Pages from my CFDA Diary

Days after reviving my CFDA portfolio, I found my journal with very disturbing images and sketches that I have collected through out my winter break last year.

After the death of my grandfather, I had researched anatomy and the human body in general as well as Blood, LOTS OF BLOOD.

The more gore, the better.

I emotionally blocked myself from feeling pain, so I decided to view pain through the most morbid way possible.

Here are a few pages from my journal that best represent my process.

Introducing the 2016 Print Collection from Designs by KIKA

Whether you are a student or a designer, it’s important to hold more than one title. For myself, learning all the necessary skills to work in the industry is crucial in the final semesters left at FIT. Luckily I have been introduced to the programs that FIT offers in order to give me a preview of what I am expected to know for my future.

Never would I imagine that I could design more than just clothes, but actual textiles that can be used over and over for future aesthetic. I am grateful to see how much input I can give into my collections and have the control to do what I want with my own ideas.
