Hi dreamies, CASS here! As you all know, I’ve been studying in a fashion designing course for about 2 months now, & to be true, I’ve experienced quite a lot, besides meeting new people from different aspects, I also tried out some different experiences. So enjoy my story telling ♥
As for the garments that I’m wearing above, it was a finished project from a group of my seniors.
Actually I tried out a lot of fitting lately for our seniors in the same course, & it was a breathtaking experience because they have such creativity that I couldn’t really achieve in my current state, I still need to work extra hard to reach that level TT
They don’t simply design plain clothes for their collection, they came out with so much special and exotic designs, and some that I found extremely beautiful. As for all the complicated stitching & drapery, I can’t imagine how I’m going to do it myself in the future haha.
This is literally the first small test that I had for one of my classes, and to point out that it’s the first day of school. I think the outcome of my design is quite strange, actually the color and pattern was better before I added all the floral printing and stuff, but I’m a flower freak, so what! haha
So basically we have drawing classes, I mean the one about sketching & learning human body proportions. I need to claim that this is not my artwork, it’s actually my lecturer’s drawing. Oh my god, she is such a pro!
And this hideous one is mine haha, bare with it guys, I’m not good at drawing human faces, and also bodies.
Basically, this is what we draw besides the faces, actually I’ve done some with colours but didn’t manage to take pics before I pass it up to my lecturer.
The last photo was actually a recent one, or should I say yesterday ^^ I think I kinda improve with the body proportions. It’s easier for me to draw a human body with right proportions now.
I also learn french in school, and it’s cool to actually learn a language that you’ve been longing to learn. The starting was fun, but it gradually gets complicated, sometimes I can’t really focus in french class because the long hour classes that I took before french class, life is just so hard nowadays TT
” Bonjour! Je suis CASS, J’ai 18 ans ” (Just a simple sentence to introduce myself )
Actually, each of our classmates owns a mannequin, obviously a female one, if you can see the body parts haha. As for the black strings that you see on the mannequin, we need to pin it one by one, as in ‘tons of pins for just one string’.
At first it was soooooooooooo damn hard, but for now it’s better, but still hard, because we don’t just simply pin it, we have techniques for the pinning and also need to measure a lot of proportions before we pin. And the hardest part is the string needs to stay straight.
I named my mannequin KSANDRA, as you might not know, it’s my instagram name. KSANDRA is quite good for a hugger, I mean I’m always the one who’s hugging her, and she basically stays at school, I don’t bring her home haha ^^ As my lecturer said, I’ll be spending my lifetime with her, maybe a dreamy life haha.
My desk, I mean this is still considered clean and neat, but the table in my hostel is sooo stuffy omg TT Plus the table is too small.
I think a fashion designing course is a fun thing to study, but it’s also tougher than other normal courses, because other than research work, we need to also finish physical projects like drawing, stitching and all, we not only work on computers, but we also work on paper and fabric.
Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with all the assignments but I still don’t feel stressed out or anything, I think my high school trained me well haha!
This is just the very start, so I think I’ll have a lot more to share after this. Soon I’ll also post stuff about my personal books (the pic above). If you guys wanna know more about my school life, or about the school’s information and all, feel free to comment or email me, I’ll try my best to help out.
