My biggest fabric explosion yet




I'm working on some folliage for a tree that will morph into the train of dress for a jungle themed fashion show in April. So basically I just bought every kind of green fabric I could find at Joanne's that wasn't totally disgusting, and now I have to make it all look like something. The lady at the cutting counter kept laughing at me.

Good News!














Ok, so I've been aweful about House of Violet updates this fall. College took over my life, and I just couldn't justify posting when I had about 9,000 introspective essays to write about my best personal qualities or humanitarian career plans (not to mention design portfolios, resumes, interviews, etc). However...it paid off! Cornell University Apparel Design program, here I come!

So, hopefully I can get back to my blog and actually back to working on designs! In the meantime, here are some last minute pictures I had to take/have taken (thanks Bridget and Erin!) for my portfolio.
