The Woodbury Fashion Donor Dinner Event held at the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History was a celebration of the University’s Senior Fashion Class of 2013.
As one of the school’s Design Instructor, along with iconic Red Carpet Designer Eduardo Lucero, Kathryn Hagen and Jared Gold to mention a few, I couldn’t be happier with the student’s body of work.
Ironically enough, as Fashion becomes more and more relevant in today’s society, true Fashion Design can be considered a dying art. As computers and overseas factories start taking over the market place, the Designer who actually invests his time in the craft of hand drawing and illustrating, draping, flat patterning, fitting, tailoring and sewing garments himself is the true artist in this business, and the only one capable of creating the new.
As an artist myself, I see no better way to contribute than to mentor new generations of Fashion Designers and Illustrators, and pass along the teachings that were once passed down to me, by artist whose words will forever resonate through my work.
Stay curious, stay naughty!!
