This served as my final project for Advanced Fashion Sketching. I based the collection around contemporary street artists, primarily Banksy.
Strength From Structure
I recently found that I love illustrating with continuous contour lines. It gives an interesting look and silhouettes to my drawings. I wanted this collection to be completely about the body. I took x-ray images of bones and drew blind contour drawings of them. The human body created the silhouettes and designs of the garments that will assist women in making their bodies stronger and better - strength from structure.

For this collection I found inspiration in cities. I looked at both beauty of their tall linear structures along with the crumbling, deteriorating foundations that they stand on. I wanted to combine both of those aspects into one collection. The bold lines and geometric shapes in the garments represent that clean structural idea of a city, while the hanging sleeves, safety pins, and loose stitches show the part of the city that is barely staying together and could fall apart at any moment.

A collection inspired by the Tristan Fourtine Collection of geodes in the Villa Datris Foundation for Contemporary Sculpture in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France.
Ride or Die
A collection of snowboarding apparel that was inspired by both traditional arctic and snowboarding cultures and of the bold graphics on snowboards themselves. This is a moodboard, the final lineup, a selection of a few process book pages, and technical flats.
