Elyse's presentation today

Elyse's presentation was really inspiriing today. The bag she was wroking on was so adorable, and I think the job that she has sounds fun and I believe she is enjoying it. Listening to Elyse talk made me realize that its important to go out and try new things because you have go find your own niche. I think I would like to do something like what Elyse does. And I was thinking of dropping this major and going into tourism and hotel management but now I'm extremely undecided. I think if I research what jobs are out there I'll be able to make a choice on what career path I want to take.

No one wants to work in cramped up working conditions, plus get paid basicially nothing. All over the world sweatshops exist. Many people try to stop it, others are completely for it. Its chea,p and lets be serious, who wantsto do the dirty work.
Although I think sweatshops are not a good thing, it does benefit, it is a job, and its a way of life for some. Think about all the illegal immigrants that come to America for opportunity. They take the jobs that US citizens do not want, and we benefit from that. This is the same sort of idea.

design #1

What inspired me to draw this design, was actually my prom. This dress reminds me of being at a yacht club overlooking the water, which is what my school did for prom. Its very elegant and glamorous and I was going for an expensive taste.

MB New York Fashion Week

When looking at all the designers pieces, the ones I found I liked the most were the ones of color and feminity. I feel alot of the desingers want to bring "classy" back to womens clothing. Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenburg, and Calvin Klein all seem to grasp this concept in their works.
The two that enticed me the most were Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta.
Marc Jacobs: very classy, 1920's look, with the waist being emphasized, mix of different patterns, stripes, plus very colorful.
Oscar de la Renta: his designs were timeless and classy. extremely elegant. Every piece was tasteful to wear for women of all ages.
I think classy is a great look to portray. I mean no matter what the occasion is its always a good way to go.

I really loved The Donna Karen collection. As well as William Rast. DKNY, It focused more on natural beauty and the enviornmental colors. The browns, tans, and greens, some blue, were a great way to give an earthy feel. William Rast, I love that americana look. I know they were talking about how Justin Timberlake was involved with the designing, and him being a tennessee boy, you could tell he was in the background inspiring in someway. I'm from NY and I came down here cause I like that whole southern feel. The collection was free, a little rock and roll, alot of denim, and fun.

Organic and Environmental Friendly Clothing

I think organic and enviornmental clothing are very important at this time. With global warming taking place we need all the help we can get. Levi just announced that it will be going enivironmentally friendly. 100% organic. I think it says alot about the company brand or designer when they take steps to better the world. I think alot of consumers will like it but i think theres others who will not care as much and just buy what they want.

Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli is one of my favorite designers because I love the fact that he always incorporates some sort of print into his work. He mixes different prints, from zebra to leopard, stripes to floral, colors, and textures, and the piece just comes out so exotic and stunning. Always trendy with so much attitude. Love it.
