Dress, Corset, and Slip // Handmade - my own

Yohji Yamamoto is one of the wisest and most talented people I've ever had the privilege of knowing without actually knowing. When I read his quotes and snippets from his autobiography (a book I hope to own soon - My Dear Bomb) I feel a certain kinship. There's something immensely compelling about a man who can unite people from vastly different demographic groups with ideas and thought.
On that note, I've been inspired to begin blogging again - as a motivator.
I've had this post as a draft with nothing written for close to 4 months now. I made these pieces for my independent study project final at school. I loved the process and I loved the results.
Since then, I took a trip to New York, as mentioned in a previous post. My time there was amazing, I made 3 new garments, which are far better than these, I met some of the most talented individuals I know and I realized that fashion was, in fact, the absolute and definite purpose of my life. Not because I think it's cool, or easy but because it let me say something. Say something worth expressing. Think thoughts worth sharing.
I hope this blog will inspire me to continue doing that - in spite of the fact that work is piling up, college applications are looming, my portfolio needs attention and I can't say for certain when I'll have time to make things or even think of making things.
I suppose I'll just have to make some...
