"A couturier must be an architect for design, a sculptor for shape, a painter for color, a musician for harmony, and a philosopher for temperance." ~ Cristobal Balenciaga

Print Preoccupation

I have always loved animal prints but lately I have become obsessed with leopard print!  Whenever I see something with leopard print on it, my inner beast purrs with satisfaction.  Don't you just adore these photos?  Meow!

These photos and my love of leopard inspired me to design and make my own leopard print dress!  I only had 1 meter of fabric (which has an interesting corduroy texture and is semi-metallic close up) and was determined to have long sleeves, so it had to be pretty short ;)  Here's the finished product:

And here I am wearing it to Greta Constantine's "Non-Holiday" Party with DSquared2!!
