Finally! after months of editing & filming I am able to share with you a huge project I’ve been working on! During April of last year I finish my Fashion Design Diploma! After completing it, I had an idea of making a fashion film. I really enjoyed making it & it’s not the last, I really want to explore more with fashion films. I have also decided that I wanted to share with you the process I went through!
xx love, Kassandra
Here are some swatches & sketches from my design process, many of my ideas changed and developed over time.
Alterations during fittings were defiantly fun, it was the moment when I saw my ideas from the paper come to life.
My favourite part! photo-shoot time! We had to prepare at-least two of our garments from our collection. All accessory, hair/make-up ideas had to be planned out. I finished my first two garments but sadly one of my models could not make it. We also got to work with a Vancouver fashion photographer: Peter Jensen, it was fun & I learned some good tips.
The hair & make-up was inspired by my russian culture & the essence of a “russian princess”

Presentation day! Oh My! through our whole semester we worked up to this moment, it was a week away from the fashion show, and I still had to finalize my fabric color choices so I could continue painting my third dress. We designed hangtags, bags, portfolio & brought all accessories. My teachers brought in two people from Vancouver to watch our presentations. for our portfolio we had to design a complete collection of around twenty garments, with fabric swatches, illustrations, inspiration, technical flats, line sheets & business cards.
I am so thankful to my friend Bitty from BITS, for letting me borrow her beautiful russian nesting dolls

The Fashion Show was truly another one of my favorite parts during this journey. I loved seeing my cloths walk down the runway & seeing some people taking pictures with their phones!! Even through this moment lasted shorter than five minutes, I will remember it forever.
I then invited my models over to do a fashion film! It was so much fun to have total creative control
Thank-you for reading! ♥♥
