I haven’t even been part of the fashion world for a year, but if there is one thing I have noticed, it is that with every new season comes new trends and innovative looks. Behind every design, there is some type of theme the designer incorporates. I have noticed that a lot of designs have been based off of something in nature, but why not science?
Yuly Fuentes-Medel contacted me about Descience asking me if I wanted to become involved. Of course as a model and Journalism major, I couldn’t turn it down. I have worked with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, the head designers for Chanel, Fendi, and Karl Lagerfeld and Cara Delevingne, one of the top supermodels in the world. They, like everybody else in fashion, know that creativity and innovation are key to any fashion brand or design, and I am sure they would love what Descience is doing.
Last Friday on the 25th of February, Yuly and everybody involved in Descience held an event at the MIT Museum to showcase what the designers and the scientists had come up with. From team names, to team designs, to the explanations behind the designs, everything was fascinating. There were complimentary food and beverages and even microscopes that fans and participants could look through. The atmosphere was electric with curiosity and intrigue. If the final products look anything like the sketches, then Descience is going to take off.
I’m really excited for Descience to come out with some men’s designs that I can wear!
