All posts about “Sewing”

This is the third and final part of a series of posts recalling my going back to school and today I’ll be wrapping up and giving you a glimpse of what’s in store for the future.

One of the biggest reason I wanted to go back to school was to get help creating and launching my project. This special year was truly a blessing because it gave me time to learn, experiment and practice my creative skills something that would have been hard to do on my own.

Now that I’ve showed you all the creative process behind the making of my finale collection, let’s talk about the more practical aspect of the project.

So, at first, the main question was: how do I get to live a creative life and be part of the fashion world, while staying aligned with my ethical conscience without relying on a lot of financial help?

As much as I love the creative process behind the fashion industry, it’s not without its problems. Factories are overproducing, wasting a lot of natural ressources and treating human lives badly.
This is not something I want to support and be part of.
And let’s not forget that it has been increasingly difficult for new independent designers to bypass the system and make it on their own. Producing a whole collection yourself isn’t really financially viable nowadays.

But there’s a solution!

This is the second part of a serie relating the story behind my going back to school and creating a fashion collection in just a few months.

A big part of the project was designing and actually creating the clothes for the collection. When that was done, it was a great relief but certainly not the end of the project.

About last year…

Hey, it’s been a long time!

You may have noticed that it has been quite a while since something new appeared around here. In fact, I have been silent for pretty much all of 2016, crazy!
However, after this hiatus, my new year resolution for 2017 is to come back to blogging and sharing my projects!

But before we start with new directions and what’s ahead, let’s focus first on what happened last year.

Lesson learned on the fold

Here’s the tale of my latest school project and the lessons learned while sewing it.

Last week, I had the presentation for the latest design we did at school. And boy, was it a hectic week!

Now that calm and a little free time has been restored, I’m excited to finally show you the final result.

On-the-fold-5

Here’s a look at the first real project produced in my experimenting class.

If you’ve been following this space closely, chances are you have already seen a few glimpses of a school project I’ve started at the beginning of the school year.
It was recently finished and presented, so now the time has finally arrived to show you the finished result!

The assignment was to create a wearable object inspired by a geometric form. This work was based on the circle and the feeling it creates for me.

Crafty spirit project

Want to see another fashion school project? This one is an accessory but was very fun to do and there’s braiding involved… 🙂

Hey! I’ve got a new project ready to share with you!
It’s one of my favourite from all the latest creations from fashion school and it’s not even a garment. 😉

Crafty spirit - 1

If you’re a fine observer, you might have noticed a round shaped pouch that complimented the look of one outfit during my first fashion show. Well, turns out it was another school project that got repurposed. Why not use everything that’s available? 😉
