When I updated my bio as “Fashion Engineer” on my twitter (@), people went bonkers! They started asking “what is fashion to do with Engineering”?
I am an Engineer. I am into Fashion. simple!!
Engineering is about making things better, about automation, about making existing processes better. I web-engineered this fashion site, mechanical engineered the machinery that are used to bring some of the awesome fashions available at Deysi’s fashion store. ( http://deysicollections.com/ )
I want to thank two inspiring people- Nina & Becky
I know Nina(@) from the day I saw “This world is mine” some 5-6 years ago. Her work at blog.ninapaley.com/ continues to inspire me. Then she shifted her base to textile based animation. Even before Nina started the professional “Palegray labs” ( palegraylabs.com/ ) I was stalking her extensive research on the quilt fashion & embroidery. Nina is practically, I quote “the mother of embroidermation”.
Then there was Becky!! (@ ) who’s research excited & inspired me more. Becky is an awe-inspiring genius, a guru of wearable electronics. ( http://beckystern.com/ ) I feel as if Tesla himself is talking when Becky explains her inventions in her tutorials. These people introduced me to a whole new world of opportunities of learning.
Nina teaches about quilt, embroidery, patterns. Becky teaches A to Z of wearable electronics. You can get enough videos and content from the above links of these respective geniuses. So, I am not adding any 🙂
