Ankara & Pleather Fusion

Fall has slowly crept back in. Once the weather starts to get cold again, it is an obvious sign that it’s time to dust out all our outerwear. However, I have noticed that whenever I go shopping for clothes, I never seem to find anything that really suits my style. I am quite eccentric style-wise. I like to walk into a room and have everyone stare at what I am wearing…hahaha, vain right! I mean why do I have to spend £50 – £100 on a jacket that I will probably see someone else wearing. I appreciate unique fashion. I guess that’s why I make most of my occasion pieces now.

In one of my recent projects, I made a funky blazer.

The blazer design was inspired by a pink wool jacket I made in my second year in fashion school. I used the same pattern but simplified the sleeves.

I retained the several panels in the front and back as well as the curved top back piece. See the original design and inspiration here.
