FIRST GARMENT: GIVENCHY INSPIRED SWEATER

jumper: made by me, t-shirt: Calvin Klein, jeans: vintage

Our class finished certificate two in fashion design and technology early, so our lecturer suggested that we make something we have always wanted to make and he would help us make it. Immediately my brain started spinning with a million different things I had seen from the runway from Balenciaga, Givenchy to Rick Owens. Immediately I remembered seeing this cropped sweater from the mens Givenchy show in fall and spring, then I thought that it would be a perfect layering piece for winter. Immediately I looked for black fabric that would be warm enough to wear for winter because it wouldn't be a full jumper so fabric choice was essential for the practicality of this garment. A week and a half later this was the end result. At the moment it is still too warm to wear but when winter comes around, this will definitely be my winter staple piece for the season.
