MATRIC FAREWELL SHOOT & A SNEAK PEEK
As promised some time ago, here are some pics of the photo shoot I did for Marié-Louise's Matric Farewell in Rustenburg on 23 September. During April this year Marié-Louise {ML} and her family visited us and she mentioned that she has this unusual matric farewell dress in mind. The dress had to have different panels and onto each panel different embellishments had to be sewn. She mentioned that she was looking for anything thats interesting and could be sewn onto the dress. Being a scrapbooker, I immediately thought of all the different types of embellishments we scrap with and wasted no time showing ML these. After spending more than an hour scratching through all my embellishment containers, we ended up with a huge bag filled with every embellishment you can imagine ... never in my wildest dreams did I think that all these would end up on a one of a kind matric farewell dress.
I am sure you will agree that the end result is totally unique, and comes to show that even a classy dress can be jazzed up with scrapping supplies ... moral of the story ... what will the fashion industry do without us dedicated scrappers. But, I must give ML all the credit for thinking out of the box. Everyone stepped out onto the red carpet at the event wearing stunning traditional ballroom gowns, but ML and her partner definitely made the fashion statement of the night. And then of course Marié-Louise had the perfect personality to pull it of.
