Deadmau5 Concert Shirt

Last weekend we attended the Deadmau5 concert at Wild Waters so I made myself a shirt to match my neon accessories. Hand rendered Deadmau5 logo and a set of battery pack powered fairy lights popping out through eyelets.

African ball gown

This ball gown consists of 10 meters of African printed cotton fabric and 20 meters of tulle. Its strapless and laces closed in the waist on the back of the corset. My lovely model Refentse (Uberglam  Model of the Year 2011) is wearing a lime green perspex heart with the engraved detail of a Kudu head (one of the heart designs that can be ordered from Solei d’ Afrique).

Part of my range

Here are the front and back views of three of my outfits that formed part of the range.

The first is a simple mini dress with a cut out back made in Capulana and Shweshwe. Nthabiseng is wearing a perspex heart with engraved detail of two owls (this is one of the heart designs that can be ordered from Soleil d’ Afrique)

 

Next up is Tshego in a colour blocked mini dress. The dress opens with a bright set of  turquoise and orange buttons all the way down both sides of the dress and is trimmed with felt hearts in the waistband and blue lace on the hem edge.

 

And finally, Tebogo in a black linen convertible dress, the dress has a cut away back, an oriental collar, three godets that open or close with zips to widen or reduce the volume of the train, and a colour changing lining that can be exposed at different levels by inner ties. Tebogo is wearing a perspex heart with engraved detail of the African continent (this is another one of the heart designs that can be ordered from Soleil d’ Afrique)
