About Me

 

THE DREAM STARTS HERE:

 

Welcome to my page

My name is Jade, and I’m a Surface Textile Designer based in London.

 Nothing tried, nothing gained.


 

 

IN March 2014

I started making my daughter’s prom dress from home to get myself back into sewing things.

It was such an important piece that I started three months before the deadline.

I‘ve made garments several times but never sold them.

” I looked at my garment as artwork, as if it was a drawing on the wall and not a garment to be worn”.

So I challenged myself to make my daughter prom dress as a gift, all expenses I paid.

I’d never made a prom dress before or made a garment from scratch at home. I’d always sewed at college or university where you could ask someone if you went wrong or needed help. I was on my own with this one.

PRETTY IN PINK PROM DRESS

During the process of making the garment, I used sixty meters of chiffon organza fabric in three different shades of pink.

I never measured my daughter once in the whole design and making process, and I made the dress to fit her like a glove.

”I measured her with my eyes.”

I had a vision of cascading chiffon organza mixed with hot pink fabric, individually gathered by hand and placed.

I have to feed the brain as a designer, so I started looking at different prom dress design details on YouTube.

My daughter’s only requirement is that it has a heart-shaped princess cut neckline with diamonds, and it has to be hot pink. I searched YouTube for inspiration, and I came across a video called Shabby Chic Art Dress – Paper / Mache and Lace. At Mi Cottage Crafts on YouTube.

I made the prom dress by using a mannequin as a mould to create the heart shape cut in the front.

The method used was paper mache mixed with P.V.A. glue for the bodies, applied to this method several times.

Then I sprayed the entire bodies hot pink and left it to dry.

I gather the chiffon fabric for the bottom half of the dress to make a ruffle. Then I attached all pieces to a mesh I made with a bit of elastic at the top of the waistband. It took me three months to complete the prom dress. Most of the fabric manipulation was done by hand.

 

I used two thousand two hundred Diamond Swarovski Crystal beads with glass.

MY END GAME

 

 

 

I aim to create innovative designs specializing in surface textiles and fashion. I offer a range of garments made to measure and, sometimes, simplified by up-recycling clothes into new luxury garments.

 

 

Have a look around, and if you have anything similar to share,

I would love to hear.
