Here is another piece that I helped make for Cut 25. It was a bag made out of soft leather, lambskin, I believe. My friend had designed the awesome weaving pattern in the front of it. I had constructed the actual bag and made the prototype a few times, using cardboard. It was fun and makes me want to design bags now. haha Hopefully it will get produced. I mean, there are people out there ready to rock something bold like this… especially with ‘construction’ orange as a main color.  View high resolution

Little Scene From The Fashion World
…my internship ain’t no joke…! That’s all I have to say. 
But I do now know all the Spring/Summer 2012 like the back of my hand. Why? Maybe because I had to painfully hand dye stretched, poly taffeta to match the PERFECT color for 2 days (to find out it was impossible) , analyze and evaluate the style boards and exact fabrics to delivery dates next year, or maybe it’s just because I could be working till 10pm…idk View high resolution

Mind meld.
Went to the sewing lab tonight to meet with Nez about her business cards and portfolio  system. I’m really excited to help her make them! We had such fun collaborating. She wanted to have cards that doubled as memorable take-aways, and thought of doing matchbooks. I came up with the idea of keeping the matchbook format, but changing the contents to something more apropos: they’re going to be little sewing kits! Her colors are white and lime green, which is a perfect combination: the austerity and precision of a trained designer, with the energy and eccentricity unique to Inez. I will show you the roughs as they develop, but I will tell you that I am salivating over some sexy key words: letterpress, white leather, electric green envelopes…

Thank you so much. IDK what I’d do without you. This is the first time I’ve really sat and been a part of your projects. It’s different from being excited as I usually watch your ideas become masterpieces than it is to actually be a part of it. You’re a real visionary and I’m blessed you’re my bestie. This is the start of our MILLIONS of collaborations.

Suddenly different styles of pajama wear started to evolve; Cocktail  Pajamas, Beach/swimsuit Pajamas, Day-wear Pajamas.  Yeah, I’m into it. View high resolution

I wish I started logging in my experiences at BCBG last week. All I know is that, I came at the right time…well, so they say. I came right when they were all prepping for New York Fashion Week. 
I jumped around with helping out the many different lines. My favorite was prepping for the "Herve Leger" line. Being able to take pictures, label and put each look together with my own hands was so amazing. The designer and her team had me document each of the garments and put them in order, from 1 to 32. That’s right, 32 looks will be going down the Runway in New York this coming weekend. Each garment was so intricate with bandages, as they played off the concept of Shoe Laces. Strips and Straps completed the whole garment, it’s like they didn’t even use whole fabric. Being a fashion designer, I couldn’t help but examine the construction of each creation. A model came in and they took a picture of her wearing each look. The pictures were printed asap and a co-worker and I had to put them on their own sheets, indicating what look is what. The team gathered together, weary and stressed, as they quickly crossed out what shoes to switch, what accessories to take out… They must have gone through a million post its with different notes. 5 o’clock came out of no where and they scrambled with last minute preps, pulling of extra fabric in case they need to change out a sleeve or cuff. I didn’t realize, this all had to be done and packed by that night. Then they were off to New York. 

…what a rush…

This picture I took is of a couple of the packed garments ready to be sent to New York for Fashion Week. If I could, I would take pictures of the garments but, that’s their secret! sorry. Check out the "Herve Leger” line for fall 2010 after this weekends runway shows. View high resolution
