I traveled to Milan, Italy in Summer 2008 to take a two week short course in Fashion Design at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti. We had one project with an inspiration from an artist of our choice. I looked at the work of Sigmar Polke and various pop art techniques such as benday dots, screen printing, as well as spray painting, using other medium as a canvas (or in this case-fabric). We also had to construct half a garment and design a t-shirt with non-traditional materials.
