After many years of studying fashion from the vulnerable age of 16, I have learned the most valuable lessons in my life. Change is essential. And you should never feel obliged to do the same thing over and over again. In my early years, I’m was known for designing everything flashy and very pink. It’s time for me to break out of the mold and mature my aesthetic. I will continue to use color, but I want to experiment with new silhouettes that can be considered to be timelessly modern.
I wanted to pull inspiration from a dozen of things. Initially I wanted to combine my portfolio work with my CFDA and I came up with a few ideas. In my studies, I want to focus on human anatomy and what it is capable of. From mutilation, physical harm and body manipulation, a person can endure the most painful physical experiences of their lives, as well as emotional.
In my previous semester, I wanted to combine a mix of fabric weights as way to emphasis manipulation and body contouring, The different weights and structure can shape an item of clothing if it allows it to do so.
And last I was assigned to create an Image Algebra for my class. Lets break it down shall we?
SCIENCE =HUMAN BODY, ANATOMY
DISNTERGRATION=PHYSICAL BODY MANIPULATION, SLEF HARM
OUTER BODY=DRUGS, MANIPULATION FOR THE BRAIN
SONIC WAVES=PULSES, MOVEMENT IN CELLS IN THE BODY
HUMANOID+THE PERFECT HUMAN, ONE WHO CAN ENDURE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL PAIN WITHOUT RISKING IT’S OWN LIFE.
Now the next step is to play with my ideas and design concepts, bot clothing as suggested by my Professor, Jonathan Kyle Farmer.
