thank you for all your emails today!
was overwhelmed by the response...i had like 20 waiting for me in my mailbox...but don't get me wrong, i love them! it's so very exciting to come home to them after a long day.
in all my flurry and excitement of school and being a new blogger, i realised i didn't explain what this blog is all about (looks like quite a few don't have a clue judging from the emails).
so, well, for the uninitiated, after almost 7 years of work, I have decided to pursue my dreams and return to school - specifically fashion design school. my course lasts till the end of this year and i have the option of staying on for an additional year. I'm still in Singapore...due to the sorry state of the Singapore - Pound exchange rate, i cannot go to Central Saint Martins, breeding ground of designers such as Alexander Mcqueen, Stella McCartney, etc. Also cannot go to Parson's in NY, whose alumni include Donna Karan, Tom Ford.. sob. just think, you might have had a world famous designer friend. think about the possible 'friend of the designer' discounts! oh well...
enough information? if not, please post a comment.....i've changed the settings to allow anonymous comments..meaning you can post a comment without registering with blogger.com. please leave me your comments!!! i would love to hear what you have to say. Just remember to leave your name if you post anonymously...so i can respond in kind! thank you charmaine for the 1st drastic-measures blog comment! read it here....
Altho it's been a hectic ride so far, and if it isn't obvious enough from my posts, I AM LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!!!
Today's activities - just 1 class today, Draping. Draping is the art of creating a garment pattern piece by draping and moulding material directly on a dress form - here's one.
so, we have like tonnes of these dress forms in class, and we're cutting cloth, draping and pinning them on the forms to make a skirt. It's just a different method of creating garment patterns...the other one being drafting (i.e creating the pattern directly on paper). it's a relatively relaxing class, and edmund our teacher is pretty nice. class ended at 3 (usually ends at 6). it's a nice change to have the afternoon free. wah hahahahah....one of my classmates guessed that i was 18! hahah...ok, ok i know it's stretching it rather thin but nonetheless, made my day! poor dear, little does she know...! see, the wonders of stopping work.. better than birds nest, i tell you.
random aside - dot's creations
some items i've created so far. these items are not part of the fashion design course..just what i was doing in my free time, even before school
Here's toon ling with her "dotty" bag
