And The Work Continues..

In my previous post (here), I talked about the working progress of our graduation portfolios, but on top of that, we’re also working on our exhibition/graduation garments! Each student found inspiration from our trip to Paris¬†and as a class came up with a concept for our designs. We’re still in the beginning stages of putting our patterns onto fabric, but I’m super excited to see how everyone interpreted the concept and put their own twist to it. And I think that’s the most interesting part about this project, since every single of one us are so different, to have one common theme and constructing garments individually to be shown as a collection. There’s only a few weeks left until graduation, so we’ll all definitely be breaking night till the completion of our portfolios and garments!

Here’s a sneak peak of what we’ve been working on!

Even with the amount of work we have, I made the time this weekend to enjoy the sunset at Piazza Michelangelo which overlooks the entire city of Florence. The view was breath-taking, and reminded me of why I love Florence so much..

Who needs a vacation when you live in a city with a view like this?!
