Flower Power

My latest illustration homework was to create a collection using an irregular print. I chose to challenge myself and draw a floral print. I made a bracelet with the matching floral  fabric in my illustrations and wore it today when I turned in my illustration board.

Paint It Black

This outfit isnt too post-worthy but I like to try and post when I can. I wore this ruffled top with a black skirt to Dinner with my parents. They came down to Miami to leave on a cruise and I will get to see them again when the ship docks back on Friday!

It's Getting a little more like Fall in Miami and people are starting to break out the fall clothing. I decided to wear my black slouch boots. These are a great fall trend that go with almost anything and are especialy good for girls uncomfortable with heels

Andrew Charles

Aerosmith's lead singer (Steven Tyler), and Musician/Designer Andy Hilfiger( Tommy Hilfiger's brother) Launched a new rock and roll inspired collection for Macy's. Last night they held a rockin fashion show and concert for their new line- "Andrew Charles", in downtown Miami. The show was part of Miami Funkshion Fashion Week.

I was able to work backstage, dress the models, and sign in guests. I have volunteered for other shows before through my school but this was by far the most fun! The show itself was vibrant and very rock and roll. The clothing was fun, sexy, and rock-glam.

The fashion show was followed by a performance by Andy Hilfiger himself alongside drummer, Marky Ramone.

This is one of the outfits my model wore. You can find it at Macy's. She wore faux snake skin pants with a mesh top and leather jacket!

The models backstage.

Backstage I met and shook hands with Andy Hilfiger and other band members. Andy was very kind and gave all the volunteers from my school an Andrew Charles t-shirt! It was such a fun and inspirational night.

Chocolate Festival

This past weekend the design students at my school participated in the annual chocolate festival. The festival benefited a children's charity for facial reconstructive surgery. During the chocolate festival, a fashion show was held, which students from the school presented their garments made out of chocolate wrappers! I modeled for this event and had a blast.

This dress was inspired by the venician carnivals.

The lovely designers.

Good morning Bloggers,

Another day at school. Today I had Pattern making and construction.
I love both classes though they are very strenuous and make an 8 hour school day.
I love that I get to work on the industrial sewing machines and start learning the basics of making patterns and constructing a garment. I love what I do!

These pants are so comfortable. Pockets, elastic cuff and waistband.

Ruffled Shoulders

Black Pants: Forever 21
Shirt: Forever21

Another Beautiful Day in Miami. Decided to wear my new army green, lace up boots.
They are perfect fall boots even if its still warm here in Florida. Its been a little breezy here so its starting to feel like fall.

I wore a floral flowy tank top with green flowers.
Straight leg tan pants tucked into the boots.
