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:)
