The COURAGEOUS Catwalk shared its artistry and its three principles of fashion design during Milan Fashion Week. 1. No self doubt. 2. Self acceptance / Diversity 3. Follow Your Passion was the message. The Catwalk’s premier collection, entitled “ The Flower Project: Fashion Redefined “ Spring/ Summer 2019, took center stage at 55club Milano in conjunction with the highly anticipated fashion event, Fashion Art and More8.0. A generous Italian welcome was received! https://www.facebook.com/events/172879336734186/
The Flower Project: Fashion Redefined is a synthesis of several artistic mediums: fashion design, photography, drawing, and collage. It’s roots are in fantasy and ultimately a form that questions fashion as art. Working in the mixed mediums of markers, colored pencils, graphite, and applied textures, flowers become transformed to create 2-dimensional fashion designs with an Haute Couture aesthetic.
The presentation becomes a fixed cawalk on display. Traditional fashion design knowledge is referenced such as cut, proportion, shape, form and accessory design.
The COURAGEOUS Catwalks’ next initiative is to have The Flower Project: Fashion Design Redefined curated at botanical and/or fashion museums and art schools.
