Embellished Collar D.I.Y
Getting back into the swing of Uni after having a year out to be immersed in the Fashion Industry and 'find my self along with my individual design style'. I have been really interested in different styles of detachable collars and how they can be cut and decorated. This is a collar I made using a basic shirt collar pattern taking inspiration from Paul Smith, lining the inside of the neck with a monochrome floral. I wanted a collar that I could wear with a basic knit to grunge the look up a little so I added monochrome beads, sequins and nuts from my local D.I.Y store styling it up with a pastel sheer dress and black knit. There are a few more posts coming up featuring other collar styles I have been working on, making them is time consuming but they really add pizzazz to an outfit.
