Eco-FAshion... Final Year Art Show cont...

              Back in March was our Alternative Fashion Show at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and it was just FAB. A final year student ,Lauren Watkis, debuted her eco-fashion collection. It was more in the likeness of recyclable fashion really but her designs were beautiful and the construction was remarkable...Paper dresses and plastics, looking all fashionable. For the Final Year Show, it was more of the same that I've come to tag as being "so Lauren". Couture- like gowns from alternate materials, I'm loving it. Another student who brought this alternate fashion ideas to the forefront  was Nikki Ann Chambers. Beautiful girls, such darlings, love them. 

Instead of droning on let me allow you to be the judge...pretty decent pieces ( I still had to add that.LOL)
Feedback would be greatly appreciated.......

Final Year Art Show at the Edna Manley College

I am an Art student right? Well, technically.... I am a Textiles student... Fashion Design, but I appreciate all art forms... So I make it my point of duty to visit the gallery especially at school, called "the Cage". Ok, so it is written a bit differently and all that, but you get the basic idea, pretty much, right?
As the grand finale of the semester, the Final Year BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) students, have to display their work... ( its is the most anticipated event of the academic year).
My friend, Nashade and I decided to go view the pieces and were really excited about the fashion pieces.  D-I-V-I-N-E!
Enough of my Rambling though, its time for you to see the real deal....
Behold! (LOL, I know I'm just silly)....


 What I wore: Mini-Trench- No name, Jeggings -Mossimo, Graphic Tee - No Name, Boots- Clarks
A few shots of the pieces from "The Butcher":-
This in all fairness is like the female anatomy... The Vagina
Definitely the Ass

The Leg and Uterus is all that is clear to me here...
Gross things break...
I certainly wouldn't mind taking home these two pieces...


There is just something about them that compelled me to take a pic...

My department's lovelies....
This is Sasha... I've had the pleasure of a first hand view  of her development process...
Below are a few of  the pieces from Sasha's Collection (Label) -
SOLITAIRE*




 
Sasha's pieces were really colourful and were one of 
Two collections displayed in a Black N' White Themed Room.
Like her open Group on Facebook Solitaire

So, you guessed it, Sasha was Black. And then...
There were Jehan's pieces...look into the white...




Beautiful pieces, beautiful models.....
