I am a finalist in the C&C California x College Fashionista T-Shirt Design Contest! My design, along with two others, was chosen by a panel of judges. It is now up to the people of Facebook to comment on which design they like the best. The design with the most comments will be sold on C&C California's website as well as Zappos.com. Voting is open until December 16, 2011. Click the photo below to vote for my design! Every comment counts!

 
 
This semester, I am taking a class called "Eco-Centric," where the focus is on making eco-conscious clothing. The goal is to use low impact and recycled fabrics and trims, while elevating eco-fashion beyond the earthy style that it is often associated with. Our theme is "Shipwrecked," and because of this theme, I wanted to design some pieces that had some sort of transformative quality to them. I figured, it I were ever to be shipwrecked off the coast of an island, I would want to have options! Of the 30 pieces we were asked to design, my convertible dress was chosen as one of my final looks. The dress is fully reversible and can be worn as a maxi or knee length on both sides, giving a total of 4 looks!

My (possible) second look, the drop crotch pant and sweater are not so much transformative as much as they are just something I wanted to do. I have been wanting to knit something for a while, and this class gave me that opportunity.
