So my painting is finally up and about. There you see it: three months of my life. For clarification, this was a school project. I'm in the visual arts program and for our assignment, we had to create a 3 panel painting that protrayed experimental tactics. What inspired me for this painting was actually a quote by Coco Chanel: Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. If you can't tell in the pictures, there are animals coming out from the clothing. (Ex: minks morphing out of the fur jacket) I think that a lot of the time, people should look beyond the actual materialistic aspect of clothing. There is so much more that goes into the garment then most people will see. Two of my panels were inspired by Marc by Marc Jacob's ads and as for the third, inspired by Lula magazine.
As for what I'm wearing today: shorts-Aritzia, Shirt-American Eagle, Shoes-Dolce Vita.
