Its been almost 10 months since my words of fabrication have posted this site and yet so much has passed in that amount of time. First things first, I would like to wish this years bloggers and graduating class the best of luck in the show and the rest of the year. I have been very lucky and wish you all the best in your endeavors.
I found a job as a head designer for a private label exclusively for Village bridal and Boutique. I am working on a small collection for them of wedding gowns and betls. http://nasyadesigns.com/
I am also working for a web based accessories collection called ZP Atelier.
The biggest diffenece from the last year of school and now is the following…… LOL not to much actually. I still don’t sleep much, I’m in the studio all the time working and I actually have to juggle more then I did in school. But the best thing is that I get to create and be apart of a very important day and for that I wouldn’t trade anything.
I have attached pictures of pieces from the private label as well as the accessory line, only sold on line.
Hi there! Welcome to our knitwear posts!
You will soon have an idea what it’s being a knitwear student at FIT. I will share stories and, more importantly, videos!
Here is the first one!
It’s funny to see what we look like on camera… sorry, my English got bad, too nervous
This weekend has been fun………..(insert sarcastic tone here)
Monday the 7th, my professor told our class that this coming Monday (the 14th) we will have a fit model come in to fit our first garments. Everyone in the class looked at each other and exhaled a stressful sigh. I don’t think anyone was remotely ready for what our professor had to say. I am posting a video of the “Low Down”- or what we have to get done/should have done already. Although she is right, this is when reality hit.
Friday night: dinner with friends, classroom until midnight.
Saturday: buy cotton fabric, half day in the classroom finishing patterns, rest of the day at home doing homework. (Finished basting my first garment and ready to be fitted on Monday!!!)
Sunday: other homework and buying groceries…it is about time I eat something remotely healthy.
Besides fashion, I love to eat, I love to be creative with food and eat healthy as often as I can. The highlight of my weekend was going grocery shopping at Whole Foods. I spent about an hour and a half looking around and getting the things I “needed”, including vitamins, bringing my bill to $120. Pshhh…being healthy is expensive! Anyways, for dinner, I made what I would call a half burger. Ezekiel bread toasted, a little mustard, burger (gorgonzola and sun dried tomatoes mixed in the beef), sautéed onions, spinach and mushrooms to top it off. It was delicious!!! Then I made gluten free brownies for dessert and was pleasantly surprised by how yummy they were!
….2 hours later, I recognize how much time I have wasted being obsessed with food and realize it is time to get back to work. My Spanish midterm isn’t going to take itself and either is my U.S. History quiz! Back to studying!!!
