WeLcome to the New ErA

Hey there, here I come with a new post, this time with some fashion sketches I did for the Inspired Competition 2011, a creative ideas competition which takes place every year in Romania. I obviously participated on the fashion design section, and the 2011 theme for it was traveling as adventure, a combination of an old culture with a new culture or the jouney from an old to a new age. That's how I actually understood the theme, so I chose my work to be inspired by the new age of the internet, and all the things that it brings along, like social media and everything the net can offer these days but I still kept some features from the last century (the 50' and 60's). The dresses in my sketches are inspired by the clothing of the 50's and 60's but come with fantasy-like features of this era,  i.e. internet or social media prints and the phone. Hope you enjoy my ideas and I'll return with a new post soon!

And the ones below are pictures of the boards I made for my inspired project.

Colour Explosion...

Here I come with a new post, a drawing  I made in highschool. Its a composition about two complementary worlds getting connected, being very similar in colours. The big world  is represented by circle shapes more than the one complementary to it. The technique I used is watercolours mixed with chalk pastels. And yep there is a bit of a colour explosion in it, as I used many different colour combinations, from silver to blues, reds, purple and yellow. Don't know which colour is your favourite...I just know I enjoyed creating this little art piece of mine! Hope you like it!

Static vs Dynamic

I'd like to show you some of my compositions I made in my second year of college. It's about three groups of compositions, in form of a circle, a square and triangle. Each of them has a static and a dynamic version. This whole theme of compositions in form of geometrical shapes was based on some symbols like divinity - triangle, the universe - circle and earth - square. For each composition we had to use specific colours (watercolours), red for the square, blue for the circle and yellow for the triangle, each of them we were aloud to mix only with black and white. It was kinda hard to think of a static composition in a square, I found it easier to do a static composition in a circle and triangle and  I came to pretty good results after all, my professor liked them :P. Well, hope you'll find them interesting too, I'm hoping for feedback, thanks and have a peachy day!:D

Unicorn girl & Co.....

I've been thinking to post some of my old fashion sketches, the ones I made in highschool. You'll see how I used to draw in my school years and compare it with my fashion drawings from my college years, there is a bit of a difference. You will see that in some of my next posts. Until then I will present you two fashion sketches which I made for some school competitions. The first one is a sketch inspired by a unicorn, a very fantasy like outfit and the second one is a sketch with two models, again with some fantasy like outfits, more focused on the skirts. In both of my sketches I used different techniques combining watercolours with chalk pastels. Hope you like my works and if you want you can sent me some feedback also, thank you!

Eco Art

Hello there, I know  its been more than 2 weeks since my last post...but here is a fresh one, its about another exhibition we had at school in the Unirii Square, Timisoara. It was in 2010 end of March beginning of April, don't know the date exactly anymore, sorry. Anyway the exhibition had an eco theme, and we all had to make artworks out of different recycled objects, I made a dress out of beer corks, many of them, over 100, didn't really count them. It's a very heavy dress, not really wearable, just for the really courages ones :P! The whole exhibition was really nice, with all the other very original works of my faculty mates. Hope you'll find it interesting!

This is how my eco cork dress looks like dressed on!
