Here's a photoshop collage I am working on as part of a Digital Visual Journal I am making. The crystals used in this image include some of Artist, Carly Waito's. Whom I am currently studying her body of work as inspiration for the development of my next clothing collection.

Home sweet Future

NakaHouse, Located in Hollywood Hills, Designed by XTEN Architecture

I came across this house today through Trendland and I was just absolutely floored when I saw it. This uber contemporary bundle of joy is literally the exact vision I have of (one of) my dream homes. Absolutely stunning with its sparse, open space. Huge, flawless crystal clear windows, with an amazing view of the fresh greens outside...how can one resist?

I get that a lot of people are obsessed with the idea of Baroque style or even Spanish style homes as their "Dream Home." I appreciate that aesthetic as well, as I would in a heartbeat want to live in one of those beauties, but I don't see how one can deny the beauty in this methodically designed space. Maybe it's just me, what do you think?

Here's some more jaw-dropping pictures of this wonderful home...

Periodic Table of Letters

Today I stumbled across this font type by an Artist who I believe goes by the name of Alex Hynes. Needless to say, I  was completely in awe of the simplicity and modernity of this design. 

Something about the way this was layed out reminded me of a period table. I'm not sure what you think of it, but its pretty cool to me.

Short post today. Keeping it simple with a Black and White version of my previous illustration of a Jil Sander look. Hope your weekend has been lovely so far... more posts coming up soon!

FNO 2011!

So, it's been a little while since my last post - sorry about that! This past week has been completely hectic with NY Fashion Week having started, Fashion's Night Out and not to mention getting back to "real" Parsons mode all over again, this semester. I only say 'real' because up until yesterday I had not had my Concepts(Design) and Methods(Sewing) classes just yet. Now, I'm all caught up, and school is back in full swing. The pile of homework hasn't been slacking either...I've currently got growing stacks waiting to tackle. 

However, I did decide to take a breather and catch up with you guys on one of my most memorable of the few past days: Fashion's Night Out! I've been participating in this event since it was originally created, exactly three years ago. I must say though, I thought this year was the best by far! Maybe it was all the free stuff, the heels clacking all over the New York City streets or the champagne induced laughter heard all around. Needless to say, it was pretty great! My night started out at McQueen, where my Boyfriend(David), my friends and I met up to collect the key...

Seeing Sequins

Prada Handbag & Dress
It's no surprise that we are seeing tons of sequins, every which way we turn. Last season, a handful of designers used these little shimmering plastics we all love! However, none captured my heart quite the way as Prada did using them. Speaking of which, have you checked out their Fall/Winter Ad Campaigns? It's just to die for, wouldn't you say?

Needless to say, coming across them, they were just too irresistible for me not to illustrate one of their looks. The model's porcelain skin and dewy complection against the pop colors of the accessories strategically thrown around with these other planet-like human beings? FLAWLESS.

After thousands of ink spills, magazine cut outs and hours of drawing and doodle-ing here we are. 

This blog will be a collective of all things that interest me.
Fashion, Music, Photography, Patterns, Fabrics and other random inspirational images.

I will be posting my illustrations here daily, and you may feel free to join me and follow my progress here. All drawings posted on here are done by me unless I specifically note otherwise.
