Rick Owens - Edgy, Feminine, French
First couple weeks of school has been amazing! My fear of possibly not liking fashion design or possibly suck at it has disappeared completed. What a great feeling. I still have so much to learn, to improve and to discover, but my mind has become a dry sponge that is ready to soak up everything and anything.
During the beginning of FIDM's fashion design program, students are asked to discover and develop their personal style and their perspective, which is exactly what I have been pondering about for the past 3 to 4 months. So I am slowly visualizing and synthesizing, with guidance.
A friend introduced me to Rick Owens, an American designer who started designing in 1994, and I immediately fell in love with his stuff - Edgy, Feminine, and French. The style is a little different from what I usually like, which is very colorful, but something about these strong shapes and lines made my eyes pop. I might be onto something.
Some of my favorites from his Spring 2010 Collection. You can see the entire collection HERE.
The man himself!
