Wednesday May 1st was the Future of Fashion BFA Fashion Show at FIT in New York. One of the looks in my collection was shipped from Milan to be in the show! Out of over 200 fashion design graduates of the class of 2013, 90 were chosen from the specializations of Knitwear, Sportswear, Lingerie, Special Occasion, and Children’s wear to have their looks walk down the catwalk at the show. I was extatcic to be able to be a part of the show in New York all the way from Milan.

Last week we had a meeting with our critic Professor Debora Sinibaldi to show her the progress of our collections and discuss any changes or additions that need to be made. My 4 looks are all getting much closer to being finished as the show approaches. The FIT Milan Senior Show will be Wednesday May 29th! Here are some photos from the critique, a ‘sneak peak’ if you will of the development of my collection. I am not going to explain in detail the photos because I do not want to give to much away!!
The past couple of days I have been working nonstop to get one of my garments ready in time to send it to NYC for the FIT BFA Fashion Show. This year they are representing some garments from the FIT Milan program in the show! It is a huge honor to be able to show my garments in both the New York and Milan shows. I was able to finish my first look just in time to be shipped off to NYC. Heres a sneak peek ….
This look is an oversized knit sweater with a pointed stitch that I designed on the ShimaSeki electronic knitting machines. The sweater is made of 100% mercerized cotton that was donated to me from FiloScozia. After the sweater is knit I hand dyed and hand painted it. The tights in the final look below are made from the print that I developed in my screen printing class in Lake Como. You can look to my creative portfolio to better understand the concept behind my collection:)
