Mr. Sourpuss gets to work


After the party we went back to work. Swimwear design isn't all about playing in the sun or dining in moonlight, there is some work involved. We set up shop back on the boat and got to sketching out the new looks for the southern hemisphere - summer is just around the corner for everyone fashionable south of the equator.

Here's a shot of me between drawing sessions. I'm trying to work out a certain literary reference for a new trunk - but I don't want to be too serious about it. My team was giving me a hard time - calling me Mr. Sourpuss. I'm actually hiding a smile under my frown - look closely - you can just see it.

UPDATE

What a night of drawing. New ideas falling out of the sky like the perseids. More soon.

Nice portrait!
I'd like to see more sketches/drawings of yours.

I agree with Mikki, I would like to see more sketches as well. The top that you're wearing--the striped one, is that part of your collection? It's hard to find them around here--the effortless French marine style and I'd love to get my hands on one.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I'm glad you enjoyed the article. I think the "burkini" has just started to become popular and more people are attempting to design their own versions. I'd be interested to see designers take on modest designs geared towards women who choose this type of swimsuit in order to give them more choices--it's a great market for it!

An excellent eye for fashion to go with your excellent artistic ability! Can't at all go wrong with a pair of louboutins...i dont mind amplified glamour for the sake of sole comfort.

Thank you again for visiting/commenting STELLA, very sweet.
