Portfolio overview: Cutting project

Cutting project - cover

The second project made during Graduate Diploma CSM ( 2015-16).

Being half-Japanese but growing up in Brazil, the kimono had always been an elusive piece to me.

And even though I studied in Tokyo for 2 years, it was only in London, many years later, that I bought my first one!

Traditionally worn in a very constricting way and with MANY layers as not to show any skin, in this project I wanted to use similar geometrical pattern pieces to make a more dramatic silhouette.

Great ideas but zero execution?

Get off Pinterest already, you won't learn anything until you start cutting and making!

There's no need to spend a fortune or reinvent the wheel. But if you know you're gonna get in your own way, ask for help:
