Artful Living

project pve design way

The other day while organizing my portfolios, I came across one of my projects from college.

Often, I really cannot stand to look at my work until years later and then it all comes rushing back to me.  These fashion illustrations were part of a project that would address the needs of a working woman ( Yes it was during the 80’s- note those shoulder pads!) and I have always loved big city black and white style.  As a child, I would visit fabric stores and dream of fabrics, notions, and sewing machines. (I will save this for another post dedicated to fabrics)  Guess I would have been a perfect candidate for project runway, but then again, maybe not.  Could I handle the pressure and all that scrutiny?  Knowing what I know now, I think I would love it.
This project was a really satisfying one for me as I was about to move to the big bad apple and these dresses, coat dresses, I might add really came in handy for my interviews.  My favorite memory was meeting my in-laws sporting the black and white glen plaid and I was even brave enough to wear red stockings.   I have always admired classics with a twist.  I need to feel part of the class, but a little artsy side needs that spark to really complete me.  I call it the pve design way.  Do you have a special way that completes your project to make it your very own?
