1st December 2013
As the holiday season canters towards us in a blur (whaaatttt it’s Dec first already!?), I find myself unusually attracted to all things bright, glittery and girly. In general my evening footwear is black, simple and most often better suited to black mesh than black lace, but at this time of year – and for some unknown reason – I can’t help but covet bow heels in all shapes and sizes (ok I do know the reason, do I have to spell it out for you? c-h-r-i-s-t-m-a-s p-a-r-t-y). This style with the big bow on the side has caught my eye over and over, and I’m obsessed with how one would recreate such a look . Ideas?

I recently hosted a series of intimate workshops with 7 For All Mankind here in Hong Kong, where we embellished bowties and collars using studs, rhinestones and all manner of other adornments. It was so much fun, and I loved that the bow ties and collars were designed using scrap denim from their factory. Yay for reuse and refashion! It was especially lovely to meet so many other DIY addicts from around Hong Kong and share trade secrets about the best places for DIY material hunting - I can’t wait to do more of these events in the future. Hope you enjoy the recap!
Thank you to the 7 For All Mankind team for having me!

I briefly spotted these Vika Gazinskaya scribbled jewels a while ago, but only recently stumbled upon her collection in its entirety. Although a few years old now, in my mind true inspiration never dates. And although I love the tactile quality of rhinestones, I have to say a cartoon style drawn on collar like this comes in a close second. And what better way to practice your illustration?
