Just one more week. One more week until judging. One more week until we’re finally finished with our senior collection. Seven more days of caffeine fueled sleep deprivation and endless nights of hand appliqueing, lacing, cording and 90’s pandora playlists…
We’ve spent almost five weeks on the FIT BFA fashion show now. The final due date for the first look will be this coming Monday, and yet none of us can seem to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
When we’re working long hours with very little sleep in between, we all have our niches that get us through the night. Some of us smoke and drink coffee heavily to stay awake. Others take bar breaks and get straight back to work with a blissful buzz. While I may be guilty of the former and the latter, I always turn on Nine Inch Nails, or anything Trent Reznor through my favorite sub-amplified headphones. Many find it hostile and uneasy to listen to, but it gets my blood pumping, much like working out. Perhaps the hostility gives me the will to conquer the difficulties of foundation construction. Mr Reznor helps me cope with how burnt out I can become.

Mood board for my senior collection titles HAVOC. and some photos I used as inspiration. Perhaps eventually I’ll go into more detail about my inspiration for the collection, but for now I’d rather you draw your own conclusions.
It’ll be a long few days, but when look number one is finally complete, we’ll finally get to move on to our second: the Cotton ensemble!
Here’s a little insight into the Intimate Apparel Senior class. We may make all the draping on bust forms and nights spent slaving over knickers and corsets until security forces us out of the building look like a grand ole time, but trust that this is all the product of zero sleep and overall delirium.
…Enter C714 at your own risk.
