Shipping my Knitwear off to NYC for the BFA Fashion Show

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:)

Photo Journal: Catching Up with a trip to Torino!




 Spring is the time where we come out from underneath the cozy covers that we have been hiding under for the winter and breath in the first breath of warm, sweet air. I am just now waking up after hibernating through the dreary, wet and cold winter.  I have a back log of photos on my computer from these last few months of travels, field trips, trade shows and experiences that I will try to share over the next few weeks.

 But when last we left off, I had a little time on my hands to take a day trip to the lovely city of Torino.

The Fashion Institute of Technology 2013 Graduates

The FIT website has posted photos and bios of all of the FIT 2013 Fashion Design Graduates!  We all wrote the bios and sent them in along with the photos.  It is a type of yearbook if you will.  They have a special section for the Milan students.  Enjoy:)

On another note, I finally received my dyes that I ordered for my collection!  They were stuck in customs for quite some time but now they are here and I just cant wait to get started with them.  I’ll keep you all posted with progress photos.
