I’m breaking from regularly scheduled programming to share this with you all. One of my very best friends Jason teaches a few 5th graders. He, being the pal that he is, shares my blog with them which I find both honoring and hysterical. One of his students drew these and asked that he show them to me.
Let’s give the student her due. Clearly, they have a knack for drawing tech flats—a highly sought after skill.
#1. Lanvin Esque, let’s take a look here—1 shouldered, possibly draped, very remiscent of Alber’s jewel tone looks.
#2. Simple, definitely an LBD vibe going on. The shape is very Valentino (the new Valentino that is) or Prada when she’s feeling minimal.
#3. This ensemble is definitely a doozie, more 90’s throwback than any of the others. I could see some Jil Sander or maybe even Miu Miu (Spring 2011) in the skirt and as far as the top goes…I’m not quite sure but it has kind of a Betsey Johnson vibe happening.
#4. This looks like it’s got several layers fabric happening, possibly different materials…has potential for a sort of Meadham Kirchoff vibe, no?
#5. Some 80’s throwback here, possibly a nod to Marc by Marc or if in polka dots Marc Jacobs collection. Maybe even a little Mary Katrantzou in that structured sleeve.
#6. Wrap dress? The fifth grader knows their Diane Von Furstenberg
#7. With that neckline and what looks like some body cutouts I’m thinking Versace, Christopher Kane (Spring 2011) or maybe even some Balmain action.
#8. Colorblocking galore on this piece, very Prabal Gurung/Thakoon.
My grade for this assignment? A+.
Textbook has lead to some great things—fashion shows, a couple random projects and a lot of new people but I gotta say…this is the best so far.
