During one of my Window Shopping sessions, whereby i take time out to unwind and basically fest my eyes on things I'd love to have but can't afford-not right now at least, I came across this statement printed t-shirt for little girls, that got me thinking...
I honestly cant recall when exactly I, for one, became so fashion conscious! Was this a God given gift or was it imposed onto me as a child? If so then by who?
My parent aren't the slightest bit Fashion conscious, as a matter of fact they only opt for buying clothing merely because it is a necessity and comfort is all they ever take into consideration. If it weren't for Me and my uncontrollable desire to dress people, I think my entire family would be lost and out dated in terms of their appearances.
This really is food for thought... Thinking face

I am hoping there will be some sort of change in peoples fashion sense this year because this way the minority of us, (yes myself included) who actually enjoy dressing up won't always feel so overdressed just because everyone else is under dressed. A little competition every now and again won't hurt and is actually considered healthy. I can't look good for everyone's part. (Tongue in cheek)
Will keep you posted on this year’s predicaments. Who knows, Unam might just surprise us this year. Fingers crossed though that it actually does, or else I’ll have nothing to write about.

2012 was a year of experimenting in terms of my Fashion Design Studies.
Although I played it safe by not going all out BOLD, as would have been expected of me. I do believe my end garments, set themselves apart from the works of my fellow classmates in terms of originality.
'The Modern Suit'.
Its your basic suit, just designed Back to Front.
More fitting and body hugging, allowing it to accentuate the Female Figure more.
The focal point of the garment is the Back, therefore literally turning heads.
Namibian Material Culture
For this part of the course we had to represent one of the Namibian Cultures, by creating a more modern version of their renown Traditional Attire.
I was stuck on two, the Nama and Herero tribe. So i fussed the two, choosing to representing the people of Mixed Races.
The patchwork on the bodice is evident in the Nama peoples clothing and the ballgown skirt was adopted by the Herero people from the Westerners, who once colonised our country.
Although my designs may be seen as something of the norm, they are not!
"The proof is in the pudding."
