A memory from my childhood.

Here are a few photos of my recent project for school, we had to make an outfit with 98% cotton. By focusing on myself for this project, I based my entire collection on my childhood experience. This memory is always colorful and happy in my mind and I still today refer to myself as an 8-year-old girl. By looking through some childhood pictures, I noticed that my clothes used to have a lot of patches on them. I decided to draw inspiration from patch working and quilting often used in children’s clothing for renforcement or simply for design. Patches evoke many things such as a kid falling over and tearing his clothes, boy scouts achieving something new, a band patch sewn on to a tee shirt or your favorite cartoon character on a patch. All these things represent key aspects of my childhood but also childhood that many people ca relate too. Using silhouette, concept, material and the techniques inherent in patch making I will explore the traits I posed as a child including: imagination, playfulness, anger, innocence, safety, happiness, stubbornness, loudness and the longing to be noticed.  This project is part of a competition, and I got selected to be part of the 9 finalists ! In 3 weeks, 3 students will be picked. 1st place gets, 5000$ and 10.000$ for your senior thesis, 2nd place gets 3000$ and 3rd place gets 2000$. I'm very nervous, this is the first time I get picked for something ! I'll let you guys know what happen's ! xx
