portfolio,book binding

For my portfolio class we were given a budget and told to go buy a nice portfolio to use during our class presentations, and keep for job interviews. I went to the store (Flax in SF is AMAZING, but $$!) and saw that they only had one style of portfolio that would work for our type of projects. It came in bamboo ($130) brown wood ($130) metal ($100) and white and black plastic ($80). Honestly I was kinda Meh about them. They were pretty, but really $$. Also, I had a feeling that everyone one in my class would buy one...and that kinda defeats the point of having an eye-catching and interesting portfolio.

Long story short, I decided to make one. I looked on ebay and eventually found a suitable book that had a vertical layout and was 13x19". My projects are tabloid size 11x17" so that gave me a nice border. Later on my teacher assigned we have a smaller companion book (8.5x11 printouts) of our fabric, merchandising plans, support and research materials. The two books combined cost me about $60, $50 of which was my budget.

Accepted Advanced Study In Theater Costume Design, Awarded Alex Roldan Scholarship for excellence. They want me to go down to the LA campus to be awarded on stage during the Debut Fashion show, and again during the educators night (for the people who gave me the scholarship) I really hope I can go!!!! What am I going to wear!?

I'm not really sure how much the scholarship is, they offer two (Alex Roldan and one from the Costumers Guild) I know one is close to $10,000 so I REALLY REALLY hope it's that one!!!

I'm all warm and fuzzy on the inside :)

This last quarter I had a class called collection development. It is a pattern drafting class where you work with a partner to design a coordinating group of 2 jackets, 2 shirts, 2 pants and 2 skirts (one each per team member). Me and My partner's theme was "Then and Now- The Romantic's" Above is our mood and fabric board (Minus the labels I put on after I took the photo).

We split it up that I made more masculine inspired pieces (Pictures under the cut) and my partner made the more Feminine ones (No photos). All the garments we made are in muslin (Class requirement) so it takes a little imagination to "see" how the finished piece should look.

Next quarter I am going to be in a class Called Industry Special projects, which is arranged for students to compete in Discarded to Divine : http://www.discardedtodivine.org/

Originally I had missed the deadline for applying and submitting references (It was the week of the Hamburglar) But then later on they called me and asked me to come in. I guess very few students had applied, and they were getting a little despite to get a regular class size. Anyway I went in, showed the head of the department My re-designed wool jacket and a design project. She said she would get the references for me, and I just needed to turn in the essay.

That night (Before I had finished the essay) I got an e-mail saying I was accepted into the class. Initially this made me a little sad; being accepted just because they were despite? I decided it did not matter, however, because I would just be extra awesome when class time came.

A few days later (When I stopped in to drop off the essay) I overheard a student saying he had not heard whether or not he had been accepted yet...apparently I was one of the few who heard right away. This made me feel all shiny.

This is going to be an adventure. I have no idea what I am making until we get our supplies from D&D. I also have no idea what the class is going to be like besides that it is 6 hours (Vs. the regular 3) I am excited, but I am also slightly terrified.
