Back to School & Fall Sewing Plans

I’m back to school today!! I’m back to my PhD classes, but I’m also starting some exciting new classes: I’ve been admitted in a professional patternmaking programme at a specialised school! I’ll have to work hard this year, because I’ll have to make progresses with my PhD and also study the patternmaking course, but I’m super excited!! The course lasts two years and they’ll teach us about digital patternmaking, industrial sewing techniques, design theory, fashion history… and in the end we’ll have to do an internship! Is La Perla accepting interns, by the way? 😛

So, before I’m all snowed under with work, I’m going to share with you my sewing plans for this fall. Will I be able to accomplish them? We’ll see… 😉

Lingerie & Art II: Jean-Honoré Fragonard

Welcome to the world of 18th Century lingerie! Today we’ll see a painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard, a French artist who lived during the 18th Century. He was one of the most important artists of the Rococo period, and in his paintings was able to capture the essence of the fashion and life of his time. Today we’ll see his most famous painting, “L’Escarpolette” (“The Swing”), but I encourage you to take a look at his other paintings!
