Fashion Design Student Turns To Kickstarter To Fund Senior Thesis

So where do students come up with the funds? We recently discovered piumini moncler outlet a Kickstarter campaign created by Ayo Keys, a senior fashion design student at Parsons he has a good point moncler outlet School of moncler saldi Design, who’s looking to raise $10,000 in order to finish her thesis. For aspiring clothing or accessory designers, that outlet moncler final project entails creating a collection to culminate moncler bambino saldi their education that’s where the need for the big bucks comes into play.In fact, Keys says that her campaign ask is moncler outlet serravalle actually a conservative estimate considering how much it actually costs to produce a thesis worthy collection. “They can run anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000,” Keys told The Huffington Post. And because of the exorbitant cost, some students have moncler outlet found success in crowdsourcing funds.The money is used to conduct research, purchase materials, buy supplies, and outsource specialized productions such as knitting and particular finishes. In addition, the approximately 500 Parson fashion design students are asked to create a lookbook for their collections, which means they need money for a full blown photo shoot including a location, professional models, hair and makeup, and a great photographer.And in case you were wondering, these pricey thesis productions are not covered by tuition. Although Keys is lucky enough to be moncler uomo a full scholarship student, she is definitely expected to fund her own final project. The 22 year old is currently an intern at LemLem, the sustainable fashion line founded by supermodelLiya Kebede but it’s unpaid.While moncler saldi uomo Keys is hopeful that the Kickstarter campaign will be funded, she’s focused on creating a thought provoking collection for her thesis that will propel her career beyond the walls of Parsons. She’s calling this collection”Light Year” a six moncler outlet online shop to 10 piece line inspired by light, Afrofuturismand technology.If funding moncler bambino outlet this inventive project isn’t enough of a hurdle, Keys is also an African American woman, who upon moncler donna completion of her degree will piumini moncler scontatissimi enter into a world of fashion that isinfamous for its lack of diversity. At the moment, Tracy Reese moncler saldi outlet and Olivier Rousteing, the creative director at Balmain, are the only black fashion designers with much brand recognition and even then they aren’t household names like Donna Karan or Ralph Lauren. Keys, who hopes to someday piumini moncler saldi launch a small eponymous line, is acutely aware of the challenges she moncler outlet online uomo stands to face.”It’s definitely nerve wracking,” Keys told HuffPost. “But I’m really hopefully that success is possible. I know because I’m brown there are situations where I’m piumini moncler not going to be taken seriously in the industry but I have dealt with those situations in different internships and social settings and at school. And I think for me just being aware of the situations allows me to handle it.”Keys says there are only “a few handfuls of” black design students at Parsons and that they often rely on one another for encouragement and support. But she’ll need more moncler outlet trebaseleghe than that to succeed.There are 22 days left to go on her Kickstarter campaign and so far Keys has raised a little over $4,000. Here’s hoping she piumini moncler uomo hits her goal, not only for the sake of her design degree, but also fashion’s more diverse future.
