Last week, my leather class went over to the Special Collections of the FIT library to look at some of Bonnie Cashin's original sketchbooks.
Bonnie Cashin was a designer who started her career in the 1950s. She was known for using leather in unexpected ways.
|look how cute this girl is in her little hat!|
|this is Bonnie Cashin in 1960. seeing this photo made me laugh because one of the jokes-that-is-actually-true in fashion illustration is that everyone draws girls that look like themselves. Miss Bonnie was no exception.|
Now I'm off to have my ideal Sunday-- Petco to pet the cats, then buying yarn for my senior collection, then getting a macaron, then coming home and sewing for the rest of the day.
Any fun Sunday plans? What's your ideal Sunday?
