The following pieces were my entrance portfolio to the Fairfax Academy for Communications and the Arts. Just a fun fact: that guy in the crazy eye makeup in the flash slide-show is me! The Academy was an incredible experience, and in my opinion it shows the positive side of education. More on that later, though. Here are my pieces - keep in mind these were done about three years ago. All are pencil and watercolor on watercolor paper, so they're a bit faint. Hope you like them!
|Drawstring linen beach ensemble with accessories|
and two bathing suit options.
|Day-to-Evening top - this one was actually recolored on my computer.|
|Jazzy Party Dress in silk and chiffon.|
|Day-to-Evening Ensemble: Oversize Cowl Sweater and Tweed Skirt with matching shoes.|
|Evening Gown in Crepe Silk with Chiffon detail and matching accessories. This was actually inspired by a Bûche de Noël|
|Ethereal Work Ensemble with matching boots and attache case.|
|Urban daytime look: Walking dress in cotton and embroidered cotton chiffon overlay. Cropped Trench, matching gloves and shoes.|
|Fanciful Evening Gown in Olive Bias-cut Satin. This shows something my newer designs lack: A reckless disregard for technical feasibility - I'll figure out how to make it later!|
That's it for now. This will be a continuing segment, however. Especially as I continue to uncover old artwork and designs during my move.
Hope you liked them!
PS: I'm itching to come up with hat designs for some of these things...!
