FIONA X. SUN: THE FRIDAY SHIFT
The beauty of nature winter snow and ice inspired the collection, and I tried to recreate the style of Wall Street businesswomen, and how people would think of Wall Street people dressed, gives them a little bit more fun at work but maintain classy. The style could be Avant Garde but wearable, from work to party, from business to happy hours, since the inspiration is related to natural; the colors I will be using will be close to grey, ivory and nude ……
Types of fabric choses that I will be using in this collection are:
Silk to gives that softness, flowy and feminine look on the dresses
Cotton, leather and wool to create the structure , Avant Garde look
Types of embellishments will be adding to collection as detail, such as stones, chains, etc.…
In the collection 2016 fall and winter, I will be incorporate “slow fashion” and “natural dyes” to have better quality, classic and something could last for a longer period. Fashion is all about is an individual statement of expression for everyone. Since the original inspiration/idea of this collection is the texture of snow and ice, something I took from nature, and I will present it will the natural fabric and technic.
