It was a while ago when Company magazine asked me to lend my DIY skill for their Blogger DIY feature, I believe the May issue is still available in newsagents. I was very inspired by Simone Rocha SS12 collection, I love their use of lace trims, appliques and conceptual materials that romanticise the whole aesthetic-minimal look. To create an ideal accessory using the similar elements it would have to be in a form of a clutch bag, an IT bag that everyone will talk about.
I chose to use a clear sheet of PVC from Borovick Fabrics Ltd, guipure lace from Kleins and clear concealed zip from John Lewis. Unfortunately I don’t have any magic tricks to show to you but do stay tuned for part 2 in mid June, I’m currently working on a maid of honour dress for myself to wear at my sister’s wedding next month so there’ll be another DIY piece to blog about.
