The Surprise Revealed to be.... Collection 11: Ostentatious, created by Alice Fare

Note: When Alice had her head injury last month, the word went out that her line couldn't be in SFW and we were devastated, for us and her. But we didn't give up hope, and when she could she worked on a small but incredible line for us, as a sweet way to round off our couture parade. It's not as big as others, but I think the talent shines through. And honestly? Best runway of the week, j'adore!! Congrats and thank you Alice for your hard work!

Main Ideas: For this collection I was inspired by the magic of Asia. After watching the movie Tekken (perhaps not a literal connection to asian culture, but nonetheless inspiring) I was caught by the elements of girl power. See, Tekken tells a story of a fighter, they fight for a living in times of desperation; women included, and it was this power they exuded that made me think: so what if they wear skimpy clothing? I can reinvent that; perhaps not in a sensible manner for sport, but I can sill use those elements of power and strength to create an outfit that tells a story. Particularly the shoes express how impressive and fearful a strong woman is; but also how feminine and mysterious they are. My vision was to mould my own interpretations of strength into something beautiful; and this is what was formed. Ostentatious.

The shading is really....odd. Not pretty at all and your models look anorexic.

Guys Just To Inform Who Didnt Like It.. This Is The REAL Graphics :) And Alice Must Be A Illustrator Or Something And It Takes More Than Just A Year Of Studies To Do Such Things ! On The Other Hand, The Clothes Are Newly Sketched. I Like Them Cuz They Are Different :)

The shading is really disgusting. Seriously, I don't like any of this.

Erin said...

To all of you naysayers, this is the best collection, by far. Yes, the models are thin. That is how REAL fashion models are and how REAL fashion designers sketch their designs. And who honestly goes to Stardoll, of all places, to see how your body should look?

Ok, guys, I have an eating disorder, so I see the body in a very very different way to you, so if this offends you, then yeah, I'm sorry, but in all honesty I had no idea. Besides, this is all about the clothes - So judge the clothing please!

Cheers

Amazing graphics as always by Alice, but the models look anorexic, but overall, the clothing is fabulous and something I would want to buy from the Starplaza.

WOW
Now bringing up you have an eating disorder for sympathy?!

The outfits aren't that good either and honestly, the models look so damn thin that I can't even look at it too long. It's gross.

Nothing is in proportion at all.

The clothes are amazing, BOTTOM LINE. xxJucii

Well Done!!

Dear Anonymous,

She never hid the fact that she has a disorder.

I wish you the best Alice. And the Clothing itself is perfect, I just wish the models with thicker, but I understand where you are coming from.♥

Brumilicious/Julie. said...

Whoaa!!
Best graphics,those manequins look real..like..people!
I love the clothes,the last outfit is just stunning!

Cianboland said...

Screw what those big-headed no it alls say, this is a truly magnificent collection. I can really see where you're coming from, and it's true, each of those stunning dresses tells a different story. I really get an Asian vibe from this.
I myself, being Japanese am very impressed by this and the way you designed the Chinese/Japanese dress is spot on.

Magdaleena said...

Bow-how-how, if the models really look that anorectic then DEAL W IT, no one forces you to look at these. And that IS the way designers draw the models... Water heads.

Magdaleena said...

Btw love the collection :))

ashtone said...

WOW! I've always loved Alice's creations

Lily Rose ♥ said...

While the models do look extremely thin, I believe it's the clothes that we are judging, right?

Shayan. said...

Ha, you cant seriously be serious.
This is the skankiest thing i've ever seen.
Skin is ok, but these girls have fake tits and the whole shebang.

Shayan. said...

I love to draw super skinny people, that's not the issue.

HA, THEN YOU BLAME IT ON YOURSELF?
Wow, way to end it all off with class.
The girls look skanky & you should take responsibility.

Maria said...

RIGHT?
Its not artistic. It's totally slutty. Geez its out of proportion.

Bumble0061 said...

hm she has an eating disorder? I sympathize with that, but ALL HER OTHER GRAPHICS seem to be just perfect sizes for the bodies! Wow how strange...

nikkiiGOESrawr said...

Oh gawhd! It's friggin' beautiful! I love the second. To me, it displays a tough, ninja-like, but graceful look. The fact that she's really tall with the short hair and nice facial expression gives me shivers the way it captures me. The lettered tattoo really helped. The way the dress fits, the colors, the design in a loss for words. YOU are sincerely the BEST. And to the 'anorexic' comments, how silly. The skinny-ness is NOT her intention at all. It was to create models best to display the fashion. Alice, even though I just followed this blog a second ago, you're now my favorite;]
