Colour of Couture - Runway Audition

It has been a crazy week. I was shortlisted from the photo submitted for Miss Colour of Couture - Top Model Competition and had to style for the runway audition in less than a week.

Living in a dream, fantasized idealism, gentleness, gracefulness and sensuality with a hint of old fashion charm. Let's see romance, soft pastels with a burst of bold color. Show your sensuality by mixing and matching whether it’s a gown, a pants suit or dress.

I was excited and immediately did my research to get some inspiration for this theme. There are many interesting ideas but none seemed unique enough for this competition. Then, I found John Galliano. I went through his years of collections with awe. I decided to bring his Spring 2012 RTW collections into SL.

I was greatly inspired by the silhouette of rounded shoulders, rounded sleeves, and the general sweet spirit of things like the printed lace skirt or the organza dress with puff sleeves, bias cuts, frills, ruffles, nostalgia and romance. All the models walked down the runway clad in an elaborate jacket seams ruffled with strips of printed chiffon, a blouse was afroth with spirals of white tulle, a hat and high-heeled Mary Janes and ankle socks.

I went around SL fashion stores and sims for the next 2 days and I found the perfect pieces that I wore on the audition day! The soft pastels are seen in the lace blouse with ruffles long sleeves and the mini skirt. For a burst of bold colour, I have contrasted it with a darker pink jacket and the hat. To accenture a hint of old fashion charm, I found a perfect shoe from Maitreya Gold which has a tint of gold and feathers.
