Here's a figure in a "slim satin bias dress with beaded embellishment" which was the assignment.
Her hair is done in eye shadow, as is her skin. She is a foxy lady.
After that, we were assigned a figure in a velvet top and a BIG satin skirt. The BIG satin skirt made me very happy.
I liked her pockets. And, luckily enough, so did my professor! Woohoo!
There have been other assignments, too, such as my GIANT PROJECT, my military-inspired outerwear project. Which I forgot to take pictures of before handing in. Nicely done. But! Now the suspense is on. I'll post pictures when I get it back. It came out pretty well, all things considered. :)
The next project for Fashion Art and Design is our eveningwear project. The theme for the class is "Queen Victoria Meets The Muse," and we each had to pick our own muse for the collection. I chose Amelie, from the movie Amelie, played to perfection by Audrey Tautou. I got the movie out of the school library last Saturday morning, and I've watched it 8 times in the week since. I want to know it by heart so that I feel like I'm designing clothes for a close friend instead of an imaginary person. Here are my fabrics (though I can only use 12 of them eventually).
Soooo, last week, I engaged in a little retail therapy. I had to, okay? I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT!!! :D Anyway, I went to H+M to no avail, and then I went to my old stand-by, Charlotte Russe. I'd already picked out this dress to include in my next blog entry, and I ended up buying it, because it is just. So. Cute!
Obviously, I had to get a sweater to go with it. And earrings. And a bracelet. And a belt.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find pictures of the sweater or bracelet. So I'll just take a picture next time I wear them.
This last week was a hard one. From here until I leave school for the summer, on May 18th, it's going to be pretty stressful, and I kinda had a meltdown this week. It felt like everyone else was thriving off the insanity that is second semester fashion design at FIT, and I was the only person falling apart, though I now know that's not the case. I was ready to transfer schools and major in English, because, well... who really wants to be crying for an hour every day? It's a drag. But after several agonizing days, a really sweet ukulele performance (though not by me), some unexpected support, and some not-so-great feedback on my transferring idea, things eased up. Or I adjusted my attitude. Or both. Either way, I'm feeling much better about things. Here's to finding comfort in the most unlikely of places. Thanks guys. :)

When I went home for Spring Break, I forgot the cord that makes my camera attach to my computer, so no uploading for me! But now that I'm back... Lots of pictures!!!
Went to my brother's college, and was very comforted to see this in a construction area. :P
And some other pictures from that day...
Pictures of my street taken out the window of the car
Some fliers... flyers... posters currently hanging in the Honesdale Public Library.
The smiley face totally makes it.
And, of course, EASTER!
My basket... cutest parents ever.
Our Easter eggs have a tendancy to be a little... unusual.

Gathered satin skirt egg? ! Why yes.
