It’s that time of the year again, Sydney will soon celebrating the 36th  Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade on Saturday 1 March. It’s one of Australia’s most famous and well-loved events, bringing thousands of visitors to Sydney to join in the celebrations

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is one of the world’s largest and best-loved LGBTQI celebrations, a chance for all of the colours of the kaleidoscope to come together, to commemorate, celebrate, and communicate the universal message of diversity, equality, and infinite love.

Join hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the route, as 10,000 people parade with pride along Oxford and Flinders Streets in an explosion of creative and political expression, a captivating extravaganza of lavish floats, satirical statements, spectacular costumes and showstopping moments.

Last year, I designed several costumes for the festival. Here is one of the costume I designed last year for super star Miss ‘Fanny Floss’. This costume was made to measure just for her and was embellished with crystal diamantes.  Miss Fanny Floss was one of the leaders of the Asian Marching Boys and Friends.

This year again, I am designing another amazing costume for Miss Fanny Floss. I can’t show you as yet, it;s a secret!  But it will reveal on the day of the parade. I will do another post about the costume and the parade in the first week of March. So please stay tune.

Just want to thanks Miss Fanny Floss for the opportunity to design the costume for her last year and  You will love this year costume  Miss Fanny Floss.

This is so pretty!

I just love designing this!

I love the lace and the layering of the fuchsia and finally the diamantes set it off to tell another story!

I did enjoy embellishing the outfits and work out the patterns for the diamantes.

What can I say  the labour of love and passion always SHINE!

Elise is a gorgeous daughter of my beautiful friend Wendy!

We have seen her blossom into a beautiful young lady ! I remember Elise told Wendy –

“Anthony is my very own designer, and he is going to design my formal dress” I thought that was so cute and I m honoured.

 

This is a dress that screams out Hot, Sexy and Strong Silhouette!

It fits like a glove but glides like a snake on the red carpet!

Like they say :

“The most simple dress is the hardest to create!”

So I think I have achieved that!

Thanks for visiting my blog and please have a look at my online boutique and check out my Spring & Summer Mens and Womens Collection for 2013/2014

 

 

This dress is one of my latest “Made to Measure”(Couture) dance wear. My client wanted a leopard print dress that still has the sexy elegance look. She wants to be the queen of the jungle and rules the dance floor as the same time when she performs. The dress also embellished with Ruby Crystals on the front and side of the dress. She was so happy with this dress. Now she can perform with my 3C signature on the dance floor.

Last week I was so pleased to receive this beautiful photograph of Lisa Marie. She was wearing one of my latest design “The Lyrical Coral Lace”. Lisa Marie won First place in Lyrical at The Hawkesbury City Eisteddfod. The Eisteddfod provides an opportunity for individuals to gain experience by performing to the public while polishing their skills and gaining knowledge and valuable experience by participating in all areas of the program. For many it is a stepping stone to greater things. The Hawkesbury region hosts a competition that is widely recognised and respected. People travel from as far as Canberra, Bathurst and the North Coast. It is by far the biggest annual cultural event held in the Hawkesbury each year. Thanks so much for your support and your mum Kate.  You are so talented and beautiful. Congratulations  on your winning  Lisa Marie.

I had such a pleasure designing two dance outfits for Gabby Melissari. Also to congratulate her for winning award at the event.

Congratulations Gabby and thanks for your support over the year.

You and Maria are wonderful.
