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 finished the final sketches for my first collection.
I also ordered a digital drawing pad to help with my photoshop designs and illustrations.
I don’t have class on a Monday so I generally use Mondays to catch up or get ahead with the weeks work.
Today in class My package arrived and I spent most of my lesson trying to download photoshop and programs to use the drawing pad. I also worked on my designs fixing small errors.
Today I continued struggling with photoshop and illustrator but finally succeeded in the end.
I finished more of my final sketches and asked my classmates to give me feedback.
After the feedback I made small changes, I removed two outfits from the collection and planned a new one to replace them.
I love the painting and drawing so much. It is nice to do some art practical between al the fashion.
Today we scanned in my drawings after I finished the final outfit. Both teachers gave me such good advice and help in creating the different looks. I am excited to start work in in photoshop to complete the final look of the collection.
After class I went to go and see the David Statue. It was so beautiful. Wow. I might be in love.
The art visit was at the Santo Spirito church today. Wow it was so beautiful. I loved the garden inside the church. It is so interesting to learn about the art history in such a practical way.
