With the summer coming to a close, I reminisce of what occurred and how much fun it was. First stop- New York City. Continue reading Summer Vacation- NYC Edition
Hello my loves!! For my junior and senior high schoolers who can relate- IT IS PROM SEASON! This is such an exciting time for just about to everyone- but it was profoundly exciting for me as well. Since the time I even knew what prom was, I fantasized about it for years. What boy would prompose to me, my hair, my dress, the whole nine … Continue reading Prom 2k17
Hello my loves! With the new year, I am looking deeply into the trends of 2016-2017. Knowing myself, I usually don’t follow all the trends that have set themselves into our lives. But I’m always curious. As a designer, it’s important to know what works for yourself but also fits in with what everyone is wearing and what the excitement is. Fall fashion trends in 2016 Velvet: I’m pretty … Continue reading Trends of 2016-2017
My heart is heavy with sorrow. Yesterday was our final goodbye to two people who have paved a way for African Americans, and to a family of four who everyday people can relate to. A family who received so much praise at one end but at another so much hate. A family who had it’s flaws and owned up to them because just like all … Continue reading thoughts from a young girl.
Hello my loves! Today, I’m following suit with another one of what’s occurring in the media. I was scrolling through Twitter (my addiction that I should really give up on but… to no avail) and came across the picture: Anthony Anaxagorou, “This is not fashion, this is fetishising and commodifying racial abuse.” Facebook.com Now, if you’re not aware, in the left photo is a picture … Continue reading Racism in Fashion
Aw October. The month of when the weather begins to get colder and the color of leaves begin to change. Sweaters begin to come, fall eyeshadow and lipsticks begin to come back out, leg warmers of all colors are being tucked in boots, and scarfs are being worn more often- around the neck and head. All in all, the season of fall is spectacular. And … Continue reading Homecoming 2k16
Hello my loves! Today, I am doing something different. Instead of talking about something I’ve made, I have decided to talk about news in the world of fashion. As everyone should know, New York Fashion Week started September 7th and ended September 15th. I pretty sure we’re all aware because apparently society likes to do full coverage on the Kardashian’s and since Kanye West has … Continue reading MJ- You Scoundrel.
Hello my loves! As promised, I am here to talk about my African maxi skirt! From my previous post, I had talked about this being my obsession- my addiction. When I don’t have anything else to sew, this is a quick and easy project that I can do with any cotton fabric. I have yet to try this pattern in any other fabric but I … Continue reading African Maxi Skirt
Hello loves! It is legit boiling this summer! Walking outside feeling like you’re melting has become the norm around here. But regardless of how hot it is- I still feel obligated to dress up. And with the usual outfits being shorts and tank-tops, I began to sew more and more. And one thing that I have yet to give up, something I had made about … Continue reading My Newfound Addiction
All right, before I go into my project, here is a disclaimer. At my school, there is theater- which is the acting aspect of the arts, and tech theater- which is the set making, costume, props, lighting, etc. aspect of the arts. And if it isn’t obvious, I am in tech-theater because of costuming. At the beginning of junior year I was blessed with being … Continue reading How to Succeed in Overkill
