Happy Sunday Funday, everyone! So, Sundays are all about doing whatever we want. As much as I love posting about the style and fashion items from other places for inspiration, I need to remember that I'm a fashion DESIGN student! It's about time that I incorporate some of my own designs into Anthony & Elle!
Back in 2010, I decided to teach myself to sew in preparation for fashion school (this all while finishing up my Bachelors in Biology.. Weird?) Luckily, I documented some of that on another blog so, why don't you go check out some of my old projects that I did while learning to sew HERE!
Anyway, I want to challenge myself with new projects, so that's where I need YOUR help! I was thinking of starting out with illustrations first, and perhaps move into sewing if time permits?
I get inspiration in many ways; such as just by looking at fabrics. Check out a little illustration project I did based on the bolts of floral fabrics I have and summer:
So what is this all about?
I WANT YOUR HELP!
Give me challenges! It could be pictures of fabrics, pictures of inspiration, it can be a word, it can be a paragraph, anything you feel fit! It can be as simple as "Fire" or difficult as "You're stuck in a room with this piece of fabric [picture] and a sewing machine, what would you make?"
I primarily do menswear and women's apparel, but I'm up for trying anything! So specify all you want!
I think it would be awesome to test myself in situations and get people involved in our blog with my own designs! Plus it gives me great practice in making my illustrations better. I'll try to do as many as I can, and depending on how many challenges I get, I will pick the best ones to show everyone! If I REALLY like it and have the means to make it, I will try!
So please, test my skills, I'm up for the challenge! Be creative and have fun! I'm looking to do this every Sunday if it's successful and I'll show the results then too!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
