Dimensional Designing

We often hear these days 3D, 4D, HD, 7D, and so on. Well the D- days have come into fashion designing. It’s not enough to just sew,your creativity needs a lot of standing out on this competitive time

So many designers springing up but the unique ones are very few

So if you can find your Unique aspect and Major on it well, you have more than higher chances of not just excelling but excelling with a difference.  

 Effects – a word often used in the movie and media industry. Because the effect of ‘Effects’ can never be underrated. (Sounds double fun – effect of Effects- okay, let’s make it a topic for another day soon). If you want to catch a viewers attention , certain effects come to play and suddenly, all eyes go to the screen no matter the distraction. Have you found yourself in a room where everyone is happily talking and suddenly a sound comes from TV and all eyes move there. That’s called Effect. It is meant to affect you and if it does, that’s mission accomplished. If it doesn’t , something is somewhere missing. 

Same way when you walk into a room, no matter how , you want 1 or 2 or all heads turn to you. Naturally, they turn , but to keep them fixed on you takes some things. You find yourself looking at someone over and over again? The dressing may not be that special , it could only be the way the outfit sits on the body. wpid-img_20150905_182828.jpg

Every designer’s duty is to assist their client command what they want to show at any given occasion. 

It’s not by adding all sorts of accesories to the outfit. The Beauty of simplicity is still the key. Simplicity when well presented has a powerful way of commanding respect and esteem. Big people are not always loud, it shows all over them. If you have to scream to be recognized, then you more work to do on your status. 

Style your clients in a way they can walk head held high. 

Dimensional designing helps create certain effects on your designs. This effects are enough to make eyes fixed on your outfit without too much noise going on. It’s not a ‘bread butter’ job, but it pays off when well done. It comes in all numbers of ‘Ds’ , 7D, 10D etc. this aspect of fashion designing is the new face of creating that optical illusion and making your designs work well with the clients body. The knowledge of your clients body type also has to do with the dimensions you are creating so you won’t create a wrong overall impression. 

That body is the package and if not well studied, the wrapping goes wrong. 

Your fabric choices as well plays a key role…….. 

It’s not enough to just know how to sew or cut, know your onions and master your art.

┬áBecause it’s 2016? Let’s Get It Going……

Amazing how time flies and what seems so far away just happens like that at a finger snap and you wonder how did it happen so fast. Few weeks or days ago, we were all anticipating, and yes here we are. Thankful and hopeful…….  Now wait, don’t start hoping on 2016, this year poses seriousness, it’s like it’s ready for those who are ready for it. 

My religious self went checking out what some religious leaders and heads said about 2016 and yes a very high percentage points to the same thing. It’s going to be great for those who take it serious. Well , putting spirituality aside, greatness happens to those who makes their opportunities meet preparations.  Don’t apportion blames on the economy or government so soon, what exactly are you doing to make it a better year for you in all ways. 

If you made the same moves, you’ll definitely have the same results. Make changes even if small.  

 The Jobs and employment reports are not looking that good, many companies are laying off and will still lay off, salary slashes, insecurities and uncertainties in offices to make them meet with the economic demands and balances. It’s not strange because it happens all the time, it’s only the rate and the number of people affected that seems alarming. I remember when growing up, my mum would say “apart from your certificate, have somethings you can do with your own hands “. That statement has been a blessing to me and many other lives I’ve been able to touch till date. 

Sometimes when you refuse to take a step, you’re not only affecting yourself but equally all the strings of life attached to that decision. No man is a single tree, we all come with branches , leaves, fruits and more, all depending on the life supplied from the roots. Your getting rooted has a ripple effect on many others.  

 If the government can be screaming that people should get involved in small scale businesses etc then what more do you need to hear? 

Whether you are working or not, find time to discover some side passion and develop it as a backup. It’s the best umbrella for rainy days. Let those around you know the importance of having a backup plan before they become your liabilities soon. In this age and time, housewife doesn’t sound so classy, be a stay-home mum with a skill in the apron. Life happens, be well prepared.  

 Before you graduate, look at the job sector and the troubled waters it is brewing lately, borrow yourself some advices and make plans to secure tomorrow. While waiting on the interview, add value to yourself. 

Just think about whatever makes you pop a smile or arouses your interest, your passion lies there and working where your passion lies brings easy learning and better results. Look around and get a place to work it out. Be sure it’s a place that will support your passion. If you are where you don’t like, the passion thins out and the interest and zeal may fizzle out too. Don’t make that mistake.  

 Back to my own passion- sewing, fashion, crafts and souvenirs and more. Nothing fulfills me more than working on these. That’s why the team and I have been helping many others work this dream out. Starting as DGV Fashion Academy. Now to a government certified technical college- IBADANCITY FASHION COLLEGE.
