A slideshow of the February 2011 Photoshoot

Fashion styling, make-up, photography, editing and slideshow by Olivefotografix.

Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator for Fashion Design

A sample classwork.

I still need to finish the final project that is due on June 4, Saturday. This could mean work after work for me starting on Tuesday. I can not however start now because this Memorial Weekend has the only Saturday off from school since 2011 started. It's surreal to enjoy staying at home, nothing beats it!

Last project for draping

I was thinking that fabric without print or extra texture was too plain for my gown project. I was really having jacquard fabric in my head.
My mistake (which I won't say) turned out be to a really an artistic twist on the bodice.
Draping is both a form of discipline and art. =) Of course!

The highlight of this gown is the shell on the sides: this gown is intended for women who would like their waist to look small but their hips bigger than usual.

With a little more flair here and there, this gown could actually be a period gown or an epic movie costume, LOL! I would want to design for a movie given the opportunity, why not?

This project taught me a lot---and that's the least to say!

After Draping I, II and III, I have metamorphosed from someone who is not even able to cut and sew the hem of her pants to someone who can actually make a gown. In the light of things that has been, I forgot that I do not know! Now, I simply know how. Period.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Now at the Metropolitan Museum. A must see for everyone. Can't wait to be at the MET and bask on my favorite designer's art work.
Once again---why did he leave this world too soon?

Jennifer Lopez - I'm Into You ft. Lil Wayne

Okay, this is ONE video of Jennifer Lopez that showcased more her growing modelling skills or appeal than her dancing skills.
By the way, the African dance threw me off a bit---that dance in an Incan pyramid? It's just historically not correct. Oh well, THIS IS a music video...maybe they just wanna pull people's feet. =)
