End of fashion week.

I forgot to write about my last show, L'Wren Scott which was yesterday because I was intent on getting my application into Parsons. They were doing an offer of waiving the application fee if you applied by Thursday the 18th. Imagine my surprise to click onto the link fo the offer and find that it had expired! I was very annoyed because I was applying in the alotted time frame. I wrote to the director of admissions and let him know that was some foul shit! After all that application nonsense I was just too tired to post anything, but L'Wren Scott was very nice from the garments I could see. I'll post the pictures from all the shows I went to to the corresponding posts later. I started this post late and I'm tired and now my computer is freezing up. Tomorrow, I'll definately post them!

Fashion week day six.

Eight shows down, one more to go! Today was Michael Kors one of the few shows during fashion week that has both mens and women's wear. And you know if there are men in the show, it is my preference to work with them andfor this hsow I did. My models were Terron and Stan. Poor stan pretty much dressed himself for all the assistance I gave him. I liked the fact that he knew how to style his look without any help so that all I had to do was tuck, zip and de-lent. He wasn't very talkative, but some of the other models around were which is usually the case with the guys.

As I was leaving this show, when it was over, I began to consider studying menswear when I go back to Parsons. I really do like men's wear and I would love to design clothes that my fantasy man would wear. I guess hat's the way  many fashion designers design, by thinking of what we would like to see people wearing. Sometimes it's just an outlet for being really creative, like haute couture. Couture is really, expensive, one of a kind, made-to-measure designs, usually one of kind. Couture is a fun creative outlet, but not very cost effective as not many people can afford couture. Thatis why so many deisgners have lower priced lines. There are more people who can drop  a few hundred buck on a clothing item than theree are who can drop a few thousand bucks on something. Fashion is fun and all, but clothes are not worth going into debt for!

I should be posting some of my sketches soon. While I was out today I bought some colored chalk pencils to experiment with different coloring techinques for my sketches and drawings. I'm also going to try my hand at water colors. I don't paint, but I don't see why I can't try it out. I the look of water colors and I like the fact that I can use water colored pencils which is easier on the wallet!
