And by that I mean my, um, “art”, if I should dare to call it that. With the help of the amazing Professor Galanos, instructor of Fashion Art for Fashion Designers my so called “art” went from this:
- triangles for dresses
- stick arms and legs
- dots for eyes
- no hands or feet
- I can’t even explain the hair…
No, that wasn’t actually a drawing from my six year old brother, that unfortunately belongs to me. Only a mere 5 weeks ago, this was all I was capable of doing.
By the miracle teachings of Professor Galanos, my capabilities in the art department has hugely succeeded into this:
- Better for that sad excuse for a dress design in every way possible. Check.
Dreams do come true! Living proof right here. Of course I have a lot of improvement and work ahead of me but this was two weeks ago, after only three weeks of classes! I can’t wait till I advance through the rest of this course to see my new and improved drawings blow my past stick figures out of the water. Until then, you’ll just have to bare with me through the upcoming weeks facing and eventually overcoming new drawing techniques.
In addition to my classwork, I am also working on projects at home. At the moment I’m working on a Proenza Schouler A/W 10 inspired dress from scratch, like literally, no pattern, or anything! I did everything on my own and it’s almost done. And also I’m revamping a Michael Kors striped sweated I found at a thrift store. In between projects I do favors for family and friends and fix or alter clothes for them, I’m pretty much their personal seamstress. For example, I have to sew on Nintendo and Mario patches onto my boyfriend’s varsity-style jacket, hem pants for my mom, and turn a jewel neckline dress into a v-neck dress. So much work! But I love being busy with something I love. Reading six chapters of Pride and Prejudice and mastering logarithms… Being busy with that is a whole different story.
Until next week!
