[WATERCOLOR - awaiting embellishments] french school - student project

my eye is always caught by the soft, flowy, graceful gowns that walk the runway. it's not the impeccably tailored suits or masculine flair [though i do love a good blazer] but it's the romantic layers of tulle + chiffon that just stand out to me. i've always been inspired by Degas' ballerinas + Vera Wang's bridal collections... so after much debate with myself, i decided to go with my gut + illustrate those romantic looks that i love so much.

after reading about the french school of ballet, i wanted to use that as my project name/theme... it's all about grace + beauty, with a touch of ballet whimsy.
