Belle Armoire Magazine

I am so excited to say I was published twice in the November/December issue of Belle Armoire!

 This design was inspired by the late Alexander McQueen's amazing use of mirror image prints.  I developed a technique where you paint one-half of the garment and then fold the unpainted side over to the painted side, unfold it and voila!  This is so much fun, it's easy, and has a huge wow factor.

This couture ensemble was designed by me for a CHA trade show, using glue, and limited sewing.  All the beads and ruffles and sequins and feathers a glued to the lace blouse and skirt.  I actually too 2 skirts and altered them to form one tulip skirt.  You have to pick it up on the newstand and check it out!

From Belle Armoire's website today:

"Be delighted by the November/December 2010 issue of Belle Armoire. Heidi Selig’s genius works of clothing for kids is featured in the Designer Collection profile. Megan Morris saved up scraps from making purses to create the stunning scrap dress featured on this issue’s cover. Learn about fusing metals with Ruth Rae’s tutorial, which showcases beautiful pieces using the technique. See the results of the Little Black Dress challenge, where we challenged artists to make a little black dress that fit their personalities. See the beautiful embroidery work of Debbie Bone-Harris, in a jacket and ensemble that’s sure to inspire. Regardless of the type of art to wear you love, you’re bound to find it within the pages of the November/December 2010 issue of Belle Armoire."
What an honor to be included in the fascinating line-up of designer's in this incredible magazine!
