Program: Semester Course
Period: Sep. 2, 2019 - Dec. 13, 2019
My Name is Nina Mostert and I am from South Africa. Currently, I am taking a gap year to learn what the world has to teach me, to find my style and to make some dreams come true!
I divided my year into 2 halves. In the first semester of the year, I lived in NYC where I was studying Film and Acting whilst I was doing an internship at a jewelry artist. I have a great love for fashion and that is why I chose to spend the second semester at Accademia Riaci. A Great school that combines fashion with the art world in such an amazing way.
I love to visit museums and see art in everything. Furthermore, I love yoga, good food, and my friends.
Today I started with my First Collection! I am super excited and happy to start with something new. It is my first collection ever. I am starting to collect images for the mood board. Next week I will edit all the pictures together in Photoshop.
Me and Lukas went for a walk through Oltrano and ended up doing a 3 hour hike! It was so relaxing and so beautiful! I love being in nature and mis going trips to the bush in South Africa.
Today I did a few rough sketches to inspire my collection and to get a feel of what I like and want to design. I found more ideas and inspirations in the fashion books that we have at the school.
In the break between my two classes I got a quick snack from the supermarket around the corner.
In my second lesson, Colour theory, we learned about the different types of colourant. 120 E is the symbol for a red colour that is retrieved from dead bugs. It is so interesting.
Today I worked on the price range for my collection. The price range is determined by the ideal client. I also established key words for my collection. This will help me and my teachers understand what I have in mind for my collection ahead.
After school I went to my favourite sandwich shop for a sandwich.
Today Me, Maria Clara and Victor went to a buckle and bag hardware store. We bought some buckles for the belts and bags that we want to make.
After our trip we went to the art visit at 5pm. We went to a secret church/office it was a unique experience.
