Photography Not Allowed!

Every

Friday I volunteer at the Sharon Art Studio. Today I brought my camera on our trip to the De Young Museum. These are the pictures I took using 100 Color Film on a Pentax camera..

India, My Love.

April 22, 2010

The colors, the colors really catch my eye. I also love the intricate details such as beads sewn on to the fabric to create a textured pattern. If I were to do a india inspired line of clothing then I would incorporate the bold colors with simple colors like black, white or grey. I would incorporate the sheer fabric and long scarves but I would add more folds and form fitting features. 

The jewelry from India is also very note-worthy. Most of the pieces i have seen from india are very unique. They are so beautiful that they would easily be paired with a simple black dress and there you go– an elegant evening outfit. I love the fact that they use real stones and crystals, I believe that crystals emit energy that effects the person wearing it. Right now I am wearing rose quarts, turquoise and tourmaline.

Art Show Party @ FGW

April 20, 2010

One fine evening whilst I rendezvous at a near-by art show/party a man with a camera approached me. He said he had a fashion blog and wanted to know what I was wearing, “ummm… english school boy shoes and the rest if from goodwill… or borrowed from my friends” I replied. Here is the sight: http://fordiedinosaurs.blogspot.com/?zx=4641f28172cd4d5a

Red

The other day I was looking at how Victorian people wore clothes with a lot of buttons. I took that idea and combined it with a red flower. this is what I came up with…

…I want those shoes so bad!

1920’s

April 20, 2010

Recently, all aspects of my information rich environment has simultaneously been focused on the 1920’s jazz era. I am in love! It is great! First off, I learned about it in my history class, then we read the Great Gatsby in English, and then in tech, I worked on the show ‘Fiorello’. Fiorello is set in the 1914-1920 for the first act and then in the second act it is 1920-1925…ish. I had a great deal of fun. I designed and made 17 flapper dresses… holy cow! What a job, I could never have done it without my lovely assistant, Araceli. I also designed and made a separate, unique flapper dress for the lead of the flapper scene. Her dress was more in depth and fancy.

As I continued to look into the fashion of that era I saw the classic beauty for what it really was and thus decided that it is going to be the next big thing in the fashion universe. In particular I see the low wasted cuts and flowing, loose fits becoming very popular.

Separate from my ‘Fiorello’ adventure, here is a sketch of a dress that I thought up. Inspired by the 1920’s… of course.
