Hey fashion victims. This past Monday was by far one of the most exciting and exhilarating classes of my FIT career… it was our first model fitting class for our thesis garments! Even though this was not a final fitting, it was an absolutely fabulous experience to see the muslins we’ve all been feverishly slaving away on come to life. The energy in the room was most definitely fast paced and oozing with creativity and problem solving. Each member of class was able to critically look at their creations and brainstorm with professors and models to improve the fit and aesthetics of their masterpieces. I even had the privilege of fitting my gown on Armani’s former muse and fit model of 20 years.What an amazing opportunity. Lucky for me, I was fortunate enough to have minimal issues with fit, and with the help of some brilliant minds, I was able to figure out how to make my gown even better! I’d share more pictures, but at the moment the front of my bodice is quite sheer…. a bit to risque…. but im confident it’s going to turn out to be a real show stopper.
Hey there fashion victims. It’s with an immense sense of delight that I can announce to you all that I, Anthony Tubolino, will be representing F.I.T’s most illustrious specialization of Special Occasion in the Future Of Fashion blog! For the past two years, I have had the privilege of working among twenty-one talented young designers who constantly try to push the limits of their designing capabilities and reinvent the preconceived notions/ideas about what exactly qualifies a garment as “evening wear”. It’s always an amazing experience to witness the different approaches everyone implements in their design process, and seeing the finished product of a beautiful garment.
Since we all first embarked on our journey at F.I.T. some four years ago, getting into the BFA fashion show has been an aspiration and dream among myself and many of my fellow senior students. It is now at a time when success and achieving this goal is almost tangible, the light can almost be viewed at the end of the metaphorical tunnel. Pressures are mounting and its time to work! At this point in the game everyone has met with our absolutely fabulous critic, Mathieu Mirano, and have chosen the garments they hope will be sashaying down the catwalk. It is at this point that everyone starts devising their plans and taking the necessary preliminary steps to ensure the proper execution of what could possibly be the most important garments of their academic careers.
Until next time fashionistas,
