Here I have one of my favorite jackets that
needs, as you can see, more development, but again, that can be up to me later or you to
use as a jump-off point. I call it my “Mod Coat” because it kind of does look a little
bit 60’ish, Austin Powers, to me, in my mind. And again, I’m the designer, so I have a completed
vision and I have an almost developed vision and somebody like you looking at it might
think, “Where is she getting the title of Mod Coat”? But that’s what makes this whole
thing so amazing, is that I got it because it came from my brain and I am going to convey
it to you where you can understand it, and in order to do that, I have to draw it. I
have to pretend like I cannot speak and I have to let my hands and the paper and my
pen speak for me and I have to make sure that they say everything that I would want to say
if I were talking to you. So, when I develop it further, it will bring to mind “Mod Coat”.
Until then it could be a dress, it could be a jacket, it could be anything. My whole point
in it was the center placket, the lines, the geometry of it, basically, the modernism,
lines, lines, center, and then big, big, over-sized collar. There you go!
