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!

brother... FUlly-fashioned TG

today was our Term Garment presentation for brother®/fully fashioned class...
here is what i whipped up.

originally part of my fall/capillaris collection.
its a PROTOTYPE...so still in evolution, many changes to be made
its the first time I work with this technique of creating shaped-cutouts with float stitches... greatly inspired by BORA OKSUN/MARK FAST

this one is made out of 100% sheplands wool yarn.
I was hoping to have it shrink A LOT, having enough time to add sleeves, dye the garment and add some texture by weaving novelty slub yarn...
this is it for today- more in the future...
my favorite part- and the only one that was successful= the neckline

its a wrap: whimsicalities!

TODAY was my last fashion art/portfolio class EVER!
woot for that!
here is my "last" collection: spring---> "whimsicalities"

honestly, this is far from anything i would ever present to someone as a defining work, and this is not the development process I believe in. however, FIT wants us all to be robots and be sheep of the same herd- so I try- to survive, make them happy, while being somewhat true to myself...

well... the last fashion ART class in my FIT life... i love art... maybe not fashion art
