A not so realistic approach

On Wednesday, during our CAD (computer aided design) lecture, we were required to do an assignment which involved photoshopping an already perfect picture to make it more "magazine appropriate". We were given the tutorial, which was actually a rather good one, considering most tutorials are absoloutely horendous to work with. 

 Here is the final before and after results...

Funny how the second picture doesnt even look like the same person anymore.... a tad fake,, dont you think???

J u s t a t e a s e . . . . . . . . .

Well, although I am now on a short vacation from Fedisa,,, I have still been working on college work non stop, creating my final storyboards for my collection.

Although merely escaping death, the past week, through tonsillitis I have recovered and am half way done, with just one more week left...YIKES.

Throughout the past few weeks I have been sourcing and shopping around for my collection fabrics, its been such an exciting process and I cannot wait to begin constructing my range and see how my original vision will pan out.

Now we are 1 week away from d-day and I have finally bought all of my fabrics and am smiling from ear to ear. I found amazing fabrics and also got some fantabulous discounts with some of them...helps to have some connections :)

Soooo, I am going to keep you waiting just for one more week till you can see my collection boards,,,, but in the meantime I will let you in on some of my incredible fabrics... :)
