  • The eonian chimaera of the very you is the ever impeccable scenery I have fixed these irises upon.

  • I am being ghosted by a bogus predicament that looms out to be the headstrong spectre at the feast.

  • "Ego voco tu, Thanatos. Spiritus de mors! Thanatos, ego voco tu! Moon mouthed in undertones.

  • The night orb knows one nesting doll that's under lock and key.

  • My noddle is the lair of compact crotchet, cycling reveries and complexity.

  • With these eyes on your way is the sense of wonder that devours my lucidity. And when fortune swifts yours my direction, I dive into a seraphic stupor just every time.

Who is Moon Lei?

Posted by Moon Lei On 12 April 7 comments
She is an idealogue whose nous is atypical, her shoulder on the wheel, it is art she pushes to delineate with laces and stones, or silk and satin. What she knows of aestheticism is the utter offspring of her very mode.  Be that as it may, keeping abreast of her sundry conceptions is a tough row to hoe for they come in legions that ebb through the rumpus in her head. How does she halt the beautiful stampede from evanescing? The wind, she hushes. The walls, she brings forth. She, the Moon Flower, mostly scintillates upon the cheek of black quietude.

I know her. 
Those of her kind send her praises, while commoners do the outright opposite.

Moon Lei.
A blatant belligerent, I say not, but rather a tactical magus between the in-betweens,

Basic Draping

Posted by Moon Lei On 06 April 3 comments
Draping is the art of fabric manipulation that allows the designer to gain full control of his preference and ideas  by positioning  pieces of garment  on a dress form. Pinning is used to secure the pleats, darts, and gathers.

Madame Gres was one of the leading designers who adapted the concept of Draping, which started in 3500 BC through the creative minds of Romans and Egyptians.

I just finished Dressmaking I (Preparatory)
when I made this; and yes, it's pretty basic.

Bodice~ From Mid-Shoulder Waist Dart Pattern
Bottom~ From Full Bias (Circular) Skirt Pattern


Layout: Tulle on duchess.

These are hand-sewn flowers

Attaching the bodice..

Finishing the lining.. 

 Zipper gone wrong! I had to replace and resew it.

Piping consumed my patience; and I (blind)stitched that
dangling thing there :)

I'm currently studying Module 2 (Secondary Dressmaking)

Love yah!

Sewn are riots of cylinder beads, come a hundred and one spangles. Spot on is the lucent that counterbalances the lackluster.  Tones of blue, green to complement red; colors run side by side into a tout ensemble of arches, spirals, and random shapes.

Fashion Forecast 2017

Posted by Moon Lei On 05 April No comments
A summer salute from the aestival sun! Ground-breaking femme fatales, roguishly avant-garde and newfangled!  I smell great femininity with traces of machismo. A philosopher and a sophist in combined, whose convictions are unbending. Women on a roll, pressing the revolutionary mode on. We are becoming more subject to modernity along with idealism. Clothing, based on the latter-day womenkind is from smart to business-casual. Boyish and girly, both extremes.  Influence fashion, let fashion influence!
  •      COLORS: Shades of orange like atomic tangerine, carrot  orange, vermilion and tenne for the sunny appeal.  Tones as fern, forest, mantis and sea greens to calm the daystar heat with breeziness. Have everything blue and white for some radiant skyish approach.Soft-hued earth colors will neutralize the lucidity of sunrays on a high noon.  Got to be flashy with silver and metallic gold. These colors depict women of the advanced generation.

  •     DESIGNS: Blossoms typify female species, so count floral prints in. Batik is hip. Style overload! Hand-crafted laces have the likes of today’s women. Yes, experimental and innovative. Leopard, so is camouflage, symbolize courage and intractableness. Summer must be filled with these. Torn and bleached, best describe headstrong chicks on the rise.Ethnic? Exotic! And technicolor por pabor.

  •      FABRICS: Pass on the cotton chicas, this fabric allows the body to breathe out from the suffocating heat. Thin linen, raffled chiffon, layered sheer, rayon and soft denim are the ultralight clothing materials best for summertime. The warm weather is pro-comfort, there must be easiness all over.

  • STYLES: Ostentate those beguiling collarbones with asymmetrical hemlines and boat necks; oversized tees to loosen up the uptight weather; sheer dresses for the flirty see-through look; square and baggy pants, perfect for the long awayday ahead; rolled-up sleeves and hipster shorts, ah so husky; modern goddesses on earth must be clothed with Grecian empire waist and cold shoulder tops. Lastly, jumpsuits to delineate future and rugged sports.

  •        SHOES: Have kicks that really kick. High heel sneakers, dear. Make way for moccasins, suede sandals, topsiders, espadrilles and Mary Jane’s. Ankle boots and lace up wedges will tell who the boss is.


  •     BAGS: For multi-taskers, toss the satchels and fold over clutches; totes, cosmetic cases, duffle and bucket bags will be loved by venturesome wayfarers.  


  •     ACCESSORIES: Opal rings, bangle bracelets, lariat/sautoir/bib necklaces, bandanas, scarves, aviators and floppy hats.

Lady Squeak

Posted by Moon Lei On 30 March No comments

Seam the lament
on a web of filament
silk worms 
o'er morose norms 
crimson may leak
its muse, lady squeak
say not, alas
raise the kvass
rupture the link
go fancy a drink
til thou eye 
the fairest rye
e'er headstrong woe
now a beauteous bow
