The collage directly above was the first one I made. Reminiscent of the 80s and 90s tomboy style, channeling Katie Holmes’ character Joey Potter from “Dawson’s Creek”.
Color Palette: Masculine, red, blues, orange/gold/yellow, grey, cream, and tan/camel
Patterns: Stripes and plaids
The character is for a short story are wrote a couple years ago. She’s a modern teenager with retro (1950s/60s) fashion sense. I sort of modeled her after myself and gave her glasses, but unlike my own her’s have the cateye frames.
My outfit today consisted of blues and violets (specifically sky blue, violet, lavender, and a deep regal purple) with a neutral khaki base and gray accents.
This is the canvas bag I mentioned in my last post. On side note, I love floral patterns, especially these sheets with roses in shades of blue and violet I found on Etsy.
Imagined town: Spring Heights, Colorado. It’s the 80s or early 90s. It’s perpetual early spring and everyone wears these hues, in puffer vest, crisp cotton shirts in crazy patterns, corduroy pants, cashmere (or wool) socks, leather high tops, and headbands.
I entered a contest to design a logo for a community-based organization called The Factory. The organization makes clothes from donated and remnant fabrics (See event). I wanted something that was clean and simple, but well thought out and designed. My idea behind my design was to show lines or “threads” as the weaving and unweaving (or sewing together) of fabrics that are later being cut and remade into something else. It also helps to illustrate the sense of community and togetherness. The handmade type represents the organization’s connection with community and independent designers. I was inspired by this statement:
The factory is a community-based organization
created to complement the efforts of The Evans Group.
We are a launching pad for independent designers that
builds community through social awareness in fashion
and highlights the hands that touch our garments.
The colors I chose to use are meant to show the collecting of old and new…the use of something that was into something new and different. I also see the color as very symbolic California. I hope my design is chosen!
It’s so feminine and dainty.
I love the clothes, always unique, sophisticated, and modern, with a vintage twist. They have a great taste in color, pattern and texture.
The gold jacket makes the outfit.
I love his slightly unusual, skewed, quirky take on fashion. The gold buttons on this cardigan are the perfect detail.
I love the way I can interact with the Onitsuka Tiger website. Click the link, and you’ll see what I’m talking about. The unusual color combinations they use for the shoes are beautiful. They really stand out in the sea of monotony.
I adore the attention to detail, whether it’s pin tucking, buttons, or weaving of leather for their sandals. I really like the high gloss of these shoes and black is my favorite color to dress up in.
She is timeless and classic.
Take a look at my store (http://skreened.com/pgaesthetics).
The next one is the first version of two designs I will upload to be put on t-shirts.
The second version of the above design:
Please let me know what you think.
Ford model Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn, and Arlenis Sosa are the four models featured on the cover of i-D Magazine. There is a post about it on Ford’s blog. I want to see more women like me on the cover. No They just need to do more ‘fros. They are all beautiful and brown. Enough said.
