so for the portfolio design lab, tillinghast and clayton had me make a dress and do a photo shoot with the dress, because i told them i was going to pursue fashion design after art center. the dress was the hardest thing i did before graduating. i literally had to teach myself to make and drape clothing, without much prior experience. it was crazy, making textures and silkscreening the fabric. the inside of the dress has silkscreened root patterns in the fabric. the dress was inspired by the iris. i read iris's are indicators of spring, so there are 3 layers of white fabric which go from opaque to translucent like melting snow. the inside layer is the silkscreened root fabric. the highwaisted skirt on the inside is the bulb root of the flower. the iris it self is the purple blue bra/ neck piece. enjoy. oh yeah credits:

this was a set of women's sportswear i used as part of my entrance portfolio to get into fidm. there's more, but i like these best. i might post the other ones later. oh and for everyone out there reading this and wonding why i used the term sportswear to describe career wear, it's what they use in the industry to describe career wear. activewear is what we normally think of as "sportswear." activewear is clothing designed for a particular sport. yeah.. confusing... isn't it?

this was the final book i made for the light and color class. these are pictures i took with the pinhole camera i made. it was a pretty fun project. each section is a double page spread. i didn't include the back cover and endpage. it pretty much looks like the coverpage without the text.
