O So Unrefined

OSO Unrefined: Blue Explosion

Leave it to Blue Explosion to fight back with flare. Defying both the odds and fashion elitists alike; explosions just can’t be contained.

A Designer’s Thoughts

The completion of the Burgundy Mess hadn’t left me with the same bad after taste the Red Beast left me with, so I decided to follow up on making a Lolita design. My intention for Blue Explosion was far from what it turned into. The design started as a structured concept that was not supposed to be unrefined. I was halfway through the jumper skirt and remembered why I wanted to get away from traditional Lolita. I tossed aside the design and used the remnants to collage a new dress.

I struggled with the Blue Explosion more than the Burgundy Mess because I had no idea what to do with it; the design didn’t come as naturally. I wanted to limit myself to Lolita-esque elements, but it seemed it would never fit. I almost let it sit for a month before finding the courage to face it. I joke around saying that this is what happens when Lolita throws up.
