so its only been about 10 weeks since this project was assigned, but its all done now! and im really happy with it. the basic outline was to create a collection of hand embroidered items that fit along with a design brief. we had 3 briefs to choose from, and the general gist of the one i chose was- preppy, chic, urban, along with like 50 other ideas (craziest design brief ever.) so i decided to go for a modern-preppy chic feel, inspired by upper-east side glam.
the first picture is a brooch, the second is actually a necklace (it wasn't totally finished in time for the photo shoot), the third is a crest, and the fourth is obviously a neck detail on a tank top.
i really liked this project way more than i thought i would have, i was a little turned off by hand embroidery, but i really like the new edgy feel that i gave my work. and hopefully when i have some more time to work on things i'd really like to expand this collection.
