For my Zalando competition entry I decided to chose one garment that I really loved and style it in two different ways (one for day and one for night) using only products sold at Zalando …… of course this wasn’t a problem with the shop having so much variety and so many brands.
I decided to base my outfits around this really cute little checked mini skirt:
Only Planet, Smock Skirt. I chose this, as checks are big this A/W and this being quite a light colour means it will take to all the way to S/S as well.
For the day look a paired the skirt with:
With this look, I went with the Mulberry look of A/W 2011, its was a kind of English heritage feel, with checks, duffle coats, hats and chunky shoes.
For the night look I needed to make this skirt more glamorous. I paired it with :
This look is quite different from the day look, I chose a fitted top, instead of a jumper and heeled brogues rather than tough boots. I also had to have the fur shawl, as I loved the fur collars at Gucci A/W 2011, I really think it adds a different dimension to the outfit. The gold clutch is another must with metallic fabrics popping up on many catwalks.
I drew the little sketches to help me picture the outfits as one. I have been sketching like this for as long as I remember , always with long skinny legs and massive feet. I also picked up tips on how to do their faces from a girl who did my sketch at the Britain’s Next Top Model event, sadly I didn’t find out her name, but thank you. I always feel the need to add more detail and you just don't need it !
I hope you liked my entry :) Wish me luck.
