Fashion is lovely

DIY : Designer Balloon

Last week when I posted about my inner ‘red balloon‘… I wasn’t sure if it was a fashion related post. Is it merely my perception, or are there a growing number of balloons that aren’t just for kids? Last summer on SHOWstudio, Gareth Pugh, contributing editor, submitted a balloon pattern for FASH-OFF… where people sewed their own balloons. I thought it was a lovely idea, particularly with the images of the Red Balloon guiding me through the streets of Paris. It made me kind of wish I could sew, and make my own balloon out some of the silk scarves that keep having babies (more scarves) in the scarf drawer. What kind balloon would you make?

“Made from lace found on a market stall. Once balloon has deflated, shall turn it into a lamp. It’s two times smaller than the original pattern because my printer wouldn’t print anything larger, but I like it the way it is.”

I just found SHOWstudio. I think it’s fabulous.
