MVW 2015 Western Japanese Couture Styling Challenge

The seventh runway challenge was today and went off with just a few glitches.  For some reason my DV-C system decided to quit working, I couldn’t see any messages and everyone was going out around me 🙂  I thought I had crashed and finally figured out the DV-C wouldn’t work.  Finally after taking off and reapplying I got back in the lineup and out for my turn on the runway!! Here is the background story, the challenge picture and styling information:

Western Japanese Couture has evolved but the overriding trend seems to be avant garde mixed with traditional Japanese influences. To represent this concept I chose a very avant garde jacket that features an oriental influence in the print from The Secret Store combined with a LeeZu sheer blouse and black bell maxi skirt from SMS. The traditional mask that is off the face from Boudoir I think reflects the tension that is present when mixing the avant garde and traditional styling. This styling is a tribute to MIss Virtual World 2014, Angelica Carling.
