Candy Violet was featured in a fashion show with 3 of Japan's top lolita designers. I sadly wasn't able to be there in person, but here's a little bit about the outfits we were showing on the Saturday!
I decided to chose a color pallet that represented the brand going with purples for candied violets, and pink for candied rose petals, all with a little fluff or sparkle for sugar. Since I have a long time passion for historical and vintage fashions the show moved from 1770-1950's, every eras dream girls!
Grand Habit a Lolita
This outfit was inspired by an old 18th century fashion plate of a lady dandy, the book talked about how she was over dressed and I thought isn't that what a lolita strives for!?
Chemise a la Reve
The outfit I made for a visit to Versailles and based on the clothes worn by Marie Antoinette and her clique at the Petite Trainnon. (This dress will be available soon for purchase at last in a few different colors!)
I found a lot of beauty in the rather difficult and overlooked romantic era styles. I wanted to include this one as something a little bit different.
This outfit is based on one of my favorite designers during the early 20th century. I'd wanted to make an outfit like this for sometime, although I opted for a more mid century silhouette.
This outfit was to represent our new direction! The inspiration came from the Hollywood epic Marie Antoinette from 1938, and the kitschy Du Barry was a Lady from 1943. The mix of period costume and Hollywood seemed the perfect place to end the show, just like we started but with a bold new outlook!
The exciting news too is that all the items from the last 2 outfits are now available for custom orders in our shop! The chemise dress will be finally joining the catalog too, just waiting on a few details to get the photos taken and up on the site, should be up in the next couple of weeks.
I hope I'll be able to show the video soon, though I'm still waiting to see it myself!
