In July of this year, I entered a fetish design contest. I had never designed any fetishwear before, but I'm always up for a challenge, so I figured, why not?
Here are the submitted sketches. They're not the kind of quality sketches I generally bust out–more like quick croquis because I was too busy actually sewing these suckers together.
I was chosen as a finalist to actually enter the show. The contest promoters suggested if I had anything else I wanted to toss up on the runway, I could, so I tossed in this little number I made in school.
This is a picture of my friend S, modeling it on my bed. My bed is a queen and she's standing in the far corner, and I cropped about 3 feet of train in the photo. Yes, this dress is a monstrocity.
Without further ado, here are the photos from the show, courtesy of my SO, A.
The corset got changed at the last minute. I thought the shirt collar and tie made for a more powerful image. I love how the skirt swings when she moves.
This shot was taken in my kitchen at the final fitting but I uploaded it because I think it's the best back shot of the outfit.
Oh, by the way, I won.
