My First Ever Garment~ Aced.

Hello People. 
This is a "throwback" from last month, err, year. One of the subject we Fashion Design department have is the ITP or Prototype Development: a combination of all the main subjects to create a collection. It was a part of our End-term evaluation with the Jury from outside our own dept evaluated us. A nerve wrecking moment. Our first ever garment (for most of us atleast).
I'm featuring my garment for the most. I regret that I couldn't get the rest of my group mates' work. The whole process of selecting the theme, making the mood boards, color and swatch board, the muslin fit, etc. took us almost two weeks. But the final job of tracing the patterns, sourcing for the fabrics, cutting and constructing all took place in two days. That was a challenge accepted and executed. :)

I was a part of an all-girls team of five. After all the thoughts and ideas pooled in, we decided to go for Pop Art as the main theme. We chose Betty and Veronica from Archie's Comics as our muses. 

I'm wearing the garments I designed and constructed. It's a good thing being size 8 in college as all of us work on a standard size 8 dress forms. *giggles*

My outfit consisted of: a) a shirt/top with convertible collars and mitered detailing.
                                   b) a detachable asymmetrical flared skirt.
                                   c) a graphic printed pencil skirt.

This next one is by Jagrity Phukan, also from Assam like me :) except she is actually an Assamese. Their theme was named "Banaras ki Ghaat", very ethnic, very chic.

It's a good feeling to do the Itp. Ignoring the fact that it did put a lot of pressure on us. However, it's all worth it, especially when you get an A for your effort. Teehee... All with the God's grace. :)

XoXo. God bless.
