This morning I stumbled upon my old college art portfolio, circa 1987. I thought I’d share a few blasts from my past. Fashion design school in the 80’s. Picture me in my stone washed ankle zip jeans, multicolored Chuck Taylor high tops, black leather motorcycle jacket and BIG hair. Got it? (Cue The Smiths or The Cure on your Walkman and well be all set.)
These are drawings from my fashion Illustration class, which was one of my favorite courses. The ones above were done with chisel tip Design markers. (Can you smell them? Times 20 students?) I believe these were done referencing photos from magazines.
We most often drew from live models in class, like this pair, using water color paint and Caran d’ache crayons.
More class models, in watercolor. My professor had a great trunk full of apparel that she dressed the models in to teach us how to render various textures and types of fabrics.
It’s fun to look back and think about those days…more than 20 years ago. Who we were and how different we are today. Sometime I’ll share a bit more from this era. Maybe some of my apparel design sketches. Or a picture of my Big hair. :)
