But as it always seems to be, retro design is going to be a big part of my day today. Among the more mundane tasks, today my work day will include designing pink retro lingerie for a colleague's art/fashion fusion coffee table book. The whole book is a really exciting concept based around the theme of candy! Irma, who if you recall was the lead make-up artist on our August photo shoot, is collaborating with a photographer friend of hers who is in turn collaborating with many different artists to create unique fashion looks using different candy as the primary medium! For this shoot Irma has chosen cotton candy (Oh, just think of the possibilities!) and has asked me to create some pint retro lingerie for the shoot! She told me the model will have cotton candy pink finger curls for her hair style so I'm thinkin' a pair of satin tap panties are in order! I'm excited to try designing/sewing lingerie for the first time. Several people have asked me about adding a honeymoon lingerie collection to Laura Whitney Couture so this will be a trial run so to speak!
