So if the shoes are labeled “upper”, are they worn like spats over a more functional, basic shoe? For visual interest, do you dress all the extras and then pair them up or arrange them in a scene so that there is variety of colour and dress within the frame (or is that left up to the director)? And what is that wonderful collection of drawings on a wall in your first tidbit above? Lovely!

Many thanks for suggesting the forum for these discussions and for sharing the work of other fabric/textile artists and designers. Makes for a more peaceful and positive online place.
