Inspiration

I am currently designing a Spring Summer collection and I would love to keep you up to date with all the work I have been doing. My inspiration for this collection is taking the fabrics in religious representations (such as crochet and chiffon) and transforming them into modern geometric pieces that incorporate prints and fabrics specifically designed by me to create a wearable avant-garde pieces. As I will keep the actual pieces and illustrations as a surprise. Here are a few images that I have drawn inspiration from. Although it may seem that I was inspired by religious figures, but the truth is that I wanted to take the feeling of the delicate, “untouchable”, femininity and transforming in a way to create the allure of the woman that I would see wearing my clothes. Here is just a small amount of images from my research. I hope you enjoy it!

The Year In Review!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!! I can’t but be thankful for all the change that this year has brought to me. I started off the last year being on a boat in Dubai watching the fire works with acquaintances. I ended this year with my acquaintances being the closest friends of mine and we embarked together on trips to different countries and continents together. And I can definitely say that those trips where the best I have been on. From Miami, to Punta Cana and West Virginia. I will always remember the crazy way we arrived to Punta Cana where it took us 24 hours to get there rather than 6 hours. The time where we got into our cars one weekend, and randomly went to Cracker Barrel and white-water rafting. And the amazing weekend we spent in Miami. Also the trips I took along the year to Milan, Venice, Bologna, Pavia, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Washington D.C.
This year also means a lot as it is the year I graduated from University and the year where I embarked on the journey of following my dreams and moved to Italy to pursue a career in fashion design. I recently realized that I have lucky streak with odd numbered years. I was born in 1991, graduated high school in 2009 graduated university in 2013.
This blog also turned 1 year old in September. With 62,000 hits this year and views from 141 countries. I would like to end this year by thanking everyone the good people for making me a happier person and for the bad people that I have met that taught me not to care as much anymore and that my happiness is the most important thing.
I can’t wait and see what the next year has to offer!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Here are some pictures that summarize the year:
