Garment 1 of 10 for my collection.
I finished this last night – and I am so satisfied with it!
I want to wear it all day, everyday.

- 100 % Virgin wool (same as the skirt, but the skirt is not in the collection! that was a school assignment)
- The vests’ hem ends just above the knee
- It has super high slits (my thoughts: so you can stick your hand into your trouser-pockets underneath = nice and also somewhat practical)
- The closure is a huge square that is attached with snap buttons

I love it from the side. And man, I just love high splits and how they move when you walk.

Thanks for looking ;)

To complete the outfit I will make white wide pants that are kinda similar to the ones I’m wearing – in silk or washed silk.
I was also planning to make a superbasic silktop – but as I was trying it on, I actually like it a lot with nothing underneath! Agree?
I’m gonna ask my mentor if I’m allowed to skip the top, and make my model show some skin.

Happy thanksgiving!! Lots of love.

so beautiful! i've been following for years and always knew you would make great clothing! if your mentor doesn't allow you to have it bare underneath, you could always a superfine mesh tank-- i think that would be really cool
Maria / Vanillascented- 25 November, 2012 at 21:40
Petra: You can't, unfortunately. I made it, and I'm not making stuff for sale! But I'm happy you asked.. :)
Petra- 25 November, 2012 at 16:59

This ensemble is amazing! You look hot. You've done such a great work. It's definitely a major minimalistic and edgy piece I'd love to have. And showing some skin is actually not bad! I think it looks more interesting that way rather than having sth underneath. Can't wait to see how you are going to do the pants. x Romi
Jenaly- 24 November, 2012 at 18:57
Wow. I love it. It really is amazing!!!
Gabrielle- 24 November, 2012 at 15:53

Carolinek: Jeg liker beskrivelsen din :D Karl: <3<3 Carly: Anyone can come!! I'll be selling tickets in desember! I'll tell you so you can buy it from me if you want ^_^ Oh and I want to study menswear because I think it's more interesting, and I like the style better etc etc. But I totally want to do womenswear in the end :) Just want to be more influenced by menswear! Rikke: Oh, thank you so much! Really appreciate it :) Don't mind sending out dion lee vibes, he is so good! :)

Lovely! You have such a great taste and talent!
Erika- 23 November, 2012 at 22:24
Hi! It´s beautiful! I´d make the huge square in other material, such as heavy white silk.Hugs!
Pia- 23 November, 2012 at 22:22
Hei! Først og fremst: wow! Du er utrolig flink. Jeg har bare et spm jeg håper du kan svare på: Hvor mye koster det å gå på parsons? Har lest en del på hjemmesiden deres men finner ikke noe ang kostnader osv. Om du evt har en link hadde det vært fint! Du er modig som lever drømmen din! Jeg heier på deg:-)

I love it love it love it. You're so talented!! I want your whole collection even if I don't know every piece. I'm sure I'll love it all. Is your whole collection in white?:) Love, Laura.
Sara- 23 November, 2012 at 16:50
ojj den var ju jättesnygg! verkligen, amazing! xx
Fey- 23 November, 2012 at 15:36
Awesome! I really love it, even the skirt! Do you sell some items? and where can I buy it?
WBNina- 23 November, 2012 at 15:27
Perfect minimalisme! Gleder meg til å se resten av kolleksjonen din :-)
Mija- 23 November, 2012 at 14:31
WOW ! So sad we can't buy it !!
ida- 23 November, 2012 at 13:34
You are soo talented! The design is amazing, love it. If you ever start your own label I'd probably buy every piece :)
Léonie- 23 November, 2012 at 11:40
oh myyy..this is SO good!
carolinek- 23 November, 2012 at 11:02
Fantastisk fint. Så Calvin Klein på 90 tallet meets Acne meets avant garde. NEI til noe under!! Da vil ikke det minimalistiske komme like mye til sin rett!!
Alexis- 23 November, 2012 at 11:01
Cool! I'd definitely wear this! Really like how it looks with the square bit open. The silk trousers you plan to make will look amazing with the wool. And I agree- nothing underneath looks great! Although I couldn't get away with that! Maybe a white bandeau top would look cool so you just see another straight line across the chest? Anyway, I'm sure your show will look fantastic- cant wait to see pics! X
Ida- 23 November, 2012 at 10:16
Herregud, så flink du er!! Jeg vil ha!!

congrats! you will be huge, you have a fine fine taste
Carly- 23 November, 2012 at 02:13
Oh, and question! Will regular peeps be allowed to attend the show or is it only for students and their family/friends? It'd be so nice to see your work in motion :)
Carly- 23 November, 2012 at 02:04
SUPER f-ing sexy. Yes to shirt underneath. Otherwise a really sexy wireless bra might be nice? Like Helle said, I would line up for this too, even in snow haha! If you decide to do menswear in your career..I'll be a bit sad..but then that won't stop me from buying the menswear stuff for myself :> Keep up these posts, loving it it bits! X
Karoline- 23 November, 2012 at 01:58

i love your style and ive been following you for a while now. nonetheless i think this one is too graphic and in theory quite good.

Rikke- 23 November, 2012 at 01:12
You are so talented, Maria! I just love to see how you work, the progress it self, and the results! The way you think of fashion is unique. I'm getting a few Dion Lee vibes, but your work is more minimalistic and delicate. Well done!
Helle- 23 November, 2012 at 01:11
Gorgeous.. I'll be standing in line when your first collection hits the stores! Glæder mig til at se mere af kollektionen.
joy.- 23 November, 2012 at 00:44
Wow! This looks amazing! If I could, I would buy it right away! I also think I prefer the long vest without a top underneath. Or maybe you can try something really sheer. Happy thanksgiving..
vasilieva- 23 November, 2012 at 00:42
