phyllis balm student award

yay, my first scholarship that i have won. its worth three thousand dollars and i got chosen out of my faculty to win this award.  it came with good timing as i might not be working as much this summer, which i am very ok with suprisingly.  

I've decided that this summer i might start my clothing line.  Nothing big esp since im not really the interested in ready to wear, but something to keep me busy.  I wont be making large collections mostly just limited ed. things, more for the people that know how to take one piece and be versatile with it.  I've already picked the fabrics out for this said summer collection. fingers crossed i dont get too bored of the ready to wear-ish like things. 

In my weaving class we are doing a workshop with Luise Lemieux Berube, to design images to be brought back to Montreal and woven on a jacuard loom.  ive been incorpurating contours from the photoshoot i did a while back with my silks and super-imposing them onto the original Hokusai print that inspired the piece.  im so excited with the way these images are looking i think I am going to start drawing again and use these created images to be large scale drawings.

show n sale is this week. lots of projects due and three presentations. time to work.. and work.. and work.. till i get kicked out of the school lol

summary of recent events

modeling for defy gravity designs, with the links collective jewellery show at tantra. very shaky runway- bobbed every time you stepped on it. check the girl with the  stank face behind me lol

one shouldered linen dress that i made for the after party of parkshow. i think im going to enjoy wearing this in the summer.

Park Show

so saturday has now come and gone, was at the cultural center from 9:45 to about 11:30ish.  what a long day

started off with hair and makeup then to photoshoots

break to grab bubble tea from TryAgain and sushi from Sakana... found out that happy hour prices do not work for take out.. oh well i still was craving it so we got the love boat delux anyways. 

i pretty much proved i can eat the whole boat to myself.

nice ashley pig out at a runway show when your already considered one of the bigger models next to the 15 year olds haha. it was worth it.

on to rehearsals.. helping direct with other photoshoots which i found i quite enjoy

time for touch ups, and into freeze modeling.

show time!

the show was pretty good and house of dangerkat was amazing as always. everything was well planned out right down to having us pose in "doll boxes" (the theme was porcelain dolls). 

went out to eat after with the boys, boy some of the looks i got with that hair and makeup...

to new beginings

so this blog was originally started to chart the production of a show that was supposed to happen last year. however this did not work out.

this year is a different year

-i have applied for a multidisciplinary grant to be able to put on a performance at the engineered air theater in the epcor center. developments will be posted. as of now i do not hear back from the grant for about four months.

- last weekend was artAWEARness at ACAD where i modeled for Ashleigh and Lowell 

-this Saturday is the Park Show at the Chinese cultural Center.

park show has been a mighty force in the fashion world with creative themes, amazing venues and promoting local artists/designers/models.  the park show is a fundraiser for the park sale, a free out door market.

- the model call was yesterday for fashion week, lots of competition as i heard 70% of the models are supplied from mode models so we will see how that turns out
