Sketch Selection: Morgane le Fay

Last Wednesday, a senior fashion design class took a trip to the Morgane le Fay store in Santa Monica to present their sketches to the owner and designer Liliana Casabal. As a mentor, Casabal directed the students to create a collection for a modern woman “inspired by ocean creatures real and mystical.”

In her direction, Casabal recommended several fabrics such as cotton voile, jersey, and chiffon. But when it came to color, the designer was single-minded, specifying that the students use “all shades of blue.” Casabal selected sketches based on these factors as well as the students’ commitment to traditional and nontraditional craftsmanship. During the rest of the semester, students will work in teams to construct the selected designs.
