Please indulge me a 'proud Mum' moment!
My middle daughter began her Art Foundation course at University 10 weeks ago. She has just produced this amazing outfit as one of her self-initiated project assessments. It is a corset and pleated skirt made from newspaper, which she has stitched and added painted graffiti and sequins.
Here she is modelling the outfit in a setting she designed and photographed herself, to represent 'victim fashion'. I am amazed and feel thrilled that she is pursuing a course that she obviously loves.
She hopes to follow a pathway into costume design.

    Simply to say that I love the pictures and what your daughter has created. It is clear that you both are great artists!
    But, more costumes designs, please!

    I´d love to wear them! ;)

  2. Wow that picture is worthy of any exhibition let alone the outfit. What a clever girl .... must take after her mum:))

    best wishes Ginny

  3. My goodness what a talented young lady! She takes after her Mum (I see that comment above mine, too)! She certainly looks like she's found her path to success!

  4. Well you have no worries there Niki.. your daughter is obviously very gifted.. like her mother!

    The costume is very clever..I love seeing innovative ideas using different medium..

    It's a lovely feeling, isn't it! If she bases her career decision on her obvious talent she'll go far. Thanks for sharing. Well done M.

  8. Hi Niki

    What a talented daughter you have!! I know I'm repeating what others have said, but of course she takes after her mum!!

    Good luck to her - although it appears she doesn't really need luck, she already has the talent required!
