In my fall 2011 collection my inspiration came from old world maps with an equestrian- inspired twist. I incorporated the old-world rustic colors such as warm reds, smoky browns, tea stained khakis, with highlights of rich oranges and corals. The style of the clothing was inspired by equestrian details. The tweed vests, corduroy stirrup pants, riding boots and wool plaid skirts are reminiscent of equestrian-inspired fashions.
During this semester, I have learned about so many new techniques and aspects of fashion illustration. Here is my collection that I rendered. In this class I learned about layouts, silhouettes, fabric rendering, proportion and much more. I was able to take the things I learned and put them into a portfolio. My collection is called “A Stitch in the Story.
Buy basics that can be mixed and matched with other fun and unique pieces. This cranberry dress is fun because of its silhouette and box pleats, but it still can be considered a neutral because it is a solid. This dress can be worn to work with a blazer and riding boots or it can be accessorized with chunky jewelry and elegant heels for a dinner party. Having these quality basics makes your closet expand. Being able to truly mix and match makes your life easier and your wardrobe more fun and exciting!
