A couple of summers ago, coming home from class, I took the subway with a friend and I told her I was trying to start a blog... then I also told her how time consuming and addicting it had become, and that I was wondering if it was something worth doing... she laughed and asked me to let her know when I was done and give her the"link" so she could read it. Then she left and I kept thinking...why? why should I do this ?

Technology has taken us to a new level and we are now, able to "publish ourselves"! PUBLISH OURSELVES however we want to; if you want to be yourself, transparent and out in the open, or even if you want to pretend to be someone else... YOU CAN! Now you can blog and share your thoughts and experiences with people without having them "altered" by the editors, or "chosen" because of how cool or marketable they are...

This space is for us to share; zaidibirindilindilandia-my own little world, my ingenious- and your thoughts!

welcome, and thank you!

fusioning! pictures OF the show!

On March 8th and 9th 2008, 30 aspiring designers showed off their collections at the Fusion Fashion Show 2008. 15 students from FIT and 15 students from Parsons were selected from the hundreds that applied...being one of them was an honor...
I honestly didn't realize how big of an experience Fusion was going to be... It consumed my life for around 5 months, but it really helped me learn about who I am as an artist/designer.

It all starts with a "vision" which ends up getting more and more complicated as you start developing it. In the end- although essentially what you imagined- It turns out to be VERY different... beginning of every show because it kept on breaking...

No one knows the mayhem/madness of the backstage... AND... that I had to fix a zipper at the . However, I cannot believe how "professional"our work looked when it went down the runway.
ENJOY the pictures >.< !
