Figure Skating

Love figure skating?? 
here's a school project i worked on for Chanel. 
Chanel hasn't created yet outfits for figure Skating sport and when i got figure skating as the sport to design for, it was a very challenging and yet very interesting project to start.
Chanel known for its tweed and the classic black-n-white look, i tried to maintain the same stream by not going OTT.

Figure skating dresses can be too wild and horrendous sometimes, so bright too much glittery. some are too cute, too pretty! Some of them we want to wear it as an everyday wear because they're too beautiful. 

Its amazing how the figure skating fashion change over the ages, its so inspiring! i took my inspiration from the Vintage skater outfits.

Material is an important thing to keep in mind because of the routine the skaters follow it needs to be comfortable as well as compatiable to their dance routines.
 Camellia's the flower of Chanel, i could't miss that , could i?? ;)

My skater shoe design. use of leather and Jacquard lace.

I was asked to design a window display as well and this is what i came up with. I used the Chanel symbol for hanging down my figure skating mannequin in a dance routine position.

i used the normal spotlights to create the stage light effect. Using different skating position images on the spotlight, i used the light to create a shadowy figure skating dance routine on the background.

You can check out the short video of the window display HERE

Stay Peachy!
