It's Been A Long ... Long While!

Quite some time has passed since my last posting. I'd like to share some of my very recent personal endeavors.

This past winter (in January), I decided to pursue my wildest dreams of becoming a fashion designer. I applied and was accepted into a part-time fashion program in pattern-making and apparel design. I've been wholly devoted ever since -- drafting various skirts, constructing, sewing, draping, etc., all while maintaining my full-time job! I guess the old adage holds true, "if there's a will, there's a way!" While I was attending design school, I realized that I needed to develop my creativity alongside my technical skills. I came across an abbreviated, but intensive summer program sponsored by Arts of Fashion at the La Cambre Mode[s] in Brussels, Belgium. I knew deeply in my heart that I had to go, so I made it happen!

During my stay, I met talented, forward-thinking students and was instructed by the most recognized Professors in Fashion Design. I truly couldn't have asked for more! Needless to say, I received my certification of completion as evidence of completing all my required projects!

Here is a photo of my collection on exhibition for the final day of the program.

Since my return, I've been working feverishly on a few side projects to add more meaningful content for my readers and the Studio Purpura Fashion Blog community! Please exercise your patience with me while I finalize these projects! Until then, I will continue to deliver essential content on fashion!

XOXO,
Studio Purpura
