In the making of Pauline Armstrong "Fiancée du Vampire"

"Pauline Armstrong" fashion house is crowded with designers, fashion reporters and other people. I had to visit every room to find one person - the soul of the line - also known as Pauline Armstrong. She was supposed to meet me (the first face of her clothing line and a director of modelling office Pauline H.) in the café for a cup of coffee to discuss Stardoll Fashion Week, models, runway design and other stuff.

Pauline Armstrong

Pauline Armostrong joins Global Group. *GIGLES*
I'm trying to choose and select the best projects I can. I didn't have to look very hard for this one, this one kind of looked for me :D

Look at their amazing spoiler.

They are our third FASHION LINE, and they will also be in Stardoll Fashion Week.

WOE- in the making of

Wonderland Of E
SFW is coming, people are getting ready for it all over Dollywood... But what's happening in the WOE backstages? What truly is behind the collections of Wonderland Of E?
There are two designers of this fashion line- Egle Stone (vampire_, the main designer) and Emily Vaine (Pirata111, the couture designer). Creating an entire collection of clothing is pretty hard, I must say. 12 different outfits to think of and then create, match all of the colours, do the make-ups, choose the right models... All of this is very important, every detail has to be done perfectly, nothing can be forgotten.

Let's start from 0, when the collection is just in the designer's head, but when nothing is official. Then come the sketches (I'll upload my collection's sketches in the next post about the making of WOE). This is the part when you really have to make up your mind, because the collection depends on what you'll draw on paper, what your main ideas will be. My collection was mainly inspired by Ancient Egypt and Greece, because I truly admire these two historical periods, and the outfits that the Pharaons wore in Egypt really inspired me to make a couture collection of this theme.

Want a sneak peek?
Here's the colour palette that was used for my collection, and a sketch of the first outfit of the collection!

Yeah, you can't see it clearly, but I didn't push hard on my pencil, so it turned out too bright when I scanned it.

Keep your eyes open for more WOE.

*SPOILERS* WOE and WOE couture

Wonderland of E released their official spoiler.

Very simple but yet very well done. I have high hopes for this… But WOE gives us another surprise. This time there won’t be just a Ready-to-Wear collection, they ‘ll also have a couture one.

That's the spoiler.

Couture Stardoll. "How it came to be"

Plamena; Flicking through Tingeling on your average day, I was looking at all the vintage items, that appear to have been there for EVER! I clicked on one of the dresses named; Space Vixen Dress. Something clicked, and I shared it with Abbie.

Abbie; We had already been discussing the line, but never really came to think of names.

Plamena; We liked the idea of having an 'outer space' theme then began to talk planets!

Abbie; I suggested Venus, as it was a supposed 'female' planet and we then began to develop the line, once Plamena agreed with Venus.

Plamena; Then, what came into my mind, was a 'Grecian' style of dress. You know because the Greek are very goddess like. We believed that females were goddesses and females come from Venus. The collection's name was basically a connection conjunction, meaning the way we got it was from associations.

Abbie; So, in the next few days you will be at SFW. You will see our collection and we really hope you enjoy it. Wouldn't it be awesome to win best collection? I would personally like to thank Plamena as she has put an awful lot of effort into the collection and me? Well, not so much...

In the making

We will start a new segment. From this week until Stardoll fashion week. Once a week the fashion houses sponsored by us will do a post. In those posts they will talk about the process of creating the clothes.

The segment is called, obviously, In the making.
