Fashion Collection 2020
In an attempt to protect myself from judgment,
I criticize my work intensely before showing it to anyone. But when I do this, my work looks restrained, dull, and lacks joy. I basically kill the idea instead of letting it develop.
Designing this collection was a way to symbolize this internal struggle and was an attempt to create, while letting go of the need to be in control.
Over the course of seven months, I designed and constructed six looks for Pittsburgh's largest fashion event, Lunar Gala. This included creating concept illustrations, pattern making, garment construction, and multiple garment fittings.
