Hello Fellow Deviants!

This page is devoted to my historically inspired fashion creations under the label Somnia Romantica.

Trivia:
My name is Marjolein Turin, I'm 32 years old, I live in the Netherlands together with my husband (we got married on May the 30th 2014 :heart: ) I'm full time self employed, designing, making and selling my historically inspired fashion :)
Interests

Dress forms and photo shoots

Journal Entry: Thu May 22, 2014, 5:38 AM
Often I thought I had to choose between the two. Or that I had to go for a model posing in front of a plain white/black background.
Over the years I realized that artsy photo shoots are way_too_much_fun. So, I decided to do the practical, clear photos at home, on a dress form and further only do fun and artsy photo shoots!
In this journal I will show a compilation of things I have made in the past few years, left dress form, right photo shoot!

In the future I'll keep on doing things this way: A clear dress form picture to show the item as it is and further I'm going to participate in artsy shoots, where there is room for the whole team for creative input ^^

I'm going to get married within 9 days, but after my honeymoon, I'll be 100 % creating and shooting again :-)
I will also show pictures of my wedding, as I'm making the dress myself ^^

Best to everyone!

Arachne shrug Somnia Romantica by Marjolein Turin by SomniaRomantica
Arachne shrug Somnia Romantica by Marjolein Turin
This time a capelet / shrug in grey with black lace and grey trim :)  I made the shape of this one a bit different than the previous ones, with less volume at the front and more volume and length at the mid back. Inspired by late victorian fashion, adjusted to own design.

Shrug Baroque Victorian, by Somnia Romantica by SomniaRomantica
Shrug Baroque Victorian, by Somnia Romantica
This capelet was inspired by the lovely base fabric, which is a thick lace in ivory with gold thread. It's decorated with ivory lace, fine lace trim with a gold shimmer (the lace on all hems, which I got from a dear friend who bought it in Poland for me), golden trim and bronze plated metal clasps :)
