Hello, and welcome to my fashion illustration blog!
My name is Chelsea Brest (fancy new last name!), and I am a 22 year old fashion design graduate currently residing in lovely Carmel, California.
I have been enamored by the world of fashion from a very young age, and made the move to LA summer 2009 to attend FIDM and realize my passion for the industry into a career. After graduating, I found myself in a very demanding job that, while fun and the people I worked for were great, I never was able to sew or sketch! So, after alot of considerations, my husband and I packed everything up, I’ve left my job, and we made a move up to beautiful Carmel California. For any new readers, our selection was based off of my husband’s gallery which represents his abstract expressionist work : )
So here I am, finally back to where I think I belong- Im sketching almost daily like when I first started this blog, and working on designing a solo collection for Fall 2013. I hope any readers who stumble upon my little corner of the internet will find some enjoyment in my work, maybe some inspiration, and definately some good music : )
Message, comment, anything- I love meeting new people and especially other creatives moving through this same abstracted reality of one;s own creative process that Im currently on.
I truly hope you enjoy my work!
