ANTI LOGO DAY!
We used heat-set materials to create our own “anti” logo. We focused on color, shape, simplicity and composition to create abstract designs for our own, personal logo.
Yahaira loved the freedom of this project. Yes! Their is freedom in creating your own, wearable design! Thank you, Yahaira!
Before the winter break, DYFashioners took time out to model and share their circle skirts. Above, Argenis Menendez, shares his multi-layered creation. Argenis combined wool melton with silk organza to create a successful juxtaposition of fabrics. The team gave him a “firecracker” applause for design!
During making my project I ironed it on transfer paper , I used studs , scissors and I got my idea from no where but my imagination. By Stephan
Great work by Stephan! The materials were giving you such a hard time, but your perseverance was king. Can’t wait to see what ‘s next.
We had a great visit with New York designer, Lisa Perry. We had a lot of questions about her love of fashion, her business, and where she gets her ideas. It was great to hear how she got started, her knowledge of textiles and fabrics, but most of all, her use of art as a source of inspiration. Thank you Lisa Perry!
We were so inspired we got right to work on our own designs! Here’s Yahaira hard at work on the machine and Katerine showing off the waistband she just attached to her circle skirt.
DYF - Day 2 - Participants work with a variety of fabric swatches, categorizing them according to use, character, and the meaning fabric can lend to clothing. Does a uniform sewn in wool express authority? or conformity? Do garments in silk and organza express wealth? How do the fabrics our clothes are made from tell a story?
Here are Argenis and Yahaira finding out by making a MOOD BOARD. #fabricidentity
Welcome back DY Fashioners! Great kick-off to our DYF (DreamYard Fashion) Class 2013. We started the season by creating our own Infinity Scarves to get our hands back on the machine. Veteran participants (Gabby Brito and Emily Brito) helped first-timers learn the ropes and still had time to make not one but TWO infinity scarves. #infinityscarves #BronxMade
