The other day while organizing my portfolios, I came across one of my projects from college.
Often, I really cannot stand to look at my work until years later and then it all comes rushing back to me. These fashion illustrations were part of a project that would address the needs of a working woman ( Yes it was during the 80's- note those shoulder pads!) and I have always loved big city black and white style. As a child, I would visit fabric stores and dream of fabrics, notions, and sewing machines. (I will save this for another post dedicated to fabrics) Guess I would have been a perfect candidate for project runway, but then again, maybe not. Could I handle the pressure and all that scrutiny? Knowing what I know now, I think I would love it.
This project was a really satisfying one for me as I was about to move to the big bad apple and these dresses, coat dresses, I might add really came in handy for my interviews. My favorite memory was meeting my in-laws sporting the black and white glen plaid and I was even brave enough to wear red stockings. I have always admired classics with a twist. I need to feel part of the class, but a little artsy side needs that spark to really complete me. I call it the pve design way. Do you have a special way that completes your project to make it your very own?
