The Wild Orchid

My month of heavenly bliss is over; I am back home from my very brief studies at Parsons. No matter how corny I sound saying this, it really is my dream to study fashion design in NYC, and to see it end so soon is so incredibly saddening! But now that I've had a taste, I think this experience has only whetted my appetite for more. And thus, begins my journey to move back to NYC and continue my endeavours, somehow. All of your words of encouragement have been incredibly lovely to hear - thank you all so much for pushing me through!
Now that I am back home and have absolutely nothing to do, I can finally update my beloved blog; as you are now reading! It should be mentioned that the wonderful Mademoiselle Frou Frou of the gorgeous Frou Frou Fashionista blog has awarded Gin & Roses the Sexy Blog Award - wow! Thanks so very much! My very first award!
I shall end my current rants by saying that I will, indeed, eventually post up some of my work from Parsons. It is just so strange to see the drawings I did on the first day of class and then look at my final project - what a complete 180 I pulled! But alas, that shall wait until I can figure out my father's scanner. Until then, I'll leave you with these simply amazing photos from Vogue Nippon's March 2009 issue, featuring Maria Carla Boscono and photographed by Camilla Akrans. I wish I knew the stylist - this is just so up my alley! What incredibly colors and clothes... I wish my entire life was played out in images like these. It is certainly worth looking at the full-sized images here as I had to shrink them down to fit my inconveniently small layout.
Good to be back.
