The subtle 70’s have hit the runway this year in Gucci’s Spring 2015 collection. It is always easy to connect with a collection when influences of the past are weaved into the designs. Today’s DIY has heavy influences of the drumline bandleader jackets. When I saw the gold bullion embroidery and the oversized buttons as the model walked down the runway, I instantly started hearing the rhythmic drum beat I used to march to in parades.
We all know that runway looks can not always work as streetwear, but I thought this piece was very doable for all ages and styles. My total cost of this design ended up being $27…$7 goodwill black jacket, and then I spent another $20 on trims, buttons, and a new bottle of e6000 fabric glue.
This project is FASHIONISTA level 2, due to the hand sewing and time involved.
Lets get started with today’s video:
