Meet Zee, 25 year old local artist and aspiring fashion designer!
By Zee Iqbal
Hello beautiful people! I'm Zee and this is my journey toward becoming a fashion designer.
My affinity for fashion began from a young age and truly manifested itself along side my passion for performance art. I was always learning an instrument or performing in a school production.
I took every opportunity possible to be a part of something creative and my discovery of fashion within all of this was a very natural and inevitable one. I found myself conscious of the clothes I chose to wear and I always wanted to dress in a way that made me happy. This interest continued to develop throughout my childhood and into my adulthood, where the power of fashion became very clear to me.
'Let’s just say if a picture tells a thousand words, fashion tells a million.'
The level of work that is required to create a garment is incredible. It’s one that I then underestimated and now value greatly. The course itself has helped me to begin work on my drawing skills and is starting to hone in on the different steps towards creating a collection of clothing. It’s been an eye opening experience so far and I’m really excited to continue to learn and progress through the remainder of the course.
I’ll sign this post off with a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, in which she says: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”… Till next time!
