The contest "Moedepoo 2012" I won was the first fashion contest in my life. I think the preparation for contest took about 4 months. After work I spent much of my free time in the fabric store. At first I was depressed because I thought I would never find fabrics I need for my design. Estonian fabric stores are not really impressive and if there is something then it is very expensive. For my suprise I found most of my fabrics from the smaller cities than Tallinn (for example Paide Lipi-Lapi Äri and Rakvere).
The overall impression about Moedepoo 2012 organization was not good. The backstage was too far from the show place. We had to go from one house to another and it was raining outside. Lighting of the stage was poor so the photos were not so good. So I hope that next year the organizators will do it better.
I got to know at the last minute that I need model for every costume, but I had 8 costumes and 7 models. So I had to wear one costume myself and guess what it was ment to a smaller model but somehow I managed to wear it. And one of the models wore smaller dress also, so it did not give the effect I wanted. The dress was straining every where. In general I spent for this show over 1000 euros.
BUT I WON AND THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT IN THE WORLD! Very big thanks to my team:
