A women today is born gentle and raised strong.
Women of the modern age are much more empowered than women before. As a girl, she can get an education. As a women she can start her career. She can choose to marry or remain single. While she masters the art of balancing profession with her personal life, which could make life much more complicated, she becomes stronger emotionally. She is independent.
The armour reminds me of empowerment, as knights were in period times. Its metallic quality is what intrigues me the most—something so hard to be shaped and molded into a piece of garment.
Metalloid-the name of my coursework, signifies the strength and gentleness of a women today. She can be independent, powerful, yet feminine, soft. I retained the feminine silhouette of the female figure and use dark, metallic colours for the fabric. The colours, though dark, are still tinged with femininity (Lilac Charcoal, purple grey [or Midnight Wolf as I like to call it]) With the use of chains on a structured corset top, I hope to accentuate the strength of a female while defining her feminine, graceful silhouette. I played with proportions to elongate the figure, so she may appear of a taller stature, much more effective in commanding attention and authority, or so I’ve heard. The show dress is really a piece of work very much inspired by the armour. The garment accentuates the shoulders, bosom and hips, to give a more defined feminine silhouette.
This project celebrates the independency, the liberty, the strength and the splendor of a woman today.
Took this photo ages (and ages I do mean ages!) ago in the school one morning. The sky was layered by the clouds, and the sun was amazing. One good reason to like school I guess.
*NOT BY ME. I wish my room could be this organized-chaotic.Minimalism, very modern and chic. It’s living art.I would love to explore interior design one day.
Took this lovely photo this morning at dawn. View from my apartment in Singapore. You can see Marina Bay Sands. I love the warm, musk that the sunlight brings in the morning as it beams through the clouds. It’s like embracing the world. What a lovely sight.
A little somethin’ I did for my class this year! For the Youth Day Funfair!
I sketched the nail lacquer bottles based on the ones I own, which isn’t that much (just changed colours). Hand turned out a lot paler when scanned into the computer, but we managed to add some colour to it (last minute on day of funfair) so it doesn’t look freakishly pale.I like the great colour contrast though, it did make the stall a lot more interesting and attracted more peeps to come support!
A design I did for my class,413 of 2011. If you invert pi, 3.14, you get 41.3 and it looks a little like the word PIE. Clever word/number play huh?
It’s really cute with the Pie Monster (Cookie Monster reference)
Now, 33 PIE LOVERS own this shirt!
I thought this picture was quite unique. A girl in a perfect free (coincidently metallic!) standing at the diving board. Raises so many questions. Is she trying to end her life? Or seek a experience? Or simply live in that moment when she contacts the cold water?
Took this photo while I was in this lit up cave when I went back to China this June. It’s an accidental photograph, but i found it interesting, how light moves in motion adn how a camera can just happen to capture it.
Bought this sometime ago. Love how it reminds you of a medieval armour. This would be very in sync with my coursework. So perhaps the next time I could design some jewelry inspired by metallics too.
