The World that Lines Before Us

Two interpretations of line
1.Line-form with greater length than width. Length is thought to be more important.
2.Line-visual movement ans energy across a surface.
There two types of line
*Actual lines- lines that exist in space.(generally in apparel)
*Implied lines- lines that we actually "see".
There are also different qualities in lines such as:
*Width(thick or thin)
*Weight(apparent heaviness)
*Uniformity(similarity in width, weight and length)
~See pgs. 134-136 for more details~

Line In Architecture

"People come here with the idea that they're going to a museum with works of art on the inside, but they're really visiting a work of art with a museum inside."
In this photo to the right is the Getty museum in Los Angeles, California. The famous architect awarded for this masterpiece is Richard Meier. The Getty museum is a work of art inspired by the twentieth-century modernism. The complex is based on a 30-inch square grid that runs from one building to the next without deviation. There are many elements used in this architecture but the most apparent is the implied lines. http://gocalifornia.about.com/cs/losangeles/a/gettyarchit.htm

Lines in Photography

This image consists of diagonal lines to draw attention to the photography.The vanishing point tends to create a point of interest to go beyond what the eye can see. Diagonal lines also are used to represent action or movement to lure the audience in with an real life experience.http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_BgZxw0D42kM/SPZzjo3gG9I/AAAAAAAAACc/9r2sjwgLb58/s320/42-16698231.jpg

Lines in Painting

In the painting shown are vertical and horizontal lines. This is a very peacful and calming painting by the cool colors of blue and greens. The vertical and horizontal lines are created to give us an illusion of sprouts weaving. It leads the eye to wonder and search within the painting to discover the new coming of the fresh grown sprouts, which will develop and grow.http://www.google.com/

Lines in Body Art

This is a form of body tatooing through sun tanning. Worn is a stenciled robe and the person must sit under the UV and voila to create the lines of body tattooing. The lines were formed through the exposure of sun to the uncovered areas of the body. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-09/suntan-tattoo.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.neatorama.com/2007/10/04/sun-tattoo/&usg=__uAivkV2TrGOAeBwEJGlzqt7P6vo=&h=287&w=468&sz=66&hl=en&start=20&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=SjpqeAy_oiCP3M:&tbnh=78&tbnw=128&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dlines%2Bin%2Btattooing%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1R2ADRA_enUS343%26tbs%3Disch:1

Guest Lecturer

In my opinion she was the best guest lecturer we had in our class. She kept the class interested and got us involved as a whole. Our last lecturer was quite different because she basically just talked about her life after she said "enough about me". Our guest got through her whole presentation with time to spare for questions. I feel the class could relate to her because she was not far from our ages and she was truthful about her situations and gave us graeat information.

She included her life into her presentation and showed us her items that she made herself. She also told us that she was a beginner in the sewing but she still let the class in on her mistakes. This shows us that you can still go far in life with few mistakes, mistakes just make better. I like the fact that in away she felt what the audience thought about the knitting. Usually it is for old people is what some think but she also showed how some fabrics are decorative and colorful. Bright colors and pretty patterns appeal to a younger audience.

What inspires me to create

This dress was inspired by a sexy and sensual look. The black on the dress is leather, which gives more creativeness to the piece. The fine lines you see at the bottom are the lace trim at the edges of the dress. On the left is the back of the of the dress and to the right is the front view.

I acually created this dress today. This is stretch out of my comfort zone because I usually stay on the simple, modern side of the meter. I see this as a classic old-fashioned type piece that could be accessorized with a simple adding of black leather gloves. This would give more focus to the background behind the design.

If my piece was to walk down the runway I would create a perfect feel to the intensity of the dress. I would have pearls around the necks of the necks of the models. With the touch of dark red lipstick to give off a more past experience. The hair off my models would be deep fingerwaves.

Ethnical Fashion

Ethnical Fashion surrounds the world today due to the many different varieties of cultural backgounds, the environment surrounding them. When times in the world went through drastic changes clothing style began to evolve. The cultural changes that took effect were the more active livestyles of the men and women.

With every cultural background comes a different fashion trend or style. Religion may aslo be included in the creation of ethnical clothing. Even though some may have different beliefs clothing is still created for comfort depending on the climate. The main reason there are changes in our society today, is because designers expand there searches to different countries to see what fits the surroundings in the environment.

Diversity in the world creates many different aspects of clothing. For example, If a designer came from a African background and lived in Africa they would observe their country and bring back these designs that will be revealed to the world.

7 days of N.Y fashion

DKNY fashion week in above box!!!

New York fashion week is a time to illustrate and prove to the world what the fashion indusrty has to offer. There are hundreds of designers who come out and present their collections of clothes to the world. Each individual has a variety of styles to expose. The designers that influenced me in the 2009 Fashion Week collection are Rock & Republic, and DKNY.

Rock & Republic collection is a simple style but is set off by its darkness. As me being a simple type of person this collection really catches my eye. The clothing look is very conservative but with a sheek look that appeals to a younger audience. Some may think that with such a straightforward clothing line it wouldn appear to be plain but it goes into greater detail. The clothing is form fitting with an edgey knee high appearence.

Another line that was in the 2009 collection was DKNY, "Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul," says Donna Karan. Mrs. Karan's collection represents beauty, which is shown through her sensual and visual beliefs. Her clothing style cool, calm, and relaxed. This is also on the more edgy style than those of the old-fashioned content. The line is something that can be worn on a day to day basis. It accentuates the body in a way that it doesnt have to be form fitting jus to be sexy. The clothing gives you the experience of freedom in movement.

My inspirational designer

My inspiration in the fashion industry is the director and president of Baby Phat fashions Kimora Lee Simmons. She is a strong-minded women that strives hard for success. She raises her two kids Ming Lee and Aoki Lee and still keeps up with her fashion career. Once a model for Chanel of Paris, She now solely focuses on the well being of her kids and Baby Phat Fashions. She started her career at a young age of fourteen and now has her own show, has modeled, hosted a television show, and acted. She represents a hard working women that knows how to manage her business as well as her family. The designs Kimora Simmons presents are those of confident women who want to show their figures. She has came so far in life, she was given the opportunity to do something big and has expanded that into something huge. When I become a fashion designer I want to have a career close to that of Kimora Simmons. I would love to have a family and also pursue my dreams in life.http://http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=sap5sgAUEQY
