lost Instructable.How do I find something that I saw before but can't remember where??

Can you help me find an ible please?  It was for hand made roses but they were called something like, Heritage or antique or old-fashioned. They were quite plump and the colours were soft and blended, there was, I think, print on the paper to make it look old. They were very lush and beautiful, even maybe shabby-chic. When I used some of the Key words I get gardening sites and answers. Help please.

Fashion from trash!

On August 27 and 28, in Nevada City, California, Haute Trash is holding the latest of what appears to have been a long history of fashion shows featuring creations made from discarded ... anything. Amazing clothing made out of garbage!  That's about as DIY as it's possible to get. I've got to go see this.  I'll take a camera and report back.

No Fashion Category @ Instructables?

Why isn't there a "Fashion" category here? "Craft" doesn't really cover everything. More of a suggestion than a question I guess. Where's the suggestion box? :)for instance:https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Removable-Ruffles-for-your-Shoes/https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Christian-Louboutin-quotPetalquot-Bag/https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Christian-Louboutin-quotPetalquot-Sandals/

Fairytale Fashion

Howdy, folks. Long time instructablizer, here... first time forum poster. I recently started working at Eyebeam on a project called Fairytale Fashion. It's focusing on demonstrating how to use some techy, geeky staples and apply them to fashion. We're making clothing that transforms, changes color, responds to touch, body heat, and even the weather. The project is being run by Diana Eng. You might remember her from Project Runway or her book Fashion Geek. Every week until the end of December we'll be releasing videos documenting our experiments, providing tutorials, and showing you how you can be a champion fashion geek and make fantasy fashion a reality. We're trying to involve as many people as possible; asking for design ideas, getting feedback our work, making sure people can build off of what we make. It would be awesome if you had any input, designs you'd like to see, or ideas on cool fashions to look at and reference and posted them on our blog. Here are the first couple episodes:

Anti/Surveillance Fashion Show at Maker Faire

Constantly under the lens of the camera, fashion is a natural form in which to explore the relationship between surveillance and culture. How are we watched? How do we watch?  How do we present ourselves to the eyes of the world? I'd like to introduce a fashion show being organized for Maker Faire San Mateo, May 22&23 2010, sponsored by Noisebridge (a hackerspace in San Francisco that I am a founding member of).  We are showcasing wearables that can be used for surveillance or to thwart surveillance. Full details are here, and that page will be updated with more information and a list of participants as they are finalized. You can also email fashion@synthesize.us with specific questions.

Anybody ever been to a fashion show? I need some tips...?

A group I'm in has set goals for this year, and one of them is to host a fashion show.  We know where to host it, how to get a store to lend us clothes, how to set up the room, music etc., but we are puzzled as to what happens in a fashion show- what happens first, last etc.  Any brochures from the store?  Does an employee have to come out and comment?  If you've ever been to one, please describe it as best as possible.

Need to polish tan leather fashion boots.

I have a pair of Steve Madden (very expensive) knee length, platform fashion boots. They have never been worn, but they have been moved several times. They are made of a regular smooth leather, but have some light scratches (which look lighter than the rest of the boot). I want to polish them for resale, but don't want to have the scratches turn out dark. Please advise, M

Is the word "neat" old fashioned?

I'm about to write an English press release for my product CameraClip. English is not my first language. I would like to use the word "neat' to emphasize that the product is small, smart and cheap. Is "neat" an old fashioned word in this context? If so, what alternatives could I use? Hope to hear from you all.

fashion photography? Answered

I'm trying to shoot dresses on a dressform right now. (live models later). I'm thinking that the mirrorless camera sound like it may be a good option for me. Also, I'm a beginner so would I be correct in looking into that for an option?

I can't find the contests who are currently closed but open for voting in the new contests page. ...is it just me? Right now I think there is the Fashion contest only, but I can't find it anywhere. The only way for me to go to the Fashion contest page is going to one of the entries and click on the Vote! button. If I am not the only one who doesn't see it, it's hard for people to vote.
