Definitely one of the most tedious projects I bestowed upon myself. My wedding collection was inspired by teacups. I didn’t really know how to begin painting so when I went home for Christmas break, I asked Tito Dadz (my mentor in painting using water-colour) if he could help me. For 3 days, I went to Victorias City (1-2 hours away from Bacolod City) so that we could paint together. Eventually his friends (who were also painters) decided to help in the process. I learned so much from them in terms of what paint is best, what brands to buy, how to manage my time more efficiently, etc. I’m very thankful for all the help and support that I got for this project. It’s truly something I made with a lot of love.
These are only some of the sketches that I did back when I was in Fashion Illustration 3. In that class we had to design 6 wedding gowns, 6 Grooms’ suits, 6 ring bearer attires, 6 flower girls, a 6 pc lingerie collection and a 6 pc Holiday collection. Since I don’t have the final sketches for all of these, I decided to post a temporary entry with some doodles I did during the process of creating all 36 designs as well as some of the first few ones I did.
I made up a magazine for my Midterms in Fashion Trends. We basically had to make a magazine (individual work) that should have a total of 5 editorials. The editorials had to take inspiration from 5 activities we had in class namely: 2 inspired from a fashion decade in history (Because I wasn’t listening in class, I did 2. I chose 1920’s and 30’s), the Desigual launching event, the 2013 Graduation show of the Fashion Institute of the Philippines, your own aesthetic and how socio-economic events affect the fashion industry. These pages are not in the right order. Credits of who did what are found in the layout (which I did by myself and I never want to do that again). Oh but most of the clothes were borrowed from my very very good friend Reese Lansangan, suit used for the 1930’s editorial is by Tatenda Sipula, and the rubber band dress was done by the fabulous Mimi Garbo. 🙂
On the up side, my teacher told the class that I had one of the best magazines so two thumbs up! At least all the effort didn’t go to a waste.
One of the first few (if not the first. I can’t really remember) exercises that we did for Advance Draping with Ms B. Her only instructions were to draw inspiration from Balenciaga’s SS13 collection which features Flamenco flounces. She told me to create my own design but to follow the neckline.
