Delivery for Oakwood

So today i delivered the Oakwood Dumpster Couture dress too the school. It was so great to have been able to work with them, the school has a real community vibe. such lovely people and they were all so happy with the outcome of the dress. Hopefully to be auctioned off at the schools centurion ball this year.

For now it has pride of place in the main hall...

Transportation issues...

i think the next investment may need to be a Dumpster Design company car/van/extremely large truck, as my two seater mg seems to be struggling!

Couture Collection

Royal Navy Dress made from table cloths

Delicious Dress made entirely from their magazine

A dress for Mindworks marketing, made from handle with care packaging tape

Was given a really great opportunity to work with Waitrose LOVElife magazine, and this is what i created

Oakwood school commissioned me to make them a dress to celebrate their 100 years this year. The dress is made from old scanned school photographs and school prospectuses.

My favorite dress so far. Loved working with Southsea Deckchairs, so much incredible printed material to chose from, being in their workshop was like being in candy land! Dress made completely from Deckchairs.

Busy Busy!
