Made It Fashion Week

Fashion Week poster4Made It Patterns just released their new collection Fold|2, inspired by the Japanese art of Origami! To celebrate, Olu and Anna (the masterminds behind Made It!) put together a Fashion Week, with a star filled line up… and little me got to be a part of this! I’m so excited to show you what I’ve done! 😀

Don’t leave the show, before it ends… Stay for the after party!

Let’s start the show… (cue the imaginary music…)MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-01My son is wearing the Kite Fold Tee and the Book Fold Trousers. This collection is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The patterns are so original, edgy, but very wearable, with little details, that might look complicated, but are really very simple to achieve. The instructions are clear and super fun to read, with quirky remarks, that just make you smile all the way through.
MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-07For the t-shirt, I used three different knits, all from Nosh (that I bought myself.) and for the pants, a denim fabric from one of my local shops.MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-05MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-06The t-shirt pattern is perfect to play with prints and colour blocking, or both! The diagonal lines give it a cool and streamline look!MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-02MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-03MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-04MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-08MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-09The trousers feature some cool details also, like the side darts, that you can accent with topstitching; the twisting leg seams; in the back, the inseam pockets, where you can add a contrasting fabric; the diagonal fly… and best of all, no zip! (I always dread the zipper!)MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-07MadeItFashionShow_missCastelinhos-08Now for the after party…

      Thanks Andreia! I wanted to go black and white, but the fabric I had didn’t match, but I’m very happy how it turned out! É no pavilhão do conhecimento, no parque das nações.

    Those stripes! Love the tee — it’s super cool (and so is your model, of course). And those trousers are fabulous with that amazing topstitching. I love that there is no zipper, too! 😉

      Thanks Karly! He wasn’t very happy about modelling, which turned out looking like a “real model”! Haha…
      The boats are outside the Science Museum in Lisbon, which made this the perfect location!

    Your son looks super cool. I love how the stripes work for the Kite Fold Tee. And your photo shoot location has not gone unnoticed 😉

      Thanks for having me Olu! I actually made a giant paper boat, but then my husband remind me of this place, the Science Museum in Lisbon, which was perfect!
