Final ideas for my Premiere Vision Paris collection 2011

Here are my final ideas for my Premiere Vision Paris collection 2011. For some of the tops I have used short puff ball sleeves, while others take on the shape of some of the armour. The neckline is wide and stands away from the neck. The geometric shapes on the tops will not be achieved by seams but I will sew a layer of fabric over the top.
