Confessions of a Fashion Designer


You are invited to the next art show at BOOKMACHINE: Books + Zines: Confessions of a Fashion Designer: Artwork by Sergio M. Arroyo. The opening reception is Friday, September 2, 2011 from 7-11pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk. This event is FREE and open to the public.

Artist's statement:

The world of Haute Couture fashion has always interested me since I was very young. I remember seeing the movie Gone With The Wind, at nine years old, and being inspired by the beautiful women's costumes. After watching Gone With The Wind, I drew dresses that resembled what Scarlet O'hara wore. It was not until my senior year in high school that I finally grew enough balls to take a fashion class, where I learned how to sew.

What I like about fashion is that it can display beauty through wearable art. Designing beautiful clothes gives me a calm feeling, like everything is going to be perfect in an imperfect, chaotic world. In times of stress, beauty can be calming. And seeing beauty, whatever you see as beautiful, can give you hope to help create a better future.

--Sergio M. Arroyo

Hope to see you there!
