MESHTALLIC

As our final project last semester, we had to illustrate an outfit collection and prepare a presentation for it. But like any other design process, before starting to sketch the pieces, a moodboard should be done first and this was what I did. What follows is the brand profile I created as well as the collection.

Asymmetry is an International fashion label founded by the Filipino fashion designer, Tiffany Anne Firmeza, in 2013. The design aesthetics and timeless elegance has made it an unprecedented brand. Ready-to-wear and custom-made fashion accessories, casual wears, and formal apparel complete the scope and guarantee high quality production. With the use of luxurious fabrics and sophisticated details, items conforming to certain occasions ensure evolution of style in a way that the clients would look and feel great.

The rapid expansion of Asymmetry in over 10 countries with 150 directly managed stores has enthused people to become more flexible and stylish. Moreover, a quarterly fashion show that features the brand’s latest designs is held in the presence of renowned individuals in the industry. Collaborations with top models Candice Swanepoel, Bette Franke, and Toni Garrn present the essence of Assymetry which prevails to influence the world in terms of fashion.

On March 2014, Asymmetry will be launching “Meshtallic”, a fashion show which will showcase outfits with mesh and metallic elements. Still, the designs have the signature unbalanced cuts that will forever remain in the aesthetic of the brand.

We had to do 8 sketches of models with garments and my basis for choosing what to draw were the fabric or material, the cut, and the style. I wanted them to be of different kinds so I could dynamically practice doing fashion illustrations.

Last semester, we did illustrations of these models during our Midterm exams then we were made to draw them again after corrections were given and taught by our teacher how to shade.

So these are the output, the redrawn and shaded version.  I finally had been able to start using the blending stump which gives more volume and texture to my works.

We also had to personally choose another two pieces to illustrate. This could lead us to mastery of the shading technique before proceeding to garment sketches.
