Tartan Kawaii x DiDepux Collaboration Project

Hey Cute things!
I have got some exciting news to share, I and the talented graphic designer and Jewellery maker Di Depux got together with a Collaboration You most likely have seen the finished products on Esty and Facebook!
Shop here!


I have been wanting to be able to have something, that shows my love for Japanese fashion inspired from Harajuku and Japanese street fashion, something that would make a outfit complete.I know, I can doodle ideas but was lost when it came to making this dream into a product or a reality. I also had lots of ideas but not the know how to create them.



It was not till I became a customer to the Esty shop that belongs to Di Depux and taking a leap of faith by asking what they thought of my own ideas. I have been knocked back and rejected before. So I was ready to take it again. However for once I got a reply of interest I was not only shocked but overjoyed that the fact some one took an interest!!!


So over the past few weeks of chatting with the lady from Di Depux and watching the items progress. Seeing the sneak peek and then to the product that will be sold only at Di Depux on Esty,It has been very exciting! I have been so happy to be part of this collaboration and think we make a great team!
So I wanted to share you the progress from start to finish!



The idea was 3 hearts, Trinity hearts . My past love for all things Kawaii  as a child , My present obsession and the dreams of Kawaii that are yet to come, the future! 



My Doodles that I minded to keep and scan in.  I wanted to have this as a necklace as I feel a necklace can give a bigger statement than any other piece of jewellery when it comes to fashion.
And what better way to have your own name on it!


As you can see the design developed really fast. From my imagination and drawings it didn't take long to create the sample of the product. Which when I  saw this,I was so excited ! My dreams of this project were coming true.


 I loved the fact we tried to get the font to match my drawing on the last one sample in the picture.
After this is was time to pick out details such as colours and small touches.
When I saw the finished products I was in a Kawaii Dream, they look perfect it was like the Di Depux knew what I was after and saw my potential in the design. I was so happy.



These are the final pieces, You can even change the colours to your own personal liking and change the text to a name or word. How cute and cool huh?!

''Trinity Heart's'' Collaboration with Di Depux and online Blogger of all things Cute and Japanese, Tartan Kawaii.

Inspired by the trends and fashion from the streets of Harajuku and my life-long love of staying kawaii (cute in Japanese.), I came up with the idea to design an image to be able to express this through the use of Jewellery accessories.
The Hearts represent past fascination, present obsession and dreams of the future. This relates to the passion of Kawaii Culture from Japan. This is only available at Di Depux.''

This project means a lot to me as its proof that dreams can come true if you keep on trying- no matter how many knock backs you get. I really would love any of the Blog fans or friends who also adore Kawaii and J-fashion to get one of these necklaces! I  hope you have liked seeing the behind the scenes of the progress of my project and I cant wait to see you all wearing them!!
