Plaids! Red Plaids by iAcademy design and technology students

Where: N.E.W Fashion and Beauty fair @ Rockwell Tent

Remember guys when I predicted that plaids are going to be a big hit next season?.  Honestly I'm not a big fan of wearing clothes in plaid fabric because of a movie I watched when I was 9 years old (that was the age when I was easily influenced a lot by the movies and TV shows I watched  way back ), the actress in that movie said "I hate wearing this kind of fabric (plaids) because I don't want to look like a walking table" and from that I was easily influenced by her and that line made a huge impact in my fashion choices and I swore to myself that I'll never wear plaids..ever!!.

Thank God Vivienne Westwood, Thom Browne and Phillip Lim changed that mentality of mine, these designers proved to me that plaids are cool and can be chic too!.  From their cutting edge designs and impeccable structures which makes the fabric plaid very sophisticated and you will not think or relate it with your old table mat.  As year's goes by many and many designers created cool and stunning designs with plaids just like what I-Academy design and technology students did on their collection.

Paired with faux leather fabric, the students presented a cohesive, edgy and cutting edge collection...kinda' reminded me of the 70's punk revolution because of the combination of leather and plaid. I also loved the seductively sexy cuts and drapes they did, personally I don't think the drapes looked baggy. I'm pretty impressed with the students of iAcademy and I'm very sure they'll improve for the better after years of studying fashion design in iAcademy.

These are things I applaud iAcademy for, because they know how to take care of their students especially in their student's career before and after they graduate. Exposing them early in the industry while studying sure helped their students a lot.  iAcademy will give you the right tools and training, but will let you discover what you want to pursue in the future.
