Joseph Font Haute Couture

DIY Hosiery Part Three

Josep Font's haute couture collection helped us complete our trilogy of DIY hosiery ideas. The first we picked up from our Network Partner, Style Bubble, who cut carefully spaced holes into a pair of tights as she saw them in a shop window. A few days later we saw Network Partner, The Coveted, dip dyed her tights so that they resembled those seen in the Christian Lacroix haute couture runway show. And now we've come up with our own idea for runway-worth hosiery you can whip up at home--the Josep Font way. Perhaps those printed tights you've stocked up on over the season's are sitting in a pile in one drawer or another and have yet to be realized as having DIY potential. After all, they've already so much going on. Well, whip out that glue gun and go to town. In Font's show, floral patterns were made couture by way of same-color stones. The result is intense eye candy, the kind that might just make passersby feel like they've taken hallucinogenic drugs. That's what fashion is for, right?! These tights are pretty wild but we're sure a couture-loving chicster or two will be up for the challenge. We can already imagine them worn with jean cut-offs and black Doc Martins. How nineties would that be?
