Rock Werchter – it’s all about the Party Waistcoat

Rock Werchter is a 4 day Music Festival held in the little village of Werchter in Belgium, not too far from Brussels. My personal music highlights, to name but a few, were Florence + the Machine, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Howard, Wolfmother and Noel Gallagher & the Flying Birds.

I had been busy in my sewing studio for the 2 months leading up to Rock Werchter, creating some suitable “Party / Festival” clothes. With time quickly evaporating, I packed a bag of sewing essentials as we departed London, so I could do some last minute sewing on the waistcoats during the 5 hour drive to Werchter. Luckily I wasn’t asked to drive the car, as I may have struggled to sew on buttons and change gears at the same time!

Here is a selection of photos taken at the festival show casing “Made By Nomes” outfits. I would like to say a big thanks to my models – Angus, Dylan and Hendrick – you guys rock!

I must say that our Party Clothes were very cool – the show stopper was definitely the “Party Waistcoat” teamed with the “Party Pant”. Dylan and Angus had plenty of people stop and want to have their photos taken with them…. not sure if i should rename the clothes to “Festival Pants” and “Festival Waistcoat”?!

I also have a few pictures on my twitter feed @MadeByNomes and on facebook.com/MadeByNomes
