My Prom Dress Design

My Prom Dress Design

As some of you may or may not know I would like to be a fashion designer/ photographer one day. I have a few sketchbooks filled with designs and I have a few design books as well. I have been into art since I was a little girl but it wasn’t till the 8th until I realized I wanted to go into fashion. I know a lot of people stereotype people who like this area of art- and so did I. But the older I got the more I loved it.
I like the art of design.
Not throwing on a crop top and booty shorts. That is not fashion to me. Fashion to me is taking an item of clothing and turning it into art.
Anyone can throw on clothes and call it fashion. It takes a real artist to take THAT fashion to a whole new level. I appreciate a design house like Chanel or Alexander McQueen or even those tiny, unknown designers that no one knows about because they take clothes to the next level. As much as I love some of Miley Cyrus’ s music and her wanting to be her own person besides Disney mania, I don’t like her clothes. I still think women should dress like women. No woman wants to see another woman half naked. Seriously.

The dress in the picture on the doll is the replica of the drawing of the dress. This was my first attempt to make an example of one of my ideas. I love the fabrics coming together to form a fan shape on the middle of the stomach because it is an added decoration that pulls the dress together. The gold leaf-like material reminds me of the crowns that Romans wore a long time ago. I think this dress would make a girl like a goddess in it. The white satin material complements the pearls as well as the gold because it isn’t stark white.
I really love this project that I did as well as designing the dress. (I have scribbles all over the paper just like any other artist, even if you can’t see them. Lol)
So ladies, from a 16 year old who doesn’t dress like Miley, please cover up.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day

6 Books I Recommend

6 Books I Recommend

There are so many books out there for young adults that you may become swamped trying to find the right one for you. Here I have six books that I have read and think are great. Not every book is to the taste of everyone but I tried to find something for every taste.
1. Divergent: This novel is very diverse. The main character goes through struggles in a relatively short amount of time as she tries to figure out who she is and who she wants to be.
2. Call The Midwife: I wouldn’t recommend this for boys to read if they don’t have a strong stomach. This book is a memoir of a nurse living in the 1950’s delivering babies to the poor in the UK.
3. The Great Gatsby: I absolutely love this book. If you don’t know about this book or it’s movie then you must live under a rock. The green light across the water is a very iconic picture from this book.
4. Cornelia And The Audacious Escapades Of The Somerset Sisters: This book is one of the cutest books I have ever read. It is about a girl who is the daughter of 2 famous pianists and she is very lonely. She befriends a neighbor and the adventures begin.
5. The Truth About Forever: In this book the protagonist learns about love and how to be more carefree. She learns that you have to trust others with your heart.
6. The Book Thief: This book is a very action-packed book to read. The protagonist learns to be daring and loving during the time of World War II. She learns that you should help others who are in need.

All of these books will teach you something valuable about others. I strongly recommend you read these books, even boys.
