Ann's supermegafabulous debut (a proposal)

 My review center is so weird. They require us to be there at 7.30am but classes always start at 8. haha anyways, while waiting for the time, I doodled on the first page of my enormous reviewer. At first, I doodled some random stuff but then I remembered Ann's post about her ideal debut dress so I started designing some stuff with respect to her descriptions on that blog entry. After some time, I remembered I have to do some costume designs for the school's theatre club so I made some random notes and doodles. We were doing The Pretentious Young Ladies by Moliere as our culminating activity for our summer workshop which is really hard because the setting is during the great Elizabethan era. I shall write about the wonders of my summer workshop some other time. So anyways, I took some photos of my doodles. Ann darling, if you're reading this, tell me what you think :)

random doodles, notes and sketches

angled shot

Before anything else, ignore the random doodles in the background Yes I know they are distracting. =)) This dress (U shape neckline with feather trimmings, uneven hemline, ethnic embroidery accents on the hemline and waistband) is actually inspired by Filipino designer Aries Lagat's dress from Philippine Fashion week May 2010. (See photo below) Sir Aries' dress has some native Indian-ish vibe in it so I figured maybe Ann would like to wear something like that in her debut. I was honored to witness the construction and the fitting of this dress when I was having my sewing course at the Fashion Institute of the Philippines. Such craftsmanship :O  

Ignore everything except the dress in the middle. :P (the girl at the left is just a random sketch while the Elizabethan dress at the right is for the theatre club) I'm not so inlove with this dress though. It is a short hour glass dress with a wide V neckline, some gathers at the chest area, ethnic printed neckline, hem and waisband and a chiffon train at the back.

Ignore everything except the dress in the middle :P This number is with an X shape neckline, pleats at the center front and soft flowy gathers at the skirt and an uneven hemline.

This dress is kind of similar with the one in Ann's post. It is a short one shoulder (one-sleeve rather) dress with diagonal pin tucks at the skirt part and a detachable ruffled chiffon train embellished with ethnic or feathery doodads.

As for the hair, I want her to have short volumized hair with curls at the tips like Selena Gomez. I also want her to wear long triangular earrings. (see photos below)

For the headress, it should be a feathery  headband or cocktail hat like in the photos below.
