I have not been able to blog much lately, all the hand ins are next week and I am just going out of my mind with work, I have so much to do and so little time to do them. Here are few photos of what I have been working on for my T-shirt project. This is, of course, not final outcomes, only few sketches.
I just got back home from five day trip to Milan with Uni. It is the second time I go visit Milan and it is so beautiful. I had such a great time. The city is so amazing, the buildings alone are breathtaking.
And the food! I have never had such a good food in my life! We always went to these small places, that did not look too fancy, so the price was good but still the food was amazing! You do not get these kind of pizza in UK nor Iceland! MMM… I want to go back.
I just booked my flight to Iceland, I am leaving after only 16 days. So I will make it to Reykjavik Fashion Festival, I am so excited.
Resently I have been learnig to use Lectra system in Uni. It is really hard work, a lot to remember, specially because I am not a really tech person. But it is very fun once you get the hang of it. It is just practise really.
One of the softwares of the Lectra system is Kaledo. It is a drawing tool, similar to Illustrator but more simple. We use it to make our technical drawings.
We also use software called Modaris. We use Modaris to make our patterns digitally. It is so handy! I love it. After years of hand making patterns this is really a gift from God. But it is complex, it takes time to learn it, but when you do it is so easy to alter patterns in any way you please.
And finally, we can print the pattern out.
Digital Fashion, Love it!
Copanhagen Fashion Week was held 30 Jan – 4 Feb. I love Danish fashion. I think it is so elegant but yet so laid back. Here are some of my favorites.
DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN. I specially liked the styling and layering, and a love,love,love the trouser range. The models seemed really laid back and comfortable in these clothes.
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD. Showed at Copenhagen fashion week for the first time. I absolutely love the color in this show. She has always been one of my favorite, she is so bold with patterns and color.
BY MALENE BIRGER. I have to admit that I did not like the styling here, specially those hats, something about them that I just hated. But oh those furs, I fell in love.
