How romantic is that?! so we’ve found a easy step by step tutorial by the Lose Angeles based designer Justina Blakeney to show us how.
Step 1: You will need 4 screw hooks or S hooks if your ceiling has something you can hang the canopy. 1 spool of twine, and a long stick. Secure the stick & hang from the ceiling, then Find some beautiful sheets, sarongs or large piece of fabric, in any theme you like to go after, maybe you like the “English Victorian Garden” feel, or Asian Imperial City flair or like in the photo here we are going for the “Bohemian Moroccan” kind look. Drape over the fabrics of your choice and use some safety pins to lift up the front opening as shown in the photo below.

Step 2: Making heart shaped garland by Using the news paper to cut out various sizes of heart shapes or you can buy those heart shaped cake decoration paper, and string through with twine.

House of Givenchy’s Spring 2011 Couture show by Riccardo Tisci was full with traditional Japanese influenced Embroideries mix with anime robot details.

Riccardo has been a big fan of the Japanese robot toys since he was a kid and his fascinations about traditional Japanese costume’s cut, shape & embroideries, and the famous dancer “Kazuo Ohno” as play a big part in this collection. I am just so glad he done it in the way it not just the predictable “Kimono sleeves” or “Obi” waist belt details.
