• Fashion Collections: Behind the Scenes

    December Collection 2022

    01. Setting the Mood of December’s Collection The art of getting messy and manipulating raw materials with my hands has always stimulated me in the best of ways. It feels like a magic of sorts. When I was younger, I would watch my grandmother mend a hole with needle and thread as if the fabric had never been torn. Despite always being on the move, sewing gave her the power to slow down. Beneath shaded lamp light she would rest in a worn iron chair with her glasses teetering on the edge of her nose. Focused, she would weave the needle back and forth, back and forth. It was through…

    Ghost Pirate

    Being careful to step over the slumbering masses of seamen scattered about the deck, Enoch continued to search for her lover, Aasir, but her small glistening frame was nowhere to be found. Considering the slight shine that radiated from her translucent form and the dozens of jewels embedded throughout her tightly wound curls, Enoch thought she would have been easier to find. But at last, her star-like-lady had yet to grace the night. “Looking for someone?” called Matty from overhead. He stood on the quarterdeck leaning against the helm and slightly adjusted the steering wheel to keep the ship from going astray. For a moment, Enoch thought it better to…

    02. Processes, Models, & Interviews

    02. Processes, Models, & Interviews Doing art in an academic environment or in a group setting, is a new experience for me. Despite having numerous artistic hobbies that I’ve learned from the internet or trial and error, I’ve only taken about three art classes in my life (one in elementary and two in college). So the first group critique I experienced for this class, ART-460, was really shocking for me. Sure, I’ve received critiques before from professors and peers in my other classes, but that’s different. The purpose of critiquing an essay or a presentation is to fix the errors and get as close to perfect as possible. But there’s…

    This was never going to be easy, thought Ahwa as she approached the raging bonfire and snatched up the remaining duffle bag. Rattling it around, she could have sworn it were empty if not for the clang of a brass compass striking against an unsheathed dagger and a few other items not worth mentioning. It wasn’t much, but she expected that. Ahwa, nor any of the six other teenagers anxiously standing near the fire, were there to celebrate their recent coming of age. That would come later, if they survived. Tonight, for who knows how long, was about the culling. Despite the secrecy surrounding the initiation ceremony, they all knew…
