So, it's my first challenge results post! I'm a little nervous for the criticism, but I can take it!
I chose 3 challenge ideas and came up with original designs. I wouldn't say they are my best, but I think I did a good enough job for my first post!
So, here they are in no particular order!
I love this challenge because, honestly, I've never tried a plus size design! I know a lot of what I do would look good on all sizes, but I never specifically think about the plus size clientele, so this was a really great challenge to tap into that way of thinking!
To me, a nice black fitted blazer looks great on everybody (and I love contrast cuffs!) I also love smart color blocking, so I designed this purple/white blocked knee length dress. White can be unforgiving, but I think contrasting with the entire outfit, it will make everything look slimmer, sexy, and fun! I also threw in a belt to cinch the waist, and a matching bag (because I love matching accessories!) I hope you'd wear this over at Haute Curvy Woman !
You should know I'm a huge Gaga fan, so when I saw this challenge, I died a little. A bit morbid, but a BRILLIANT idea! So, I decided Gaga was going to be a demure version of herself at a funeral. I came up with an angel of death concept, so I incorporated black and white (which I love contrasted together). A sleek mandarin collared straight dress with white trim and oversized puff sleeves. I also thought she'd carrying rosary beads and wear a beehive head veil for dramatics. A perfectly demure, yet dramatic look to respect the dead, but still be Gaga!
PS, check out Rivalation! : It's a student competition website that gives monetary prizes out! Maybe I should enter?
Of course I was up for the challenge! It's always fun to look at random things and come up with a complete look from it! I didn't choose ANY purse though, I took @altliae up on her offer while using one of her super cool purses on her Etsy!
(Isn't the shape great? I'm a geometric-ophile...)
Pin It Now!
I came up with this fall number. I incorporated a brown leather choker blazer with size panel and knee padded white pants! (Is white acceptable in any way in the fall? I say, why not!) This is probably my favorite design of the challenges! The colors work together so well and earth tones are really appealing to me these days! I also tried to match the circular geometric theme with softer lines all around.
Oh, and I used micron pens, colored pencils, and markers for each of these in my 11 x 14 sketch pad! Just in case you were wondering!
SO WHAT'S NEXT? :::
Let's continue this! I'll keep choosing 3 design ideas a week (if you already submitted, I will use that idea at a later date)! I love the illustration and design concept practice, and I hope that I get better as this process continues!
So, how did I do?
