This Week's Fashionista is:

Julia Scott, Lincoln, UK

 

 

Describe your fashion:

For this particular look I was going for an Edwardian Day Dress inspired look meets Marie Antoinette with a little bit of Keira Knightley's 'Duchess' thrown into the mix. I opted for pastel pink hair for a bit of a twist and used a hat style I'd seen and loved in The Duchess complete with matching goggles to complete an outfit fit for steam train travel. 

Did you make, mod or buy your fashion:

I made the entire outfit myself (http://www.curiousfashion.co.uk) save the accessories and the shawl which were purchased. I saw a dress at an Antique Fair and completely fell in love with it but unfortunately it was extremely small and in very delicate condition. I took a photo to help me work out the pattern, located a fabric I liked and then set into making. The dress is actually two pieces, a top and a skirt. The top also has a black lace high-neck shirt insert at the neck to give the effect of a lace shirt underneath. The hat was originally a wide brim straw hat but I removed the top and added matching fabric and made a matching set of goggles to perch around the band and styled the wig myself. I also re-covered a set of shoes to match too.

What are your style influences:

I take my influences from film, television, theatre, circuses, history and couture fashion and tend to mix and match elements I especially like without sticking rigidly to any historical accuracy, which allows me to put a creative fantastical or sci-fi influenced twist into my creations. I also find that a specific fabric will sometimes give me an idea of what it wants to be made into and consequently I seem to have a never-ending list of new projects!

Anything else you want to add:

Most of my outfits have a dual purpose. I use them for Steampunk events and also wear them when performing or use them for photoshoots in connection with my music; Alice's Night Circus. You can see some other outfits and creations in the photoshoot on the site and there is also one of my songs on the site as a sample. I'm currently completing my debut album and always working on my next new clothing project!
