Couture Adventures 2020: Focus on: The Whine-icorn!

I am super grateful to the folks who joined me this fall/winter in being my models/co-creators/willing superheroes to showcase my skills as a designer.
This year, the nature of my “collection” is more “adventures”– #TAVCreationsAngels Assemble !
Each week I plan to focus on one of these amazing people and the character and creation we produced !

 

Today, let’s talk about The Whine-icorn !

This TAV Creations Angel Superhero combines the powers of the teen and the unicorn in a tall talented soul!  

 

Let the teen be comfortable – bridesmaid or prom!

*organically created*: This is the way of things in my studio…  we start at an inspired point and then the creation takes on a life of its own. The client has full input throughout the process and we decide together what changes may occur from the original idea to create a highly personalized finished piece! 

 

And a reminder that The Whine-icorn and Zombie Dragon Girl came as a team!

Holiday Season quickly approaching…

No ” holiday themed music” here…

Subtle in front, fun in back
Subtle in front, fun in back

just a simple reminder that there will be some fun soirees in your life in the next 6-8 weeks and you might be almost ready to start looking into that modern dilemma, ” Whatever will I wear?”

 

 

If you’ve:

  • got the perfect outfit, but it needs a bit of tailoring;
  • you thought you had the perfect outfit, but now you think it could use a redesign;
  • been gifted gorgeous fabric and now want to have it made into that creative vision;
  • or just want something new and cannot find it out there already
