I’ve already said that I want to be Christian Joy, but I really just want her to make everything I wear. Even though they are meant as costumes, I think skeleton suits and lightning print robes should be worn anytime. Christian’s been making these outfits for a while, but I’m most interested in her recent pieces which are made out of fabric that she’s screen printed herself. I’ve only really learned screen printing as a means of making editions of prints rather than surface design for fabric, but I’m inspired by her prints. Some of the pieces that I want to make for my senior show involve printing on fabric so recently I’ve been looking really closely at some of my favorite Christian Joy designs.
