Ciao Bella

I almost can't believe that the semester is coming to a close. The cliche saying, "It seems like it was just yesterday..." is so fitting right now. I've never learned so many things in such a short amount of time and I've never felt more fulfilled in my life. However, the pace was a little too "break-neck" for me so I am looking forward to a little down time over the holiday break, but I know myself and I can't stand to be static for long. I am already looking forward to next semester, spending the majority of my time doing Fashion Illustration and honing my art skills. I am going to experiment with watercolor and pen over the break and I get giddy just thinking about it. I am also looking forward to next Fall as well, since it is very likely that I will be studying Knitwear in Milan for the year. That leads me to the project that I am featuring today. My inspiration was the Marni Design House, based in Italy. Marni collections feature sophisticated colors and prints done to perfection. The silhouettes are uncommon, sometimes feminine and I love their styling. So, for my Computer project I did my version of Marni, with a theme centered around Italy. I've gotten much better at Photoshop and we used Illustrator to make the flats, which is exciting but there's so much more to learn. I also created the plaids and the print, using Photoshop. Hope you like! Ciao!
