a collection for spring!

this year most of my collections have been headed in the fall/winter direction, so i figured my portfolio needs a little cheer.

for my senior thesis, i designed a men's sportswear collection for fall. my color palette focuses on greens and browns and denim, with pops of lighter color to add interest.

these are the five final looks i'm making for the runway show:

this guy is going to be wearing a thick hand knit sweater similar to the one in look 2 over his shirt:

these are the rest of the looks that i designed as options:

wish me luck!

my summer project

as some of you may know, johnny's sister lizi is getting married in january. i am designing and making the dress. the ceremony is taking place on a beach in mexico, so the dress is very simple and easy to walk barefoot in.
its made of silk jersey with silk georgette layered over it. the shoulders have pieces of crepe tacked down to add volume and interest. there is a top layer of georgette that has tucks along the slit to add volume and break up the monotony of a long gathered skirt.
i just started draping today, so i'll post pictures as i go.

wish me luck!

this proves i am not useless in the kitchen.

my mom got an alice waters cookbook for her birthday a few weeks ago, so for dinner one night we tried out some recipes.

this is a random assortment of pickled fruit & veg: cucumbers, two kinds of radishes and watermelon. (it sounds gross, but is actually delicious!)

this is an asian version of the caprese salad: thin slices of tofu and cherry tomato halves topped with basil leaves and a sesame/soy sauce dressing. deeee-lish!
