Our Designer/Illustrator today is Morgan Childers who will complete her BFA with an emphasis in fashion design and construction this spring at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Morgan Childers, aged 21, was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA.
We are pleased to feature some of Morgan’s latest work, including sketches and images from her Spring 2013 womenswear collection, in addition to illustrations from her senior collection. This collection, entitled Being Bionic, is a five look menswear collection, debuting this May at SAIC’s The Walk 2014 fashion show.
Being Bionic explores the resonances and tensions between sportswear, tailoring, and wearables. When asked to describe the concept behind Being Bionic, Morgan explained that it "critiques the pursuit of human perfection by proposing a new construct for the male ﬁgure: one enhancing this figure without losing sight of its ultimate limitations."
We can't wait to see the final products, and we'll definitely be following up with her throughout this process. To find out more about her work and updates on Being Bionic, check out Morgan on:
