Alice in Wonderland

................ wonderland, I think is the appropriate name for this work, taking into account the sketches and the theme / inspiration and yes, this job has all to do with Alice in wonders, but this was done before the film's release and to have given all the craziness around the famous story of a beautiful young woman named Alice and a white rabbit.
Unlike all the jobs I had the opportunity to see my sketches and coordinated, were based on the original story and so beautiful movie made by Walt Disney that i spent the days watching during my childhood.

Down the Rabbit Hole - The Pool of Tears
Advice of a Caterpillar - Pig and Pepper

As for my work, sketches made for each standard was based on the chapters of the book of Alice in Wonderland. Each of the patterns can be identified as a moment in history and where we can identify the main characters, but also some which most often are forgotten but to anyone who knows history recognizes them easily.

A Mad Tea-Party
    Pig and Pepper - The Queen's Croquet-Ground
Who Stole the Tarts?
This work was carried out for one of my chairs in the 2nd year of graduation, this study has already at least one year, but I thought that was already time to put it here on the blog. This required the implementation of nine standards, from there was selected one of which was later transformed into illustrator, and finally the part that I thought would please me more, the implementation of a coordinated, but I found myself enjoy more doing the patterns that properly the coordinated, perhaps that's why I ended up doing a better job in the standard that in the coordinated.

Navy collection

This was a collection designed for the contest Expressart in which I was selected among the top five and qualified for finals. I was very happy, to have stayed in this small range of selected from many participants, but then I was also sad to know that the five coordinated with that I ran, only three would be made, but no matter may be in the future  I have time and money to do.
The idea centers on the Nautical Fashion, and the base inspiration was the sea and all elements of one form or another may be associated with this (as is the case of Navy uniforms and swimsuits from the 30s), but it was introduced a tie has piece link between the coordinated that is not associated with the base concept. But I also try do not inspire much in the illustrative elements, but in pieces, cuts and applications used in such fashion.
This mini collection is a treat, so cute that turn and soon I will put pictures of the outfits and the event itself.

The three that were chosen to be made

And this are the other two, that unfortunately will continued in the paper

It seems it has been so long, but finally I got the courage and finally I’ll start this blog. And the first post is about my participation in the contest Venus Design which consisted in the creation of a bathing suit for the famous mark Gillette.
After a month of voting, there finally I get to know that I was in the top ten and that on June 18th would present my creation, in Lisbon near the river Tejo for some of the principal names in the fashion world in Portugal.
