I created a 1 of 1 jean jacket piece inspired by my artist who uses fabrics in her art. It was originally a black denim jacket with no coloring. Now it has a distressed collar and a flower design going over the arm and back of the jacket. I want the work to communicate several things like where you can find creativity. I used a pair of red shorts to create flowers on the jacket and I never thought I would be able to do that but my artist was able to help me see deeper than what was in front of me. I used a sewing machine for most of the project and scissors to cut up the materials. All of the jacket was done pretty much by hand. Using certain techniques is important because you want to be able to do your best on the product and clothes cost money. I learned that finding a piece of work that looks kind of similar to what your final product should look like helps guide you through the creating process.
I’m really proud of myself being able to create a denim jacket with my own taste on it for the first time. I think I also found a new passion through this project so I’m really happy I did this and chose the artist I did. Now if there was one thing I would change it would be the amount of gold I put on the jacket I feel like I could of done more to make the jacket even more unique.
Throughout this project I have learned how to use my creative eye to create a one of one piece that I can wear. I’ve improved my sewing skills and learned some techniques for sewing on the way.
I chose the shoe as my project because one of my all my favorite things to do is collect shoes. I love jordans nikes and adidas the most. This is one of the first basketball shoes i’ve ever had and I never scuffed them because I was scared to.
I chose wire set up I did because in the end it would have the best look on the shoe and it would still be bright. I chose 5 bulbs on each lace side then a wire to connect both ends so they would be bright. I twisted all the wires to let the current flow.
