Drawing Model Sketches

I think everyone who studied art might sometimes feel they can’t draw. You get a lot of artist who really is masters in drawing. This is a very nice video clip which I find on the net which I like to watch again.

Victoria’s Secret 2018

Before I start I want to come back to this morning’s article for my blog which I wrote. That is the swimming wear which I saw for men.

What I am saying with these three designs is that if you count all three pieces of clothing you address 8 different pieces of clothing. With the swimming pants, you can also use them for under wear.
If you look at the jacket you will be able to make a shirt and a jacket.
With the long pants, you will be able to make shorts and long pants.

My idea this morning was to go bling and do beading work on the clothing, but when I looked at this and combine it with the designs of the fashion show Victoria’s Secret 2018 show I think if a couple wears it you will find it will work.

This is the video clip of the swimming wear of the Victoria’s Secret 2018 show.

The designer was British designer Mary Katrantzou.

Beading

Yester Anton and I went and shop a bit. We came to the fabric store and I saw this beading work. I was always looking for something to do at times when I sat in front of the tv and want to do nothing. I don’t like tv, I will sit in front of the computer and surf or work with the tv on.

This is what I found in the shop. I remember when I did textiles I enjoy weaving. It is sorry there is not a lot of money in South Africa for weaving, otherwise, I would enjoy doing that.

The Greatest Showman – Never Enough (Vídeo con letra) 2017

What about Fashion.

I was searching the net tonight during load shedding. I was on my phone and find Nataniel a South African singer. He is Afrikaans speaking but does a lot of productions in English. He is also well known for his theater products.



Nataniël- Fashion (OFFICIAL VIDEO) 2005

For more than three decades Nataniel launched his solo career as an artist.  he has released 19 albums, staged more than 80 original theatre productions and published 21 books. If you look at him you get the feeling if it is a copy of Boy George a singer from the UK.

This successful man, makes life for everyone interesting. He likes the new things in life. I remember I was in my first year on teaching college in Groenkloof in Pretoria, and I saw him at the post office. Years there after I thought, those day’s there were no internet or email, he maybe post a letter to his grandma. Years there after I saw him in the parking of Brooklyn mall got out of his Mercedes.

He is a singer, songwriter, producer, director, designer and public speaker,.

Why Nataniel on my mind tonight? It is six minutes past 2 on a Wednesday morning. I see my self now as a fashion designer and what a fashion designer do is he looks at the best artist, what they wear.

There are a lot of interesting things going to happen in the next three to five years, so there is a lot of work to do, please stay in touch.

The Queen has long been known for re-wearing pieces from her wardrobe. (Today Her Funeral)

I am not a royalist nor a big fan of the royals of England but I must say when it comes to fashion, and design, you need to keep an eye on the noble of England. In many cases, you can look at all the kings and queens and princesses and princes of the world.

I must say the person I always was wondering about was Her Majesty, the late Queen Elizabeth of England. Sometimes I wonder what made her so different and why is she so conservative, and also well known for re-wearing her old clothes.

I believe that she was an example for all of us, she was not the show like Princess Diana or Fergie. I am not going to write about the royals but I must say it only once happened that Her Majesty Queen of England died. It is a sad day today because it is the funeral and people all over the world will have a look at what happens now in England.

So let’s go back to what she wears. There were a lot of times that we saw her in the standard one-color piece with a hat and then brooch, and please don’t forget the handbag. The handbag was standard, you will always see her with her handbag and I wonder what she carries in that bag, make-up, maybe a picture of her dogs, I don’t know, I think that stays personal. Sometimes I wish someone can just tell us or discuss what is in that handbag of Queen Elizabeth.

Her jewelry is simple, most of the time she had pearls. That could be her favorite jewelry, it would be nice if she wears more diamonds, but that is personal, I love diamonds and stones, and also wants to wear that myself.

The Queens’ personal dresser Angela Kelly explained how Her Majesty carefully consider the reuse of her old dresses. The life span of her dresses was about 25 years. The royal likes that her clothes to be adapted and recycled as much as possible. The media got familiar of the dress after two or three outings. Later on she will look how to modify it or worn it on private holidays at Balmoral or Sandringham.

Below is photos of Her Majesty’s clothing which she worn again.

I love the photo which I got from Cup of Star’s website. The fabric which is use in this very sexy underwear is made out of %90 Polyamide and %10 Spandex. What I personally love is the buttons which makes this bikini top amazing beautiful. The stones and the silver gives just enough bling for the hot sunny day on the beach.

You are not to Old to go into FASHION

I started to look at Imran Amed’s videos, and find them very helpful. In the few weeks which passed I think to myself that I don’t the right thing to go into fashion. I felt that I am too old and I struggle to do things because of my age, but luckily my health is still very good.

Imran also started with a blog, 10 years back and he as I understand wrote about fashion. That was his main thing, to do something creative. In 2018 I started with a cryptocurrency website, and could not make money out of it. So I stop that and decided that I am going to continue with my art, and if you look at when I started in 2019 in November it is all drawings, and paintings, and then suddenly fashion steps in. Everything changed, all that I learned to do the last seven years since I am not working, become fell in place. Now I know what to do on social media, what to do on the website of mine and on LAVI’s website.

It took me a while to understand myself and where I am going to fit in this new career which I am in. Everything changed after I start selling a product called Honey, It is a brand of its own but sells accessories like handbags, shoes, and jewelry. That helps me to go in the street and show the people on my phone what it looks like. I started to get a funnel on WhatsApp where I personalize the adverts to them in person, what I did was just greet them by their name. I send out about 70 WhatsApp today, and got four responses regarding the advert, but had no sales. So it is a very bad day for me today, but still not motivated. I think I have my Twitter account in place, Facebook, and Instagram, and now have a new funnel which is WhatsApp.

I have enough time, not that much but want to see some money come in next year by this time, we got an order yesterday to redo underwear, and will bring in a small amount of money to help us grow, and to start working with clients. It will help to start a client base and to keep in contact with them.
