Pictures I took of my blue overall which kinda looks like work clothing, you know, those blue onesies workers wear a at a construction site 😀 It used to have two basic straps over the shoulders but one went off so I made a neck holder top out of it! I love this one, from the first day I bought it in England, but it seems like I’ve grown or it shrinked because it’s a bit to tight now. Not visible on pictures but it’s just uncomfy Therefore I’ll sell it. I think. Or I’ll think of a way to make it larger. Haha!
I am officially accepted for FASHION DESIGN STUDIES in Leipzig. Whuuuaaa. I spent 3 super intense weeks on creating my art portfolio, because I went to the advanced arts course in high school indeed, yet I haven’t ever collected my art or suchlike. I started from zero and really transformed my usual everyday life into an artsy non-stop period of learning and creating. My parents went on holidays in those exact 3 weeks so I had the flat for myself, and trust me, I needed it. Paper, pencils, watercolors, charcoal, markers, fabric, thread etc everywhere! Eventually I managed to put together 16 cardboards with diverse pieces of art, from sketches to figurines, watercolor portraits, charcoal nude drawings and photographs of my personally designed and sewn clothes to collages. There is one thing I learned and now KNOW from experience, which is:
If you are forced to do something and keep on track (at pressure), you can become good at things you haven’t ever done before. It’s not about what you THINK you can or can’t do; because actually you can, if you only started!
But, to be fair, its way easier to keep on track if you do it with a purpose and a deadline. I think I would probably never have started drawing if it wasn’t for that application. After some tries I would get disappointed and just skip it. And this is the gap you need to pass…
So I went to the interview with my portfolio, thinking this would be so easy as its a private university and they will take everyone they can get. Way off the mark!! This guy there asked a lot of complex questions, also technical stuff that I’ve never heard off (like computer programs for cutting patterns etc), then how I would do this and that, how I would react in that situation or what young fashion designers can apply for after studies except from normal design jobs. In the end he evaluated me as a positively straight freak who is both self confident and modest. Additionally, I am, according to him, really openminded and internationally interested, which is good. Soo I got accepted straight away and it took a load off my mind!
The days after I fell into a sort of a limbo because I had nothing to do anymore? And I doubted if the way was the right for me…. well, my days were filled again quite quickly as I am looking for a flat atm. Busy stuff, so glad when its finally done. But yeah, the feeling of uncertainty stayed and I even doubted my competence to do that study. But today I feel better about it, also because my mom always says that I should just start and I can skip everytime hahah 😀 Because obviously I am just scared of that new thing and its always good to do the things your mind tells you you can’t (no stupid things please).
Ohh my this was a long post. If you read it all: thank you so much, i love you 😀 If not, never mind, I mainly do it for myself 🙂 Now enjoy some of the pictures I took of Lara wearing my clothes! xxx
