OH NO, the end is almost near… what a travesty! Since it’s the last week of FIT, our final projects our now on their way to being completed. As thrilling and exiting it is to be finishing our dresses (Manual Pattern Making and Sewing) and completing our Self Portraits (Advertising and Graphics Design Portfolio), I still can’t seem to fathom how life without FIT is going to be. Maybe I’ll go spend some much needed time with the polar bears in Canada, yep, that should do.
In my Advertising class, we’re working with unconventional mediums to crete a self portrait –With a artistic fashion that will be used to express ourselves. For my self portrait, I chose to work on the computer, since that it typically what I love to use (No, I don’t only use it to check my Facebook and watch the Gossip Girl seasons over and over again).
Anywho, our teacher said that a lot of the designing we may use in the future will revolve around drawing it out first. So I started out my concept by drawing it out. Soon after the completion of the physical product, I will scan it and fill it in on the computer, and use words to illustrate the background.
I am SOOOO excited about the Pattern Making class, it’s crazy! We’re finally making a dress, that we can actually wear! Well, it depends on the size of the mannequin, and luckily, I practically chose the right size at the beginning! Prior to the creation of our dresses out of our personal fabrics, we made it out of muslin –to nail down the basics. I am so utterly obsessed with Nicole’s silhouette. It consists of the sweetheart neckline top, with a basic skirt and peplum detailing.
Nicole's Muslin creation!
Some designs our class has produced!
After my galavant to MOOD the other day, I decided that this bright printed fabric –which I love– is the perfect cotton print for my upcoming dress creation. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, because, on the train… I kind of got lost and ending up somewhere uptown in GOD knows where. Fortunately I got home safe and sound.
Later, on the weekend, I went by MOOD to pick up my gorgeous fabric and some mesh/tulle for the detailing… Did I mention that I changed my whole design? The new and improved dress design consists of a deep V sleeveless top, with a half to botton cut in the back. All the cuts and holes with be filled in with the $45/1yrd expensive black tulle that I bought. It’s totally worth it though, I expect my dress is going to be FAB-O. As they say, “If you love it, flaunt it!”… And I definitely love this print!
My amazing print.
