Seneca College Fashion Collection

One of the best things about studying fashion design at college, was that in our third and final year we were tasked with creating a mini-collection for a year-end fashion show.

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.
