SR: Zdravo svima! Dozvolite mi da vam predstavim ovu lepoticu, Jelenu. Ona je jedna od čitateljki mog bloga preko koga se upoznala sa mojim radom i bila je izrazila želju da joj dizajniram i sašijem haljinu za malu maturu.

Jelena se sama odlučila za boju platna, a što se tiče dizajna, krenula sam od njene želje da haljina ima neke otvore, da bude moderna i neobična, ali i prikladna za njene godine. Moram da kažem da sam bila veoma inspirisana jer sam imala dovoljno slobode, a opet i jasne smernice. Dobila sam mnogo ideja i na kraju sam napravila crteže oko desetak različitih modela, da bi Jelena imala dovoljno velik izbor. Ona se na kraju odlučila za ovaj dizajn, koji je bio i jedan od mojih omiljenih.

Zamislila sam ovu haljinu da izgleda kao spoj dve različite haljine. U  samom početku sam imala ideju da donja haljina bude od crnog, težeg platna i da to bude jednostavna haljina koja može da se nosi i inače, a za svečane prilike da se preko nje navuče  haljnina koja bi bila od nekog providnijeg, lakšeg crnog materijala koja ima jedan veoma dugačak rukav i koja, kao i ovde, do pola pokriva donju haljinu, dajući joj mističniji i neobičniji izgled. No, kako je Jelena želela baš ovu boju, odlučila sam da haljnina i dalje izgleda kao da je je sačinjena od dve, iako sam koristila samo jedan materijal.

Ono što mi se najviše svidja na njoj je harmonija vertikalnih i dijagonalnih linija, kao i ravnoteža pokrivenosti tela i izreza na haljnini. Veoma sam zadovoljna krajnjim retultatom, a još više time što moju kreaciju nosi divna i posebna devojka. Hvala ti, Jelena, što si bila tako divan model i što si me inspirisala da naravim nešto na šta sam zaista ponosna. Veoma mi je drago da sam te upoznala!

EN: Hello everybody! Allow me to introduce you to this beauty, Jelena. She is one of the readers of my blog through which she got familiar with my work, so she expressed a wish that I should design and sew a dress for her prom night.

Jelena herself has decided the color of the fabric. As for the design, I followed her desire that the dress should have some cut-outs, that it should be modern and original, but also appropriate for her age. I must say that I was very inspired because I had enough freedom to create, but yet clear guidelines to follow. I had a lot of ideas and finally I made drawings of about a dozen different designs so  that Jelena had enough material to choose from. She eventually opted for this model, which was one of my favorites, too.

I imagined this dress to look like two different dresses are joined together. In the beginning, I had the idea to make the bottom dress of heavier black fabric. That should be a simple dress that can be worn daily. For the special occasions, over that dress should be worn another dress made of sheer, light black fabric that has one extra long sleeve and that covers like the half of the bottom dress, same as here, bringing some mystical and unusual vibes. But, as Jelena wanted only this color, I decided that dress should still look as if it is made of two dresses, although I used only one material.

What I like about his design the most is the harmony of vertical and diagonal lines, as well as the balance of the covered body and cut-outs on the dress. I am very pleased with how it turned out, but more because my creation was worn by such a beautiful and special girl. Thank you, Jelena, for being such a wonderful model and for inspiring me to make something I’m really proud of. I am really glad I have met you!

So, how do you like this? Enjoy in more photos below! Thanks for reading!
