Two Talented Teens Hand Paints Gowns and the Designs are Amazing
In any formal event, it's always enthralling to be dressed as if you were born to stand out. Think of the red carpet fashion during award ceremonies and film premieres — or, well, we don't even have to go so far... Imagine your JS prom night and graduation ball, and how the right gown can make you feel like you're a blossoming Queen of the Night.
It's a luxurious dream for most women. But how do we afford one-of-a-kind couture when we can barely make ends meet, right? Two young ladies — and we're talking about teenagers — didn't let financial limitations get in the way of their imagination and creativity.
Ciara Gan, 17, recently shared on Twitter that she designed her own dress for her graduation ball with the help of her mother: sewing, stoning, and hand-painting it all!
Her wonderful work earned praises from netizens, with some commenters hoping she could be commissioned to design their wedding dresses. (Yes, she's accepting commissioned work: paintings, illustrations, and murals!)
On her Instagram account, Ciara revealed that she first made a model of her dress out of paper during the summer last year.
Earlier this month, another gal wowed social media with her works of art.
Tisha Chavez, 18, embellishes gowns and other fashion pieces by painting on them. To her, this has become an income-generating hobby, with mostly debutantes and students attending prom nights as her clients.
Tisha said she began her newfound passion with her first hand-painted gown inspired by Heart Evangelita's art. The actress, who's now also the creative director of Kamiseta, is known for hand-painting on designer bags, gowns, and other fashion items. Now also a vlogger, Heart's works has been exhibited in and out of the country since she broke out of the local art scene in 2014.
