My collection was inspired by the 1990's cult classic movie, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. For my collection, I imagined what the terminator would have worn if he had of been a woman instead of a man. In order to invoke a robotic feeling that is so seminal to the Terminator movies, I used a lot of shiny and metallic fabrics throughout designs. Reminiscent of the movie poster for Terminator 2, I had all of my models sport sunglasses as they walked the catwalk.
Creating a collection was a lot of work, but it was worth the effort to see designs that I had sketched, pattern-drafted and sewed on the runway. It was definitely one of the proudest moments in my fashion career to date.
