There was a Fashion Show put on at the University by the fashion design students this Friday. I honestly didn't think it would be very large production or that it would garner much attention. I was pretty wrong. The fashion show was a very put together event and the students obviously put a lot of hard work into their collections. The show was named Luminous and featured three different collections; Casual, Evening, and Bridal. I was really glad I attended the show, it is really amazing what students in my own University are doing. I never thought much of the fashion design school here because it was in the Natural Sciences department along with biology and computer science. It seemed out of place or not an entirely existing program. This is hardly true because graduates from this program go on the work for Dior and Vera Wang. Soon the program will be moving into it's own school of Human Ecology. It seems like a really interesting path to take. I think that it is something I would enjoy doing, but I am really unsure. More unsure of my abilities than my passion for it. People have always acted like I have no fashion sense whatsoever. They always come to me to draw outfits, not put them together. I am still very passionate about getting into Animation, but I think this is a very fascinating option.
Upon my new interest that the show sparked I went home and drew some of my own fashion sketches. I have been sketching clothes for a while before, but I never really took it seriously. Here are a few of my sketches:
I drew out my dream haircut. I am not sure how a hairdresser would act if I brought this up to them and said I wanted this exact cut. An asymmetrical, uneven, A-line long bob.
