The 36th Annual Fashion Show: Elysium is less than a week away. I am excited and can’t wait to see how it works out!
I’m a scene coordinator for the scene Chloris. I major in Fashion Merchandising, but also have an interest for all things related to fashion, including designing, styling, and sewing. I decided to be a part of the 36th annual fashion show this year. When I worked as an intern last year for “Fashion Is…Diversification”, I saw how difficult it is to plan the scene and control all of the models, but at the same time, how amazing when we made it.
However, I’m not majoring in fashion design, so I thought the best way to join the fashion show was to borrow clothing from apparel stores and styling them. When I thought about that again, I finally decided on making the clothing by myself. Once I made that decision, my mind moved forward to create apparel by myself. I like challenges in whatever I want to do, even if it is difficult. My potential will be nothing without execution. So, this is really the first time in my life that I have made clothing. I didn’t know how to sew or make patterns at all, but this wonderful opportunity drives me to learn more about making clothing by myself. This would be definitely valuable for my career.
Basically, our outfits focus on femininity with sexiness. This spring summer trends are involved in sheer fabric so that we obtain the style of translucency as well.
Being an international student, I wanted to take in kimono textiles, which are used in traditional Japanese clothing. I like to mix different field of fashion, just like coordinate street style with high-end brand. I don’t want to show kimono as a traditional Japanese wear, and I want to show kimono as a part of modern fashion. Our fashion show is going to live stream internationally (link here), so I hope my family and friends will have fun watching our production.
