Back at it again! I’m starting a new collection for this semester. It will be a men’s line consisting of five looks. Who knows, that actually may change to six, we’ll see.
This collection was inspired by the hero cycle. Joseph Campbell wrote about this cycle. A “hero”, or in reality, a person, has a calling of some sort to go on a quest or journey. He accepts this calling. (I’m using he as all inclusive for males and females). As he travels on this quest, there are many encounters to face before the ultimate goal is able to be reached. Within each trial, there is a different approach that needs to be taken in conquering it; and, through each trial, it brings out a shimmer of the self that’s hidden. The golden self. Every man’s golden self is hidden, and it takes the trials of his journey to bring it out….for however long it might be. Once the journey is complete, it starts all over again. But as the man on the journey finds his golden self, they also have to find they’re bliss.
So I found this cycle to be intriguing and it immediately sparked a vision in my mind. It took a while to finally translate my ideas onto paper, but I finally did. I’ll be posting my progress on this collection and the illustrations soon.
Editorial shots taken of my senior collection. I’m so proud of how it all turned out!
Coming soon! There will be a process of beginning a new collection very soon. Posts will be put up so that you can follow my work and let me know if you want a version of the pieces that will be made!

As this collection comes to a close, there is still more work to be done. No, there isn’t more sewing to be done, however, photos must be shot. Thankfully, I won’t have to hire anyone to take them for me.
The difficult thing about taking photo shoots is organizing them. It’s hard to set up a day and time where everyone will cooperate and be able to attend at the same time. It’s quite an inconvenience. However, it will be done, no matter how many different days or times of day I will have to shoot. I am, however, excited to take these photos and share my vision of how I see these looks, along with the inspiration behind them. Once this is complete, a new chapter will begin.
