Hi, my name is Kaitlin Ertel and I’m from Cincinnati, Ohio, majoring in Fashion Design here in DAAP. I started this course with a background in fashion design since that is my main focus in school. My love for the production aspects, such as drawing, sewing, and the engineering of clothing really sparked my interest in Bonnie because she went outside the normal realm of design by using atypical, yet functional features which we still benefit from today. I have loved learning about Cashin’s unique use of patterning and different detailing techniques. My experience in this class has been very rewarding and enjoyable.
