Tiffany Wright. Tell us a little bit about yourself so everyone can know who you are and a little bit about your background.

Sure. I've been teaching here, and this was my 14-year impressive. I was here as an adjunct for many years. We never had a full-time faculty in fashion. And we pushed for it for 10 years and finally made it through. This is going on my fourth year as a full-time faculty member for fashion which is enormous for our department since we haven't had anyone full-time. And we currently have five other adjuncts. We've expanded the program three times what it used to be, always running on adjuncts. We have lots of courses. We teach a lot of dual enrollment. And now, in several different high school learning classes, which is exciting. When I was in high school, we had a fashion at most high schools because I grew up here. I started teaching here. There wasn't all the fashion that was gone, they took away all the home neck classes, and so we're starting to bring that back with our dual enrollment. It's been stimulating for me, but also to get students, you know, excited in high school and then to come here to CLS and continue and take our program and get our certificate. I grew up here and graduated from Redwood high school. I took fashion at Redwood my junior year and realized, Yeah, that's what I want to do. And my senior year, I came to see and took a fashion illustration class from Deb Campbell and realized, okay, I want to go into merchandising. I applied to Cal State Long Beach, got my degree there, and worked in the industry.
I worked for a limited corporation for several years. And then later got married and returned to valley to have my family and I have four children. And I got hired here, like I said, about 14 years ago to teach fashion and just really concentrate on growing the program. I rewrote all the classes so that it mirrors Cal State Long Beach, so almost all of our courses are CSU transferable, so if those students move on to a four-year program, these classes will move on with excellent what was the main point of getting yourself into this kind of industry of fashion. Well, I just fell in love with it when I took it in high school, and I just knew that I was always on the creative side. I love clothing. I loved putting outfits together. And so once I took the class in high school and then again took it at CLS, I knew that was the path I wanted to go and then got into Cal State Long Beach. They had a fantastic program. I had some great internships, just an avenue out of college in the personal shopping area at Saks Fifth Avenue at Costa Mesa. And that was fun, helped to put on fashion shows for them. I also worked for a small baby store. I got to go to the market and buy, so I got my hands on buying. That was a fun experience, and then I started working for the limited Corporation. For several years I worked in California and the Bay Area, and I worked all. Very few are all I was all overall.


Do you have a design or anything? Did you want to do a show?


I didn't do the design. Basically, you usually go into the design aspect, which is the sewing drawing making or the business-marketing steps, like designing like the process. Well, that would probably be best if I could have one of my teachers in here could talk to you about that because she's done that. I did more of the business side, so that is different. There are two pathways, usually, design or merchandising, so my background is in merchandising.

What is your advice for anyone that wants to go into the field of fashion?


Take a few classes because you never know until you start taking classes, and then do as many internships as possible and different internships because I worked for a mom-and-pop children's store in California. I got to do everything there because my husband and wife owned it. They didn't have any fashion background, so I got to do buying with them. I got to do merchandising. I got to, you know, get the retail product and the apparel and price it because that's a whole other area. Yeah, learning how to price the merchandise. You know what you'll put it on sale for and decide what you'll make from that markup. I did all the visual merchandising for the store, so I got to do every aspect when working for a small store. There are only a few of you, so you'd have to have many hats. And then when I worked for Saks Fifth Avenue, a giant retail department store with very different types of retail. You have very high-end clothing and very high-end customers. It is different for me from living in valley, where we don't have a giant department store like that. I worked with personal shopping, and we had the most elite customers coming in. We swept them back into this closed room that was this beautiful individual dressing room. We would bring them lunch and cater to every knee they might have.
We choose to clothe, they try it on, and we'd be there just servicing them one-on-one, which was incredible. And then, I also got to help put on fashion shows to highlight different designers in their stores. Choosing models again is headshots, you know, being there for the actual event, which is the hustle and bustle all day long. It's amusing because it's enjoyable, lots of work, but fun to put on a fashion show. And then I also helped with a little bit of the marketing for that store. So that was, you know, also exciting to see the different types of marketing ads that they put in before social media. I'm sure, paper.
A lot of people are not going to understand that they want to see that. And then I started working for the limited because of that time in the 1990s, that was like one of the biggest retail stores they owned. Victoria's Secret, Lane Bryant Lerner Express Bath, and Body Cacique was colossal company. Chose that company to work for because of, you know, the range they had, and I knew that if I didn't like the limited or didn't look at that category, I could move into different areas. I managed those stores in California for several years. The designers out there who is the most important. Oh, I can't pick one. That's like picking a child. There are so many, and they all are so different. And I mean, I see it as walking into an art gallery. How would you pick one favorite you can because they're there. They all are different and unique, and enjoyable. And they all, you know, speak something different. Enjoy looking at all the different, old, and new designers. Because again, to me, it's art. I just love to see, you know, what they produce and how they produce it and kind of the flair of that person.


For future reference, for example, want to own a clothing store?
What would you say to them?


Again, it goes back to those internships, like getting training or working for someone. Find a successful person running a business you would like yours to look like and work for them. Because that's that is your best way. Why reinvent the wheel. Find someone that successful that you can learn under. You don't have to make those same mistakes that maybe they made. They'll teach you how to do it the right way. And you always have someone you can look at and decide, you know, what, what area you want to go into because you're, you know, your work, you've already worked for them, and you've already seen kind of their structure. I think that would be the best thing. Also, it would work for several companies that may be the ones you want. And then that would give you the experience to open your own.

Maryland Chaney, tell us a little about yourself and how you entered the fashion industry.

 I went through all the sewing classes I could take in high school and then went to college and studied fashion design at Washington State University. Then took another course of study, which led to a job in the garment industry. Working for a sportswear manufacturer as an assistant designer way assistant to the assistant, I worked there for about six or seven years. Through various positions, I worked to make my way up to children's wear designer.


Do you have a favorite or memorable moment when you were in doing any fashion designs

on a company?


I worked for a sportswear manufacturer, so they did a lot of activewear and beach-type wear and things like that. And when my favorite part of the job was that we got to pick colors every season that we would go into the line. Still, we also got to design textiles, so we got to design stripes, and we would sit and cut the fabric into little strips and put them on paste-up paper. Create stripes that would go to the manufacturers, so we can design stripes in our fashion-forward colors and have a monk work together as a collection. 


When you have a moment when you can't think of an idea, what do you do to get creative?


Well, my career went from the fashion industry to the film industry. I've always been a film lover. So for me, I look to history. I look to historical costumes and periods that inspire me, like I love the 40s. I love the 20s, for me to be able to look at historical fashion period historical costumes as well as the art during those periods and how it all tied together. 


The history that you have. Do you have a favorite of your own? 


My wedding dress. Of course, yeah. My wedding. Dress. Yes. Yeah, because I'm a builder. I make patterns, and I build things. Yes. Can you describe what it looked like? Oh, it was so 1990, like it was super slim mermaid style, with a skirt. A 20-foot-long train came off in the back and had silk foreplay. It had these drapey sleeves and a natural low back. But the fabric was quite simple, it had just simple lace with some beads on it, but it was a mashup of all my favorite things. But it was very 90's.


Did it take you long to design your wedding dress? 


Not really. I had the bridesmaid dresses the day before the wedding. I made my dress, the bridesmaids, my husband's shirt, and Spats for him, and homemade Yeah, I did the whole thing.


What got you all to migrate? 


I went from the fashion industry to specialty costumes and building superheroes. Yeah, animals, dinosaurs, bears. Iron man etc. I was trying to figure out a way to kind of find something that was a little calmer. Something a little bit more than I can give back and teach kids that because when I got started in the film industry. I hope to bring something a little different with my entertainment industry background and help show that there are so many choices.


Who is your influencer? Who was your most motivator to continue with fashion?


That's a hard one. It was so long ago. I have to say one of my favorite designers back when I was Issei Miyake, and he's a Japanese designer. And he did amazing things which went more along the costume route. He did high fashion, but everything was very draping and intricate, and all his patterns were terrific. And I love complicated pattern making and designs. Yeah, and very, very, very Japanese. And sensibility where it was very, there was a lot of origami and a lot of draping and folding and fascinating pattern work and his, his blades are—he and Kenzo. And there were several influential European designers at the time. I could go on Terry McClure and Sean Volga TA, but there were many exciting design perspectives. Wow.


With these moods, can you get more in detail on these boards?


Well, a mood board is just. It takes the interested in color and style, and they like of your design aesthetic. It's understanding elements of mine and form and color and, you know, the essential aspects of design taking that and creating a board that has a cohesive feeling. And so that when you look at it, you can see the designer's aesthetic or sensibility from it. Oh, as I said, they're not all designers, but they can all put down what they like.


What advice would you give to who want to take the fields that you have?


Well, I would say, to find a destination as far as you know, there are places where you can do fashion successfully. There's a lot more now with online companies and things like that. But you need to find a place and focus on a particular specialty if you will, so don't try to do it all. You know if there's one thing you can focus on, bridal wear, menswear, sportswear, or whatever to find. Take as much information as possible, whether in technical classes or learning the basics of pattern making, draping, and sewing, because many designers don't know that. They're not nearly the successful ones who know how things are put together. Even learning the nuts and bolts, I think, is essential.

Art gallery shows various artworks, and in the art exhibit, many people would experience art forms coming to life. The art madness is never an arid moment, but each Artist comes with a unique art display from around the world to the art gallery. The art gallery teaches aspects of Art education and appreciation. The art gallery is never the same artist and changes each time. The gallery has a wide range of cultures, surrealism, expressionism, realism, pop culture, etc.


Furthermore, Amie Rangle is an educated and expert artist who shows others the world of creativity. What inspired Amie Rangle was an art class that made her bring out their creativity as an artist. The Art course teacher is why Amie Rangel was influenced to move her career as an Art major. Amie Rangel has interesting visional aspects with hands-on to create stories.


On the contrary, at the art gallery, an artist Bechrun LoMile set up spoke about the Art he had created. The artist's in-depth meaning behind "German spy” was influenced by a friend group that is a German artist who has conspiracies about the German spy. The government would go through phones and personal emails and spy on people. Someone leaks information about the spying on german secrets. The artist wanted to crest something about a German spy but twisted it into an American spy. Behind the Art is about the  "Truth and what is off the side of truth.” (LoMile) Bechrun LoMile also stated, “Saying something that might sound wrong. Even in the Political approach, contestant  truth."(LoMile) 


Meanwhile, once walking down the art gallery, hidden forms would surprise anyone when looking closer at the sneaky small and enormous scales from LoMile artwork. Widerige in objects such as 4-D Art displays monetary hues shaded browns on all the clusters of woods. The 4-D form of stairs is tiled to a 60-degree angle while the door next is laid down flat. A 3-D object of small and large forms displayed different surrealistic approaches that are spaced out. In print 3-D, objects contain colorful hues, Orangie, slivers, and blacks with images such as triggers, a man, and volumes frames. So Image yourself walking up the stairs; it would give a dark, surrealistic feel.


 What is behind creative thinking is Bechrun LoMile thought about the exchange program. For example, the art project collected American secrets in exchange for Germany, which is the installation of 4-D red LD lights with lettering called the Truth booth. Each message display is what an individual express under the truth booth. Each person's truth booth would be mixed up and combined for the installations. Furthermore, the installation display spaces out all over the madness. 


            The gallery doesn't stay still because all artists' individuality is displayed in their works, like Bachrun LoMele. Appreciate the American Spy that brings out the wonders by looking at art. The truth and massage aren't far off lies when further understanding Bachrun LoMele's approach. Appreciate Bechrun LoMele’s dark message glooms the stage at the art gallery. The art gallery showcases Bachrun LoMele's artwork for anyone who enjoys the art.  





Brewster: Jeffrey, please tell everyone about yourself?


Jeffrey: My name is Jeffrey, I'm the creative consultant at Design Solutions.

Our head office is in Jacksonville Fl, I work at the creative office in California

I'm a software engineer by profession. Honestly, I was not the brightest kid.

I always had a spark for creative doings. I completed my degree and never looked back went straight to the art school and here I'm after good 10 years working as a creative consultant.

I enjoy my work I love it and it keeps me going.

Coming to animation, I was into animation from the day I saw Mickey mouse on the screen.

I was amazed at how can he move.

How is he talking? and all the magical stuff just flying around on the screen.

I started learning and observing every part of the animation.

During my time in the art school, I was more focused on animation than on live drawing, fundamentals of figure drawing and etc.

I realized later that I needed to study all the rest of the fundamentals in order to animate something.

I'm grateful to all the people who have helped me, their constructive feedback and consideration have made me the great artist and consultant that I'm today.

Speaking of projects, I have worked with Cartoon Network, WHO, Hubco, Warner brothers, and many more amazing organizations.

I have a one of my works a conversion of 2D to 3D that provides a lot of information on how different styles of animation can affect an audience
