Fruits of my labour

During my time working at Erdem, i was lucky enough to work the month leading up to the Spring/Summer show at London Fashion Week in September 2009.  
Whilst working at Erdem, i helped to bead, and hem, and stitch many outfits, some of which i have shown below.  I almost feel a tad proud everytime i see one i worked on in a magazine, or on a website :) 

Erdem, has since grown and grown and grown in popularity within the fashion industry.  Even at the SS 09' show, he was lucky enough to have fashion royalty, Anna Wintour attend the show and come backstage for a preview of the collection.  (Was quite exciting to see her i must say!)

I changed the hem on this dress, which was longer in length and didn't have the lace underneath.  The lace had to be calculated in terms of cost and how much would be needed before cutting it up and sewing to the dress.  
This dress was my favourite to work on, as it took a fair amount of time to hand stitch the lace to the blue silk mikado dress.  (The Lace was on the front and back so you can just guess how long this took!)
This skirt i was lucky enough to actually cut the pattern, sew it and embellish with hand stitched silk flowers on the hemline.
