So in 2006 I made a change and I started my career in Fashion Design. It hasn't been easy, especially because Costa Rica is really small and chances are SO limited... but anyways, I took a risk and I'm SO happy I took it, since that time I've been really happy and satisfied with what I'm doing. I learn a few things at school and another porcentage I think I have learn it by myself.
Dreams are always ON and I have really high expectations and goals for the future, so hopefully you'll be seing more from me...
Here's my first project for school, it was for the first fashion show I had. This was designed for Fall/Winter 2006-2007, is really conceptual and not that wearable. The inspiration for the collection was music, specifically Alternative Dance. They asked us to have a muse, so I chose Björk 'cause I think that she is a music icon and also A fashion icon, always dressed with avant garde pieces, from unknown designers, wearing what she likes no matter if she's on the worst dressed lists all the time, but that makes her unique!
So reading about Alternativa Dance, I found that it was a really rich inspiration for my first fashion collection. I created for the runway 3 pieces: 1 dress, 1 skirt and 1 blouse. As this music genre does, my cloth representing style, texture and fusion/contrast of different elements and fabrics. I used jacquard, jersey, silk, lace and damask. And the colors were based on the trend for the season, that's always a requirement for school. -.-'
Here's the final product!
