Last year I decided to take the challenge of designing and making my high school prom dress. Without any training on neither sewing nor design I got my self into a big project. At the end all the hard work was worth it. I didn’t just enjoy my prom night feeling beautiful with my gown, but I learned so much about sewing, beading and pattern making during the process. This was my final sketch:

A more detailed look at the beading…
This has been my biggest project as an aspiring fashion designer until now. Now that I’m actually learning at school about what I love, I hope to be making much more. The sad thing was I forgot to take a complete view picture of myself wearing the dress, but I’ll be having a photo shoot soon and hopefully will be uploading those later.
Its been a long time since I last posted because I haven’t had the time because there has been too much thing going on in my life and this next work took a loooooong time. So for this second partial evaluation I was supposed to draw 10 fashion figures that include all the different textiles I’ve been taught throughout the semester (Jeans, checkers, leopard, transparencies, taffeta, sequins, lace and ‘capitoneado’) and applying the different techniques: watercolor, prismacolor, chartpak, gel pens, liquid paper, and others. The idea was to make some kind of fashion ad campaign. My collection was inspired by flamenco which is Spain’s traditional dance, which I practice and is my favorite.
Hope you liked it :). May it all be for His glory.
Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai are the designers of this beautiful brand I love. They both graduated from Parsons in 2003 and have been working together ever since. They find their inspiration from vintage collections, their personal style and natural objects.
It is kind of evident my love for their clothes since I couldn’t shrink down the number of pictures because I love them all! I guess the reason why I like Vena Cava is because it’s totally my style, simple designs enhanced by subtle details and elegant fabrics.
