FIDM "Scholarship Competition" 2010 (Designs)

Although FIDM (The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) is not my first choice in a Fashion education, I am going to try and win this competition for a one-year scholarship worth $23,000 to FIDM in Los Angles. I am entering the Fashion Design Project. Here are two of the designs I am entering, my inspiration and overall mood for the required seven piece collection is the Eighties, Grace Jones, Masculine-Tailoring, Skirt Suits, etc.

    good luck.

  2. you drew this? absolutely amazing! what do you use to do your sketches?


  3. All I can say is WOW! These are amazing!!
    I'm also thinking about applying to FIDM and some other fashion schools, but for merchandising. But I'm currently stressing if I should mention my blog or not to them. Did you?

  4. Mariam: Thanks so much, I use an Indian Ink Pen, and Prisma Colored Pencils, The second design has watercolor.

  5. Brunch Girls: I would mention my blog. What other schools are you thinking of applying to?

  6. Parsons, FIT, Pratt, maybe RISD, and it's a long shot but St. Martins in London. I'm also applying for the scholarship, but am doing the merchandising project.

  7. Wow!!I really love the skirt on the second sketch. Just by looking at the two sketches it definitely give me an idea on where you're going at on this collection.. hopefully there'll be a bit of color on the other pieces but all in all I love it!! you are really talented and I really mean it ^____^

  8. Wow wow wow!! I love this . I really adore the skirt on the second sketch and just by looking at these images, it gives me a sense of idea on what type of collection this is...Hopefully there will be a bit of color on the other pieces but all in all.. LOVE IT!! You really are talented and I really mean it ^^ good luck!!

  9. Hey I like your drawing style a lot, especially the models' expressions!

    Did you mean the coat-dress in the first photo to be slightly asymmetric in length? What would the skirt in the second picture be made of? Feathers? It's very cute.

    So gorgeous!
    The skirt in the second on is incredible!

    Good luck!

  11. Those are gorgeous. I wish I could sketch-- drawing is not one of my talents.

    One of my regrets is not pursuing fashion for my degree, so I think that's amazing you're pushing to go to a fashion institute! What did you want to concentrate on?


  12. Duck: Hey doll, thanks so much for the kind words. The the Coat-Dress is not supposed to be asymmetrical, I just wanted to emphasize on the movement. The skirt would be made of Faux-Fur and Feathers. I ordered some fabric swatches, I will be scanning those.

    Thnaks again, Duck!

  13. Ire A: Thanks, The skirt is very popular, it is very playful and sweet!

  14. Orville Cipres:
    The collection is predominantly black, I am going to use Red, and maybe another color. Thanks so much for the compliments!

  15. Beth:
    Thanks for the compliments. Fashion Illustration takes a lot of practice! Practice reallty makes perfect!

    I am going to concentrate on Fashion Design, BA Degree.

    Thanks again.
