Alien is tailoring


Some of you may know that last summer I began a school for tailoring. It is something I wanted to study for a very long time. I always liked craftsmanships, I love the commitment, irregularity and rarity of a handmade piece. I learnt so much in only a few months, it is making me a lot more confident in my abilities and made alternatives to designs limitless.

This skirt is the very first piece I made from A to Z using those professional skills. I used a black and an off-white corduroy fabric and put a beautiful button on the back. Digging in my vintage button collection to find the right to fits is the best feeling ever.

For this outfit, I was inspired by the swinging London of the sixties, by the black and white amazing dresses Courrèges made in the same periods. Some lithography from W.Kandinsky. And by the backgammon, me and my man’s favourite game.

What I wear: Beret – Vintage / 1960’s Sunglasses / Belt – Marc Cain / Skirt by myself / Over the knee boots – Public Desire
