finished projects

Vogue Charity Fashion Show is an annual fundraiser at Queen’s University which raised $23,000 for Kingston General Hospital in 2007. As a second year student at Queen’s University, I teamed up with a friend to design and construct what turned out to be the winning collection. We had a ton of fun and the prize included a photo shoot with Spencer Fu.

We each made four dresses inspired by our favourite moments in fashion history. The blue dress to the left is what I thought Lizzie Bennet might wear to her prom. The green outfit involved some pretty intense hand sewing – I bent a few needles stitching through the boning of that 18th century style corset!

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
