I still remember how nervous I was when I first met VCC fashion coordinator, Judy Ho during an interview two years ago. back then I had no sewing background. I did not even know what an industrial sewing machine looked like. All I had was couples portrait drawings and a passion for fashion. But today I have created my own collection!!! I’ve learned so much in these two years; and the most valuable lesson is: Never ever give up your dream.
Here are the five looks I made for my grad show:
Fabric: Wool melton, vinyl, denim, knit
All pieces designed and sewn by Mi Huynh
