BE YOUR OWN MUSE

Make sure you visualize what you really want, not what someone else wants for you.

Heads or Tails?

This was for my Fashion, Art, & Media Course this Spring. We had to create a piece using sustainability items, or items that are not necessarily made of material. I decided to revamp an accessory of mine, which is a black patent leather clutch. I glued coins on to both sides and the top of the clutch.

This was an assignment for my Fashion, Art, & Media class. I conducted a photo-shoot in front of Health Sciences Library on Howard’s campus on a Sunday afternoon after attending church.

I decided to use PicStitch to do a trilogy type photo. This was in front of my house. I used a high contrast on the photo to make the lighting bright to enhance the colors.

This was for a project assigned in the course “African American Dress”. We had to make a doll.

Photo Shoot.

This is an assignment that I was given for my Fashion, Art & Media Course (Spring 2013). I decided to get some photos of my good friend for her birthday. In choosing effects for the photos, I used a program on my Mac called “FX Studio”. This program has many different kinds of filters. I selected some of the filters to give an interesting effect to the photos I took.

Flower Dress.

For the course “Fashion, Art, & Media” students got together and worked on this dress. The artificial flowers were glued onto material with a glue gun. They chose the silhouette of the dress and specifically how the flowers would be placed. It is now posted in the window of “Lee’s Flower Shop” on U St. NW in D.C.
