I got inspired by a Walt Disney’s contest, which is about designing a dress. I have not designed a garment for a long long time but now I feel like making one.
The last design I made happened like 10 years ago or even more… I wanted to be a fashion designer since I was a child and I was designing one or two dresses a day. I loved it but at one point I had to decide what I wanna be… and being a fashion designer seemed just a big dream to reach, a dream, which will never come true.
So I have become an art teacher, what is not that bad at all – don’t misunderstand me -, I love that, too.
Well, I do not like public voting, do not really like advertising my works and asking people to vote for me… but this contest is like that. I have to submit my dress on Tumblr and let the people vote on my work. “The top ten Submissions with the highest number of “notes” at the end of the Contest Period will entered into a second stage of the winner selection where a judging panel (made up of Disney executives and one independent judge) will choose the potential Grand Prize winner and the nine (9) further Submissions which will be chosen as runners-up and awarded Runner Up Prizes, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.” – Disney
Here is my first design – the process I mean – and my Tumblr account: http://yoyomiyoko.tumblr.com/
