The personal project I am presenting is upon the fashion and clothing industry of the world. My project is based upon extensive research from various online websites about how designers came about to becoming famously known, the process of manufacturing clothing, and the culture behind what is New York City streetwear. This is a topic I understand the most. My whole life is based upon the fashion industry, and to do my personal project on it just seemed right. The goal for my project was to actually make my ideas come to life. I did in fact already have some background knowledge upon the fashion industry where I helped friends of mine come up with either logos or graphic prints on clothing and make a profit out of it.

I started of by understanding what the fashion industry and culture is like and ended of by creating my very own shirt, which I am happy to say I am very proud of. The shirt resembles my personality which also refers back to my global context which is personal and cultural expression. The tshirt that I designed is my personal expression which is a great way to conclude my personal project. I feel like my criteria was we managed and adequate.

Vintage rock shirts and distressing is really a essential in one 's closet and this clothing piece that ive designed would fit perfectly. Completing my personal project was a great learning experience. I understood how complicated the fashion industry is and what are some of the positives and negatives of the culture.
