HEEYYY lovelies x
So I officially finished my portfolio to get into University for Fashion & Design!! Woop! I’m so happy and so excited for the review session invite, and there’s actually one more assignment that they’re supposed to send me along with the invite but that happens in April. I’m really curious as to know what it is! Any who, I’ve done some serious damage to my sleeping pattern. Everyday I’ve been waking up at 2-3pm, and sleep at around 7am. It’s really scary because I’ve gotten too used to this :S
If you haven’t seen any pics on my Instagram, I’ve actually been updating it like crazy in regards to the process of what finances my portfolio. Here’s a few photos!!
DEFINITELY had a lot of this goin’ on… you know, dehydration, and like dozens of cups of coffee and constant scribbling in my journal to keep me sane and “organized.”
I was assigned to initially make a journal on local Canadian fashion retailers, but I decided to add in an international retailer journal as well because that’s really where my heart’s at. Plus, they’re funner to research. I learned. So. Much. From this. Fashion marketing is not ever going to be my forte; I can’t imagine having to constantly write reports and articles on brands, collections, specific pieces, big names in fashion, and just… you know, define today’s fashion in a bunch of words. I totally wish I had the ability to full-fledgedly enjoy that aspect, but I do get very lazy and am so tempted to just use slang and slack it off to get my point across. We’ll leave this to the experts and real fashion geeks
For this, I had to compile two finished art pieces in any medium and talk about why I included them, not a description.
Some more article work… See anything familiar as of recent from this blog?
Some of the stuff I included in my second piece for the “2 Finished Pieces + Brief Analysis” part. In total, there were 9 of these card drawings and I ended up putting them on a pink cardboard with cheetah print for the background (duh!!!). It looked like a mini collection for what I’ve been diggin’ in 2013. Oh, and I used watercolour, HB pencil, and some Copics.
Before adding in all that extra detail on the pink board.
I totally forgot to take pictures of the clothes I made, but they included a grey a-line dress, a black kimono jacket made of suede, a grey cropped turtleneck muscle tank, a sheer white button-up blouse, deep plum trouser pants (there’s a couple of photos on Instagram), and some older clothes I made as a noob like a neon green circle skirt and one of the dresses I made to for my grad photos so I wouldn’t have to buy another one.
Thanks for all the dozens and tons of new follows, and stuff!!! I really, REALLY appreciate it! Wish me luck on my portfolio review! I’ll make a post on how it goes and will definitely be Tweeting about it like nuts.
I’ll put up a new blog post soon that doesn’t have to do with school!! Hehee.
