I make art for a few reasons. We experience so much fragmentation of thought and feeling in life.
Personally for me, creating art is bringing things back together.I believe that all artwork has a purpose. It tells a story.
When you see an artwork it is as if it’s trying to whisper the artists story to you.Designing is also a form of art. The challenge of integrating into a new culture, the language of color and one’s personal dreams are what complies into fashion designing. My work is a narrative of events created in a wide range of media invents imagery rich with symbolism and deep personal meaning. These pieces are all tied into a personal concept based on hopes and dreams.
For me, clothing is interesting because it express who we are as human beings—it’s very personal and gives our own statement, and its never constant – it’s always changing depending our surroundings or what’s happening to us and our mood. When we think about fashion school as portrayed by popular culture, most of us can’t help but refer to reality shows like The Hills, which have glossed over the experience and left out the hard work that’s required from serious students. New York City—a hub for fashion students due to the schools like Parsons—has provided me with a more realistic picture of what life pursuing fashion design is like, as it quickly became clear that it’s more rigorous than we might think.
I think going into Parsons would help me fight with myself and It is definitely competitive because whosoever gets into it wants to be on top—the best in order to be that people need to express themselves and make people hear them. I focus on my work but I appreciate competition where competition isn’t directly against your friends, but we will compete with each other. I think competition is great if it inspires and motivates you to work harder and Parsons is where I’ll get this.
