After months of sewing late at night, peeling the skin off my fingers and holding in the tears of doubt and anxiety, I have completed by look book for my senior collection.
I am incredibly proud of the end result and I anticipate to have these shots printed and presented for my portfolio.
I shot the look book with my good friend and model, Crystal Garcia.
Let’s have a look at the process work:
I wanted to create the PERFECT HUMAN based on different materials including vinyl and neoprene. I wanted to work with puzzle pieces and how muscles work are aligned with the body.
LOOK 1: Asymmetrical Neoprene Jacket with Knit Sleeves & Collar
Wide Dome Paneled Pant with structured leg.
LOOK 2: Open Shoulder Mesh Dress with Flounce Skirt with Vinyl Trim
LOOK 3: Jersey Stretch Cotton Open Shoulder Dress

I can finally say that I am proud of the work that I have done last semester at FIT. From balancing 9 classes and working my part time job, and trying not to lose my sanity, I admit that I have the willpower to keep going.
I am extremely proud of my work so far and I am honored to have these pieces photographed for my portfolio. Each piece is designed under the sportswear specification and I wanted to focus on color to make the eyes dance.
Sportswear is a category in fashion that is easily the most diverse market to design for. I want to challenge myself into making every day looks a little more special.
I’m now working on my collection for the CFDA as well as a few pieces being made during my 6th semester here at FIT.
It’s a lot of pressure, but I’m pushing myself in order to graduate with a phenomenal portfolio.
