As the weeks pass by, I see how much I have accomplished so far.

A couple of months ago, I was insecure about my work and my ability to design. Now I can just pull out some muslin, drape any silhouette to my liking and it somehow comes out the way I envision it to look in my head.

So far, I am working on 3 looks for my Senior Thesis and I am a little overwhelmed.

I was not chosen to be featured in the Great Hall at my school, but I can not let that stop me from pushing myself in order to finish my thesis. I am looking forward to work on my photoshoot and have it featured here and on other social profiles.

Introduction to Senior Thesis Collection

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.

Slide 1

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.

Slide 1

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.

Slide 1

And last I was assigned to create an Image Algebra for my class. Lets break it down shall we?

SCIENCE =HUMAN BODY, ANATOMY

divided by

DISNTERGRATION=PHYSICAL BODY MANIPULATION, SLEF HARM

multiplied by

OUTER BODY=DRUGS, MANIPULATION FOR THE BRAIN

divided by

SONIC WAVES=PULSES, MOVEMENT IN CELLS IN THE BODY

equals

HUMANOID+THE PERFECT HUMAN, ONE WHO CAN ENDURE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL PAIN WITHOUT RISKING IT’S OWN LIFE.

Slide 1

Now the next step is to play with my ideas and design concepts, bot clothing as suggested by my Professor, Jonathan Kyle Farmer.
