Photography: Esther Boller (myself).
Model: Carly Starnes
I had my first fashion class during my spring quarter at school, and the class was Intro to Fashion Design. For our final project we had to design and make a garment inspired by an abstract painting. The goal was to create a garment that reflected the shape, color percentage, and overall mood of the painting that we chose. I chose the below painting by Clive Watts.
In my class for The Sewing Party I will be teaching how to draft and sew these circular panels. If it's something that you'd like to learn you can sign up here!
The last part of our project was to do a photo shoot of someone wearing our garment to add to our portfolio book. I took these photos and my lovely friend Carly modeled for me. Overall this was such a refreshing and fun project for me! I'm not sure how many hours went into this project from start to finish, but I basically lived in the Fashion Building for the last two-three weeks of school.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
