Couture Sewing

I'm always amazed where blogging inspiration strikes. I'm quite proud of my humble effort here, and really enjoy putting this together, but some times I feel like I'm grasping at straws. Last night, I can't even remember what I was doing when I came across SHOWstudio.com, but I'm glad I did.

SHOWstudio is fashion photographer Nick Knight's fashion broadcasting company that believes "that showing the entire creative process—from conception to completion—is beneficial for the artist, the audience and the art itself." It's a fun website to browse through, and I highly recommend that you do so.

I was quite pleased when I found these couture design sewing patterns from some of today's greatest designers. These patterns are not for the faint of heart-- they don't come with any instructions or hand holding. All the same, I might try one out.

Martin Margiela

And my personal favorite:
