This blog has been abandoned, really. If I'm honest no-one could be bothered to post and we were all doing some project, somewhere around Stardoll. My first thing I want to talk/tell you about is;
We haven't been telling you anything about our first collection; Venus. We just wanted to share with you the latest updates, whats going on and what will be happening in the run up to SFW.
Plamena and I, had our very first meeting with our Global Group mentor, Bruno. We discussed the usual stuff, what we had for the collection, if we needed any assistance, but we came on to a topic that concerned me and Plamena, which you may not have known yourselves. The Couture House, should we say 'Brand' is Couture Stardoll, hence the title of the blog. Our first collection we named 'Venus' containing Grecian Style Couture. So, no, the line is not called Venus. Secondly, it came apparent that we had two winners for the design contest. Yes? Well, we recently, very recently, set them a task which meant them having to design another outfit for the collection. Here was the brief;
As you won the design competition, we have another task for you. We need you to design one more Grecian Style dress. It can be totally simplistc or totally glammed up, but take into consideration what the other entrants got in their feedback. This should ensure your designs perfection and success. Both designs will be featured in our collection, that is in SFW, and as an added bonus and a thankyou, you'll get to model both of your outfits! You need to have submitted your designs by 8:00pm GMT on 23rd Februray. Good luck! We would also appreciate if you could do them before this date. Thanks! Designs to be sent to me.
Me and Plamena decided that the two winners, greatdj & Foxiuke, were not getting enough recognition so we required they create another design. and that they would both feature in the SFW collection.
Thirdly, I was thinking of making some CSD t-shirts for you to wear throughout fashion week, or just as a souvenir. The proceeds earned from these t-shirts will go towards future competitions and a raffle that is going to be held. But firstly I wanted to know whether you would buy these tees!
Finally, we are 5 designs, and 2 make-ups aways from the collection being released! We're all so happy as to how it has come together, and so is our mentor. At first, we believe we couldn't do it, but thanks to Bruno, we got a major confidence boost that puts us in the postition we're in today. We're quite glad about SFW being put back a week, too, as we wouldn't have done it without that week. Who would have thought a week would give so much.
Our very own writer, pwincesssara, has kindly donated 100sd for prizes to keep the blog active in the run-up to SFW. We are still deciding on how to award people with half of the money but I have a task for all those graphics designers out there. As I have recently been signed to an agency, I need to build up my portfolio. I need everybody who wants to enter, to use me as a model, and create either and accessory or an outfit on my doll, basically modelling it. All winning entries will receive gifts but the main winner will win 50sd! Also, everybody who receives a gift, their entries will be a part of a collection called, the People's Choice. This is basically a collection made from Stardoll members themselves.
