And finally introducing my very first collection: Contradiction.! This is look 2 out of 4 and it consists of a neoprene top with large puffy laser cut sleeves with a hint of dusk mauve organza and a crepe asymmetrical wide-leg pant and a reversible tennis skirt combo. The top has a Peter Pan collar and a button down back closure and the sleeves were laser cut at @mdcollege ‘s own makers lab (@makerslabmdc) at the @mdcwolfson campus.
The pants can be worn with the shirt in the front or the back. My inspiration for the title of my collection being “Contradiction.” was due to the very definition of the word itself. A contradiction can be described as a combination of features of a situation that are opposed to one another.
For example, I utilized mainly neoprene and organza, two very different fabrics, both in weight and appearance, I utilized the negative space with with laser cutting and the sheerness of the organza, and I took a modern, technological take on vintage looks. I also noticed how the word itself had enough ”holes” in it to utilize all the shapes that are present in the pattern (check out the last posts to see what I mean!) In this look specifically, there is even a contradiction in the pant, with it being pants with a skirt.
Also for this collection, I was inspired by the garment that I made in my third semester, the pattern and the shapes are the same, but I recreated that idea into a whole new collection. I want to give a big thanks to everyone who’s supported me through my journey here at @miamifashioninstitute , I would not be able to do it without you guys! I’d also like to thank @annedouge and @fangfangruose for helping with this shoot!
Please stay tuned for the next few looks coming soon!
