ORIENT

Not only is my friend Sammi the designer behind the super cool jewellery label Chase Dakota, she is also a super talented fashion design student. Recently Tasfia modelled Sammi's final presentation piece as you can see below. Sammi's piece is inspired by a movie filmed in Old Shanghai called 'Bodyguards and Assassins'  so it is  kind of an East meets West inspired piece. The femininity of the kimono sleeves is balanced with more boxy silhouette of the jacket body - so cool! :o Oh and how amazing is the embroidery on the leather sleeves!? I want! xxxxx PhotobucketPhotobucketIMG_8134PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

  6. I'm not usually impressed by clothes designs (because they're all usually the same thing) but this friend of yours is really talented. I mean, the kimono sleeves, the embroideries on leather... epic.
