mixtape 2011 - my erupting dream

Feeling behind the curtain, I can't breath I can only cry.
Not to mention how breathtaking it was to see models wearing garments made by students.
Amazing talents, creativities, and passion that everyone brought in
making me so jealous of how it will take me some more time to step there. 

a hope that one day I will stand by my models and my collections. 
able to design and sew my imagination making it real and provable. 
Ramya, my model, and me in Mixtape University of Northern Iowa


my model on the Pop! Section 

One of the most 'having fun' model in Vivienne Westwood! 


Pop section with April Czarnetzki wearing Samm Rich's 'Put it on my tab'

my model, Ramya, with my garment: office and the olden

Indie section collections 2011

from my favorite designer: Kathy Wood ('A Thousand Times, Yes!' and 'Optimus Prime') in the classical section . n.b. the optimus prime skirt is two sided switchable!

Knitted by Mackenzie Cowden in Rock n' Roll section, one of my favorites

Patterns printed in our TAPP department, designed by students.



practices and behind the scenes



tribute to the committees and others too! I really enjoyed the show. 

However, thank you my family and my university, and friends
for allowing me to dream and feel 
the two days full of dreamy wishes of me being a designer. 
to take care of the garment, dress, do make up, and walk with my model  on the stage.

Thanks for the little time for me to feel the way I want to feel.

I wish one day it will be more than a garment, but trillions of them.
