Hello Fashion Students
November is a time to gather up your artistic thoughts and to explore the unknown. As fashion students remember to look at the world through pink color sun glasses, romantic, cool and edgy. The history of textiles dates back more than three hundred years, it is the beginning and the end to the fashion industry. As designers we are constantely looking for the new look. Think of your textile as a person, textiles have a personality and a movement. Get to know how the textile is constructed and ask yourself, does this textile want to be a gown, pants, or a suit? Oddly enough it will answer you back.
I always said to my intern students, even a textile wants to be something.
