My name is Jackie Estrada and I am 17 years old. I am thinking about becoming a fashion designer because it relates to my interests in art and fashion. I also like designing things according to my style and being the only one to own it. My goals for being successful in this career include: improving my drawing skills, educating myself on sewing and different fabrics, and earning a bachelors degree in fashion design. For my senior project, I chose to design and make a dress.
My research paper was on the role fashion plays in society. I learned that fashion is more than just dressing up. It is a form of art and a way in which people can express themselves. It also represents the current culture in different areas around the world. We can look back hundreds of years and see the evolution of fashion. It gives you an idea of what that time period was like.
The dress I made is related to my research paper because it is something I designed that expresses me. My goal was to create something that I wanted to wear. I got to make it just how I wanted it. I had a bit of difficulty on getting started because I had no idea how I wanted it to look. I sketched some ideas but I found it easier to go into a fabric store and shop blindly. Once I saw what I could work with, I knew what I wanted to make.
After finishing this product, I got an idea of what being a fashion designer is like. I really enjoyed the process. It was fun and the results were motivating. It was also a unique way to express my creativity. I am excited to try different things with my work and just be creative with it. This dress was just a simple experiment to see what I was capable of. Life is about creating, and one way I would like to contribute is by designing clothes. I believe I can achieve highly in this career if I stay focused and continue putting in effort.
I think the senior project is a good way for students to figure out what they want to do with their life. Maybe they were not so sure, but their senior project gave them a chance to try something out. It was a good experience and it gave me a positive feeling in pursuing a career in fashion. The senior project was very beneficial to my future, and I thank you for your time in listening to my presentation.
