On Friday night was the MODA Spring 2012 Fashion Show at the grand hall in Union Station. There, I presented a four look collection for hundreds of guests. Like the other student designers at the show, my design process was self thought. I'd love to learn more.
The collection was a culmination of a few weeks of sketching, fabric selection, pattern making, sewing and fitting. The four looks I designed featured hues of blues, whites and creams, full length skirts and slacks, fitted bodices and loose blouses. I topped each look off with a floral headband and each of my models wore unifying black pumps. All in all, I was pleased with how my pieces turned out.
