I already told you some time ago about this project for Up the paper magazine, the new issue is been finally out…
And here is the page I have created! I guess it would be great for the readers to see the whole process of one of my DIY projects, from the beginning till the outfit shoot.
It all began with an old cover from the french Elle magazine, the Givenchy collection and some Swarovski crystal elements that reminded spring details.
Then i grab a vintage men shirt at ‘Wams’, a local second hand store.
After having updated the shirt cut I’ve finally add embroideries on the collar, mixing silver studs, colored crystal & golden beads.
I decided to realize structured lines that would contrast and give more character to the “romantic” side of this shirt.
The outfit doesn’t need to be much sophisticated nor complicated, i choose a black jeans and taupe suede leather booties. The collar it-self is a jewel piece, or likely a garden. I really love it!
So, how do you find the shirt and the page?
