Hey, I just found your site. It is absolutely amazing! I was wondering what kind of fabric you use in your creations?

Hello :) Thank you!! I use a lot of stretch fabric, both in lace and in other fabrics. I prefer the more sturdy types, with stretch. My favourite base fabrics are cotton based voile, viscose (a synthetic fabric made out of cotton pulp), polyamid, fine wool, cotton blend (as in: cotton with a little elastan or cotton with a little elastan and satin) and funky things like milk fibre (actually made out of the fibres found in milk) :)

Cool, thank you for the reply. I am working on the costume lay out for my senior project and was having trouble figuring out what fabric to use. Then I say your work and the kind of drape you have, with the fabric you use and that was what I was looking for. So I'm glad you replied! Quick question though, where do you recommend buying or finding these kind of fabrics?

Hello!

Quick question with late answer...! Sorry !

Thank you for your response!!
Well, I live in The Netherlands and I buy my fabrics almost all locally. I have several suppliers, markets and wholesales nearby (in my own city Utrecht, in Amsterdam an surroundings) with all together about 50 different suppliers of fabric. 
When you do not have this around I recommend searching on Ebay or Etsy. But, beware, looks can be deceiving. I always look at the fabric material. For lace it's inportant if you wish stretch or not (common materials added in stretch fabrics are elastan and spandex for abouT 5-10%). As basic materials I love Viscose and Polyamid (not to be confused with polyester). Both comfy to wear and with little wrinkles! Cotton or fine wool are also fine. (note: the more cotton the more wrinkly it can get).
Polyamid, fine wool and viscose are all great for draping btw! Also synthetic mixes containing a part of those and a part of stretch fabric, with a part polyester can be fine!
Oh and for thin (transparent) fabrics, love voile, chiffon, silk and georgette ^^

I have to say, while I love solid design, I've never been a big follower of clothing or fashion outside of an interest in character design work.  But your work changed that.  This is stunningly beautiful work; Heart-wrenchingly delicate, filled with vision, and gloriously creative.  Simply, this IS art, perfectly executed.  Your work inspires.  Thank you.
