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

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.
It has been officially a year since the passing of my grandfather and I have decided to redo my CFDA portfolio and give it a different layout to refine it.
Over the course of 7 weeks, I have designed a Collection for the CFDA. A lot of time and effort has been put into this collection during a vulnerable time in my life.
I am incredibly proud of what I have accomplished and I am ready for the world to see my ability and versatility as a designer.For the entire collection, go to Designsbykika.com
Be Prepared for my CFDA Collection. Something very personal and different from the usual Designs by KIKA.
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.
