I LOVE A GOOD COMPETITION!
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Your Wardrobe Unlocked has come up with some amazing themes for the 2012-2013 competition. This year it will be POMP AND COURT 1730-1760 and STEAMPUNK: HISTORICAL INSPIRATIONS. You can visit the site for all of the information and details. Also if you want to become a new member, the first month is half-off. Take a look…there are some amazing articles on history, ideas, construction patterns and embellishment techniques!
This past week has been overwhelmingly wonderful.
My internship work with the Tudor Tailor has been assigned, I’ve been invited to give a lecture on 1912 fashion in Southampton, and this summer I will be working at Colonial Williamsburg alongside some of the most inspirational women in the industry. Then I found out about this award? It’s just all too much. When I sat there crying in class on Wednesday after opening the email from Colonial Williamsburg my lecturer told me that “Life has a funny way of suddenly coming together every now and then to show you that this is where you are meant to be. The only direction to go now is up, so climb higher Lyze.”
I keep thinking I am going to wake up and find last week was a fantastical dream. When the results for the Your Wardrobe Unlock’d competition were announced I once again had to re-assure my teacher that these were tears of joy (and not fear over the project brief she was going through!). I feel so overwhelmed and blessed. I can’t put what I feel into words and thank you seems so small compared to the joy and gratitude I feel inside.
Please keep in mind the new competition themes have been decided! For more information please click here.
Wish me luck!
