Autie's women's knitwear collection called Geometric Nightmare to be debuted at San Francisco fashion show by fashion design students.

About this project

In the Spring three other innovative designers and myself are throwing our own fashion show in San Francisco called Constituent Parts. In order to make this effort valiant, I need to create my collection. As some of you may know, I have been working hard and am a few months away from graduating with my Bachelor's in Fashion Design and am excited to debut this as one of my first independent collections.

The collection is called Geometric Nightmare. It will be an autumn/winter 2011 women's wear line completely hand knitted by myself. It was inspired in part by Ronan and Erwan Bourellec's geometric "Clouds" creation. Intriguing to me was how an object can become three dimensional based on the ends that are attached to other ends. This mixed with the idea that knits are not geometric by nature brought me to this dark place of what it would be like to be overrun by geometry or to have total mathematical chaos in knits. But not just any knits; the best part about this collection is my use of extracted neoprene/rubber tubing that will be forming the bulk of the garments. This is what adds up in price so greatly, while making the collection grand and solely inventive in itself.

More pictures and information at my blog at www.thesemantics.blogspot.com (soon there will be some glimpses of the illustrations). For everything else, there is my website at www.autieautie.com

Thank you for your time, and support, in any way that I get it.

All donations past the goal are still encouraged and will be used to further the Geometric Nightmare's greatness!
