Lycra: Future Designers

Lycra Future Designer is a contest for fashion students all around the country; this is the first time it took place in Mexico. As freshman in the fashion design career, it was obligatory to participate. We were meant to design a lingerie ensemble with the theme of our choice but inspired in the modern woman. This is my final sketch:

I was inspired by the inner structure of the leaves. I related how the lingerie is the support for the woman’s body as so is the structure of the leaves.

Quinciañera Cake

This is a fondant cake made by my little sister for her friend’s 15th birthday party.

A closer look…

The process…

These are my mom’s hands, she helped my sister giving the rose petals a realistic texture using a sponge.

Isn’t it beautiful? This was the first fondant cake she ever made and the first payed job she ever had. Unfortunately I didn’t get to taste it.

Art Exhibition: ¿Aisle or Window? by Hugo Garza

On December 8 was the inauguration of Hugo Garza’s latest art exhibition with the title: ¿Aisle or Window? The artist does his work while sitting in an airplane and flying up in the sky. He began doing this because it is an extraordinary way of using the time he has in the hundreds of flights he has to take for his job as a business man. I really admire this artist, I’ve never seen something similar and its just amazing how he can manage to find a way to do what he loves in spite of the big and hard demands of his job. This was the invitation to the opening event in the art gallery ‘La Maquina’ in Monterrey, Mexico.

This is a painting called “Egolanding”. If you take a close look you will find the artist’s profile.

More pieces.

A friend of mine holding the flyers.

I encourage you to check out this artist. He’s about to reach the 1000th on-plane art piece (meaning almost a thousand flights).

Here’s the web site:

Drawing with an eraser

This is something I draw during a summer course I took this summer in San Antonio, Texas. I was experimenting with the technique of filling up all the paper with charcoal and then drawing by taking it of. I really enjoyed it, the best part was getting dirty.

Johanna Blakley: Lessons from fashion’s free culture – TED

As I was stumbling I got to a video with the title:

Johanna Blakley: Lessons from fashion’s free culture

I found this really interesting, Blakley explains how there is no copyright protection in the fashion industry. Here’s the link to the video:

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment & Design, Ideas Worth Spreading. I have watched some of their videos, which are conferences from people in those industries with a ‘idea worth spreading’. I really enjoy them, I hope you do as well.

These are pictures taken by me of some of my friends wearing garments made by me. These are just random pieces, they’re not meant to be cohesive since they were made with no final purpose other than curiosity and experimenting.

His Glory

One thing that amazes me is sun rays coming trough the clouds. These are pictures I took a while ago and I found them as I was browsing through my computer.

Psalm 19:1 – The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
