So, I've been loving my design classes so far and I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of what I've been up to in class. Well, we've been learning all sorts of new things like drawing techniques and what not. Our final project is an entire collection. I haven't really asked how many looks we need for an entire collection but I can hear Kelly Cutrone from The City telling Whitney Port she needs about 24 or 26 looks (I think, it's been so long), so that's what I'm going with. Last week when I learned how to draw a few garments and I found some really cool fabric prints online, I kind of got inspired and went a little crazy.
I have about half a collection done that I'm pretty happy with. The neon yellow is for the crop top, not the skirt/dress. I know in the picture the crop looks greenish. I was playing with the colors and never got it to that neon color. But yeah, I actually haven't found that fabric for the skirt/dress yet but I'm hoping I will soon. I say skirt/dress because I haven't decided what it is yet I just know I love the black and bright yellow! Anyway, I'm learning a few more techniques this week. These are just a few looks I designed last week for my PERSONAL collection.
Yeah, I say personal collection because everything that I've designed is something I want. And whether I make everything myself or have someone make them for me, I will have all these items in my closet in the next few weeks. I'm not planning on selling or doing anything with it. I wouldn't even know how all that works or anything. But everything I've designed is something I see myself wearing and want NOW!
So, what do you all think? I have a lot more but I didn't want to show everything, these are just my favorite pieces. Now, don't be too brutal if you hate it. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but HEY! I'm barely starting out and I'm still trying to find out if this is something I see myself doing. I would love y'all's input though. Either in the comments below or you can email me in the about me tab. Right now, the only criticism I'm getting is coming from my friends and family and even though I agree completely (lol) I would still want to know what you all think.
Oh and above is another little sneak peek of the fabrics I'm working with this week. I haven't gotten in the zone crazy inspired like I did with the other prints but I will and fast. Can you tell how much I love them prints? :P Well, I hope you all have an amazing rest of your Tuesday. Tomorrow, I will be posting on my best friends baby shower from two weekends ago so stay tuned.
