The Start of Something New

Life has changed a lot, for everyone, since the start of the year. With COVID-19 threatening our health, we've been required to stay inside and away from people. High school me would have thrived in this. Now, however, I'm in my 4th semester of the fashion design program at my community college. I have a group of incredible friends, and I had just started a new job. I was looking forward to, although stressed from, our fashion exhibition at the end of the semester. Unfortunately, things have changed and we've all been forced to adapt to this new, strange way of life. However, as artists and fashion designers, it's important that we continue creating and sharing. 

Recently, I've been working on several projects, for school and just for fun. I'm the master at starting a million projects before I finish any of them. Drawing has always been my go-to. I try to draw/sketch/paint at least once a day. Sewing and embroidering take more time and cause more frustration, so I usually tend to do them in small increments. I'm currently almost finished with my skirt, which is part of my final collection for class. I've also taken crocheting back up. I'm working on a granny square bag to go with my final collection, as well. I even made a little weaving loom out of a picture frame and nails. The weaving shown in the photo is now finished, I just have to decide what I'm going to do with it.

As I work on these various projects, I'll be updating my progress on here. There will be a lot more art and design, but fashion will always be interwoven into them. Feel free to stick around and follow my art/fashion journey through this bizarre time that we're living in.
