The Dress - Canvas Corp Brands


Today I share a project made for a Canvas Corp Crew challenge. The assignment was to be inspired by a designer. I chose to go with a clothes designer and ended up documenting my wedding dress which I designed myself. 

I'm not sure if you already now but I studied clothes design back in the day. While in the polytechnic I got a book about John Galliano and was so inspired by the sketches in the book. His drawings were very influential to my style to draw sketches of clothes. So when I read the challenge I immediately thought to go with a clothes designer rather than one in the craft industry. I reached for Galliano book and drew inspiration of a picture of his journal for a collection. Loved the different fabric swatches in his journal, the small sketches and details.

Then came the next part - what to do. As I was going for the clothes way anyway I decided to document my own wedding dress as I haven't done that before. I dig up my original sketch, some of the inspiration pictures and even found some fabric swatches to go with them. We were wed in February so the dress was made out of wool satin and had a removable fake fur collar. 

Great walk down the memory lane with this one! Thank you for stopping by!
