Urgh, I've been so swaaaaaammmped with requests and work offers! Emails, phone calls, business offers in the street....I can't have one moment of peace. I'm still deciding between two main sponsors, and I'm ignoring all the fashion companies that want me to become one of their many designers underneath them...I don't want to work that way. I refuse to be lumped with other designers and have to take orders, again. The point of making my own boutique was to let my creativity flow, not have it stemmed by some hotshot with no idea of how fashion works.

My fashion ideas this year are taking off....so I think bold colours and soft fabrics are in this season~ Also, boooots. They're good this season.

But I've managed to finally fend off the most of them so.....Yukari-chan, would you like to go on a proper date now? I'll take you somewhere really nice! :)

Guess since I can talk about it without crying, I can probably say it now. Kaede and I split up on Christmas. It's....more and less painful than I imagined simultaneously. Ha.

But it freed me up a lot of time to work on my clothes, since the shipments arrived the day after and now I have sewn 13 outfits for the fashion show and have plenty of time to work on edits or redoing them completely. Like a rough draft, but not. They look pretty cool, if I say so myself. Quite out-there, so they'll definitely be noticed, but not completely ridiculous like other fashion show stuff.

I've always wondered about that. I mean, I get that it's a way to let out your creativity instead of just following the trends for the rest of the year, but most of the stuff that the models wear, make them look like nutjobs. It weirds me out. I mean, I bet the designers wouldn't ever want to wear most of their designs.

Anyway, thanks so much to everybody and their presents. They're all really amazing :)

I want to throttle someone! Is it so difficult to deliver three shipments of cloth without losing them in transit?! Now I have to wait another three weeks for a bolt of crimson charmeuse! And that was the final touch to my designs! Now I have a deadline for my designs in two weeks, with non-existent cloth.

I suppose I could make do with satin, but the problem is that it doesn't bunch up as nicely as I would have liked... The trials of being a fashion designer without cloth! Maybe I could sneak over to Matsumoto-sensei's studio and steal some of his? He might have a couple of spare bolts...

And Hara-san, I have to thank you for your ideas! The painting-inspired clothing line will definitely make it to Fashion Week! How could I ever pay you back?

I guess since it's December, I can officially post up most of the winter trends today~! I love winter fashion, it's so much more modest than summer and I love lots of layers~

Woollen leggings, infinity scarves, and thick, faux-wool coats are all the rage. Give a beret and some earmuffs a try and don't forget the retro sweater-dress, which is apparently making a revival. Thermals are a must, especially since people are saying it's going to snow, so get some really nice ones that look good! Good ones are turtlenecks or rollnecks, that protect your throat~ And corduroy trousers can keep you really warm as well.

Boots are also probably good as the weather gets colder. Get nice leather ones, not those fabricky ones that fall apart at the first hint of rain. Hiking boots were all the rage at the Milan show, especially, which is awesome since they're really comfy too! And I love leather gloves with touch-screen sensitive tips! Makes going on your phone in the cold a lot easier~

Colourwise, grey and claret are in this season. Electric blue is as well....though I'd avoid that. The better colour is a nice baby blue.

Okay, I've had so many ideas for clothing, that I haven't stopped drawing for something close to 9 hours straight~! But I have two concrete sample chunks for both Yukarin-chan and Lilia as far as clothes go! So, the next time I see you two, I'm all ready! I feel so accomplished~

The shop's still not doing as well as I'd have liked though... Even if I am on a weird streets with weird shops, I'm really close to Blue Note and some other awesome clubs and schools. Still, can't give up hope so early! I'm designing flyers and going to try and post them in as many shop windows as possible. Maybe I should run a competition to gain some interest from others?
