Etsy Designer Feature + Dress Giveaway

Image hosting by IMGBoot.com

I stumbled upon this beautiful shop when I was browsing etsy treasuries. I don't think there is a single item that I don't love! I'm always fascinated and inspired by fashion designers. I think it is so cool how they bring their ideas to life. Let me introduce you to one such designer...

designer: Beki Wilson
lives: Seattle, WA
creates: casual separates, party dresses, custom bridal

Q: What are your muses?
A:
My muses are creative women, choosing their own paths, creating their own maps.

Q: Out of Line started in 2000, what was your inspiration & what was your first piece?
A:
Inspiration for my line came from thoughts of creating clothing for myself and my friends. I didn't have grand plans, I love to sew, and love clothes, and that has evolved into a line and business that I'm very passionate about. My first piece was a long sleeve t-shirt, I was obsessed with stripes at the time (still am) and the shirt had lots of them going all different directions.

Q: Tell me about the Fashion school you attended? What was your favorite thing?
A:
After quite a few years of self teaching and experimenting I decided to go to fashion school. I attended the New York Fashion Academy, here in Seattle. My teacher, Terry Horlamus, has an amazing understanding of pattern making, draping, and construction techniques. The program really filled in fashion gaps that I had, and gave me the confidence to move forward with my line. My favorite thing about school was being around other people like me! People that want to geek out about fabric content, ruffles, the fit of a dart, lace, etc. My favorite project was making a ballgown. It was a month long intense process and sooooo much fun.

Q: If you could see your designs on any 3 celebrities, who would you choose?
A:
I don't very often think of dressing celebrities... maybe January Jones (she has the best name), Gwyneth Paltrow (great legs, and I love that she named her daughter Apple), and Lucy Lu (exotic and feisty- love)
