i realized i haven’t uploaded my design work in a long long time!!! so you’re going to be seeing a whole flood of this, since i have a whole semester’s work that i haven’t put up!!
(my sister and i at tokyo disneyland, christmas 2006!)
when we had to do an accessories collection, my instant reaction was to look to alice in wonderland for inspiration. i’ve always loved alice in wonderland, both the book and the disney rendition. and i thought both the story and the colors would be a great inspiration for an accessories line!
when i first did my croquis, it was really funny because i had just read the “darker” version, and everything that i was sketching was full of leather, studs and was a little kinky in a sort of s&m/fetish kind of way. which i really liked!! but i decided to save those sketches for a bigger project where i could incorporate with clothes, so i re-watched disney’s version of alice, and looked back at some of my photos from disneyland. i really liked the idea of creating a line for the queen of hearts, who is such a funny and ridiculous character!!
i quite like it, if i may say so myself. i want some of the shoes definitely. i concentrated on hard accessories, which means shoes, bags and belts. (fyi: soft accessories would be hats and scarves, etc.) i also drew them in various sizes, just because of the magic stuff that alice drinks, that makes her grow big and small. just a little detail i wanted to throw in!
