gucci and pucci and dior, oh my!

So this is Pre Fall 2009 Dior, with yes, you guessed it, references to film noir. I've been trying to think of something more conceptual, but ultimately my designs so far are headed towards classic, elegant, sexy rather than fashion forward. However this isn't such a negative as honestly I could do with focusing on my pattern cutting skills (or lack of them) more than anything else!

My next step is to check out fabrics - thinking denser fabrics, still feminine but stronger and not too floaty. Floaty says airy fairy to me! The obvious choice would be black. But I was thinking possibly grey - playing with the idea of using the shade of grey that represents blood red in a black and white film/photograph.
