured in the Sunday Mail on the weekend... exciting! (That's my blue neoprene circle skirt on the middle left)

Quick studio update: I have been sampling some thigh-high stockings, realising the necessity of a back seam is not such a bad thing. In fact, I really like back-seam stockings. Here is a rough toile below to figure out the construction... the final pair will be in stretch mesh (nurturing my current 'obmeshion') with a band of pastel and white stars circling the upper thigh. Pictures of the final product coming soon!
