Dreaming up a fabulous wardrobe one pattern at a time

I love fashion. Not in that totally-obsessed-Oh my God, I’m gonna die because I can’t name drop that I’m wearing the latest designer duds-or, Look at me! I’m so snobby-bougie-stuck-up & I should be the centre of attention with my sheer fabulousness! – kinda way.

No. I love when things resonate in such a profound way that my heart skips a beat, everything starts to go in slow motion and my every waking thought for the next few days is how in the world can I recreate that. Gosh, just how DID they make that???!!!!! This, I think, makes me totally random in my appreciation of designers. I don’t really care what they’ve done whenever. I just go with what I like. Maybe that’s a tad irreverent!

So, I was casually scrolling through the US Magazine website and looking at what the stars wore to the Cannes Film Festival 2012 when I saw Cheryl Cole in Stéphane Rolland. Now this French designer never really popped up in my radar, but I was arrested enough by the dress to go check out the designer’s website.

And. OH MY GOODNESS! It was TOTAL Spring/Summer 2012 Haute Couture LOVE!!!!!!! Here are a few of my favorites from the look book.

And, to add icing on the cake, it seems that I’ve already, unwittingly, been appreciating his work.

Rihanna in a 2009 design when she attended the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards.

Cheryl Cole singing with Will-I-Am on her show Cheryl Cole’s Night In back in 2010.

Beyonce at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.

All I have to say is that I can see myself creating an inspired-by outfit by sometime soon. This was just what the doctor ordered. I was feeling so blue about being under the weather for the last week  or more, I just couldn’t get a move on with my first wardrobe remake creations. But now, I’m off with renewed inspiration and maybe you should go check out a hot designer today, too!
