Port Au Prince, ...
Last september, I started the first class for the draping certificate at FIT here in New York. The final assignment was to design something out stripes integrating the concepts explored during the semester.
The jacket is a combination between the faux tailored collar on a jacket that I own and the sleeves described on the leather jacket in Lucia Mors first book. The finishing is not very important in this class so I didn’t line it, although the collar is faced and the seams are binded.
The skirt is a uninterrupted spiral (not easy to notice even in real life so the pictures are not helping).
Anyway, I would never wear that in real life (I did not make it with the idea of someone actually wearing it, therefore the jacket does not have a lot of inner structure), It was fun to make.
Some really cheap thing I found on 35th street. I am completely unable to identify it but it is a real pain to work with as it frays and is extremely unstable when not used on straight or cross grain…
