Neoprene geometric jacket / Ninthsheep
crop pants / thrifted
shoes / Dr. Martens
Cut-outs and deconstruction are interesting when mixed with geometric shapes and angles. This is the second neoprene jacket I made for Ninthsheep and I'm so happy with it. Initially, I was thinking of making a simple plush bomber jacket but when you Google " neoprene bomber jacket" , you'll find a lot out there. So to offer something new , I made this asymmetric cut-out jacket. The pattern was quite challenging but I managed to execute the result I want. I'm planning to make a different sleeve with a white fabric next time. We will see.
Oh I'm spending too much money on fabrics these days. I can't help it. Well it's for educational purpose so I think it's on the reasonable side still. On the same note, here's Rick with a message:
"First, learn how to make clothes, learn how to make clothes, learn how to make clothes. Don’t do sketches and collages, because that’s bullshit. I mean anybody can do that. You have to learn how to make clothes. And the other thing is, you have to shut up and work and work and work all the time, and produce and produce and produce. And the more you produce, your character or your talent will emerge. For better or for worse, your identity, your personality, your vision, whatever. As long as you work and work and work and make enough things to choose from, you’ll be able to edit something that becomes who you are. It’s so simple. You don’t have to go to parties and you don’t have to meet the right people, you just have to work and work and work and get your stuff out there. You have to go out there and show it to people. You can’t expect for people to come knocking at your door, you have to show it. Kissing somebodies ass isn’t going to really help that much. Your main thing is just to get your work out there..."
