I wanted to create a collection that took inspiration from city fashion with road trip influences. The idea for this collection came to me when I was planning a road trip to British Columbia where I was excited to relax and be comfortable, but still look put together and stylish.
I chose to go with black and white, shades of grey, and pastels for my colour palette. The plaid I decided to put my main focus on was the most basic plaid pattern as not to detract from clothing style.

MY goal with this project was to create a clear and concise magazine that had continuity within. The layout took inspiration from simplistic online blogs. All the picture borders are the same pink. The text box colours are pulled from images within the corresponding pieces. I ended up not only enjoying the designing process but the writing portion as well.
The inspiration for this photoshoot came along the same lines to me as my clothing collection did. I was in the midst of planning a camping trip but holding on to an admiration for classy and sophisticated clothing. I could not think of a better idea than to mix the two scenarios together. I dressed my model up in three classy and sophisticated outfits and we went to a forest to make these powerful shots happen.
I wanted to create contrast with a fitted, darker top and loose, lighter bottoms. I paired this outfit with a strappy heel as not to take attention away from the ensemble.
This outfit had the same idea to create contrast. Fitted, lighter top and loose, darker pants. I also used the same heels to keep the main focus on the outfit.
The third outfit I chose was a turtleneck fitted green dress. This dress really brings forward the chic and classy vision I had for the clothing and paired well with the environment we were shooting in.
