we should never say that we drifted far


it just occurred to me that i never really talked about the fact that i took a fashion class for this entire past year even though this is a fashion... blog (i think?) but it was a really cool, positive experience and i learned and grew a lot through it.

i've already posted pictures of the skirt i made for my first fashion show. my last show was supposed to be for aw inspired by this moodboard i made at the beginning:





i was kind of surprised that i was the only one in my class who went this route for being inspired by winter because most of the other moodboards were like "bringing color into the winter," but like winter is cold and hard, and the sooner we deal the sooner we get to spring lol.

i made all the following stuff (i'm pretty proud of myself you guys!) from the end of 1st semester to 2nd semester of 8th grade, except for the black pants worn by the model in the last photo-- those are from express.





(this dress is so poor quality honestly don't look @ it too hard, bc i wanted to do it for a while but only really decided to do it the day before the show smh)



i'm looking forward to making clothes and improving the quality of the stuff i make, and i should also take this chance to say that i'm extremely thankful to have this platform and all of you guys to share my ideas and work with. thank you for reading this!

  2. Haha, I love the line "winter is cold and hard, and the sooner we deal the sooner we get to spring lol" because TRUUUUUUUE OMG people need to embrace the harshness of winter. Be bright and colourful and the opportune time, people!!!! But also I am like, infinitely impressed that you made all this. I was trying to do embroidery earlier this year and that failed, and me and my dad tried to make me a costume for a convention which I was absolute no help for. Man, I am just SO IMPRESSED. You go girl.

  7. yes girl slay! cannot wait to see what you make next but from what I can see everything looks super good and your ideas are amazing! will just take a little time and energy to refine the seams and stuff like that (stuff which I wasnt great at myself)- but you can always get loads of cheap material to practice on from thrift stores :)
