Origami Crunch Time

When I get a project that is not from work (thus no daily cut off time), I often go overboard to complete it. I would disappear into my own world & working away till it's way past sleep time. 
But hey, that's what you might do too when you are passionate about something, right?

Here are some of the photos depicting the process of fusing the origami concept into a garment...


Prototype on mini mannequin.

 Life-size experiment in paper. Tedious part of this design has begun.

The crunch time started when I began hand stitching my garment design after one mini prototype & one life-size experiment.Stay tune for the next report regarding the final outcome of the garment. For some unforeseen reasons, it morphed!

Dolphin & Dandelion

Coloured with graphic markers

I met up with a friend whom I have not met for more than 10 years.

Over an extended lunch, he and his fiancee shared with me their testimonies including a prophesy they once received. It was a good inspiring session. The next day, I decided to illustrate for them the prophecy that means so much to them in a pictorial form.

Van Gogh wannabe?

Here are some of the design exercises done during the fashion course...

Produced colour palettes to match the samples given.

Task : Paint a fruit with secondary colours.

Copied designs from magazines

Practised sketching fashion designs... this was totally random & impromptu.

 Monochrome painting of Van Gogh according the original sample on the left. 

Not bad eh for someone who for two decades didn't like painting because she finds it difficult to control the brush?

These exercises brought back some good ol' memories of my first year in Interior Design.
