Shorts: Custom made by my design / Heels: Melissa x John Paul Gaultier / Purse: Prada
Preview Magazine had their annual ball this year with the theme of Skin City. What to do when you can't find anything you really want to wear? Make something, or better yet, have it made (due to limited skills and time). The theme was really open to a variety of interpretations, but I went with the idea of 'skin' in general (fabrication and my own skin). I had some yards of faux leather sitting at home, and luckily a great tailor to work with who put my design to life in a span of three days! So happy with the outcome. The top was inspired by the amazing Maria Van Nguyen's super cropped top design, I got in touch with her and she let me borrow the idea (thanks again Maria!); the shorts have huge slits on the sides, unfortunately we were rushing with the photos and also admittedly had a little too much fun at the party that we forgot to take photos of that detail. Not to worry, I'll wear it to an outfit post sometime soon. Thanks for the fun times, Preview!
P.S. My hair is purple for the moment!
