Pink Rose and MBFF

I'm up to  my usual.
No surprises here.
Fashioned up a huge organza and faille rose.
Big and blousy.
Pink tinted.
 
 
 
 

 I've drawn from the usual.
Spent and hoarded bouquets. Dye dispersions.
Roses.
One delicate pink one, that even in decline has its merits.
Someone tried to throw this flower in the chalkface's rubbish bin.
I had to salvage and record its loveliness.
Dyed lots of fabric.
Arranged in folds to create some shadowing form.




 I'll keep zhu -huing until I get it right.
Then mount it on its base or band.

 I'll keep you in the loop.
Meanwhile, Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival is approaching.
I haven't really got a clue, but think there'll be a Flora in the Brisbane Arcade's Accessories in Bloom parade.
It's in the lap of the stylists Gods (or Goddesses).
 Get excited.
