Since october, I´m doing an internship in an atelier, where we make plissé. It´s a technic to make pleated cloth. It´s one of 5 ateliers in austria, because this handcraft is already dying out. I´ll make a video how to make plissé and you´ll see it online. I´ve made some plissé dresses, but I also learned many other stuff, too. I´ve made my first corsage and my clothes are getting much more qualitatively. So I´ve made my first couture dress with a corsage and a lot of peacock feathers on it, which is my favourite animal, as you know and I´m already looking forward to shoot it.
Since 2 weeks, I´m working a few days the week for the italian designer Maurizio Giambra in vienna. He designs beautiful gowns with lace, glitter and sequins all over. It´s a pleasure to be part of the team, which works like a family and I felt like a member of it, since the first day. The 16.12.14. he made a fashionshow for his friends and clients in his elegant atelier. We were working the whole day, to change the dresses for the models and to decorate the atelier. I enjoy working behind the scenes during the show, to change the outfit of the models during a minute. I did the same before in a theater for 2 month.
