any good detective has a nemesis out there, just one step ahead and always hatching evil plots. for STYLO i knew i wanted to make two looks, and i thought it would be really interesting to have the same kid playing both roles. whereas my detective look was classic, i wanted the villain look to be fashion-forward. i wanted a dramatic silhouette and to push the envelope a bit.
my villain resides in an ultramodern lair on top of a mountain. she is shadowy, angular, cunning. i used basic patterns sewn in new ways with interesting fabrics, and made a few accessories to complete the look. but oh man, the location was the icing on the cake!
