Hello Blog! West Coast Runways is back and is here to present work from the hard working Winter 2011 Fashion 130 class at Pasadena City College. For six short weeks they created a mini collection of three looks based on an inspiration and with a strong target market in mind. The group had a variety of ideas some in sportswear, eveningwear, lingerie, swimwear and even cosplay! These designers showed tenacity in their work, perfecting every aspect of the design process. They took a sketched idea, turned it into a flat drawing, draped or drafted a pattern, made numerous fit samples, then constructed the fashion fabric sample. Oh wait! Then Ms. Holly would say, “Don’t forget your paperwork! You must have a marker, spec sheet, cost sheet, and pattern card for each item.” But, they did it! What an accomplishment, but in the usual nature of fashion, they must move on. So here's to each of their next collection, and to their next semester:)
Cheers to us! Here are some photos from the day we all presented our collections!
