2D- For 2D, project deliverables were to create 6-8 look collection for any categories or seasons, of achromatic color of my choice. I’ve learned a lot how to design clothes that I can actually execute to 3D forms. Doing a lot of flat sketches helped me a lot with that. Choosing a color that would work with all the clothes (looks) were definitely challenging as one outfit/look will look good with certain color on the other hand other outfit didn’t. Choosing a right swatch for each clothes were another challenging task throughout the week.
3D- Making a flared skirt with gathers was very challenging for me as this was the first time making a pattern. I had to create a pattern by using a sloper and modify to flared skirt, which was challenging because there were a lot of calculations and everything had to be exact. I saw the professor doing the demonstrations of how to make a pattern for a flared skirt with gathers and transfer that to the muslin fabric and also how to use a sewing machine and sew. At first, everything was very confusing and difficult but as I made mistakes and had to redo, I’ve definitely learned a lot from it.
Visual Communication (Drawing)- For Drawing class, I did a lot of figurative fashion drawings from live models who were students in the class. Ive definitely learned how to draw figures and gestures very quickly and ive noticed that I don’t really pay attention to drawing hair and shoes (feet) of models which the professor accented a lot with. But overall, drawing many figures in a very short time was one thing that Ive learned from the drawing class.
