Students from Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute recently participated in a design competition, for which they were asked to create a garment or sculpture – using only sheets of plain white paper. The students’ work was then displayed in the showroom of mannequin and furniture dealer, Ralph Pucci – and judged by the likes of Vicente Wolf, Jens Risom, Anna Sui, and Linda Fargo.

This relates to my career because fashion sketchbooks help develop patterns, textures, and creativity.
