I've never talked about my collection EE: Experience/Escapade before here and I think it needs to be explained in order for people to really understand the meaning behind it.
experience |ikˈspi(ə)rēəns| :
An event or occurence that leaves an impression
This collection is based on the meaning of the word 'experience' itself. I think this collection is a bit vague yet dreamy? It's about that one trip to that really beautiful holiday house in the woods, somewhere so serene it feels like you're not on earth. It's how you see all these beautiful textures in nature and how the sun plays a big part in creating it. It's about that experience. This photo easily sums up that explanation I just gave you:I've been super obsessed with transparent things like perspex, tracing paper, or simply chiffon and organza; it's just mind blowing. What's even crazier is the fact that more than half of the animals on earth is TRANSPARENT. Say what? It is so amazing as to how every little detail of their transparency is used for camouflage or as a trap. My thesis last semester was based on these very beautiful creatures and somehow I got to learn more about structure and balance in design out of all this. Strange, huh?
Enough with reminiscing, let's get to the fun part!
This is a little something I created as an inspirational mood board for my final collection. The background is a collage of all the transparent animals and high-fashion water photography, I hope you can make sense as to what's going on with the wallpaper, haha. And of course, a little tech drawing of what I have in store this semester.
And a really dodgy photo of a toile I'm wearing. Please excuse the low-res photo.
I can't wait to finish this course and die in bed for the next 3 months, resurface with a beard and rock the fashion world!!! I'll post more pics once I get all my garments done: )
Wish me luck! x
