Print Design Development

So yesterday I had a Design tutorial with some of my tutors about my concept and designs. I decided to look into the idea of “Preservation of the Natural World”. Whether it’s animals, food, flowers etc, organisms begin to decompose overtime. I want to explore the idea of capturing and preserving the essence of natural beauty that Mother Nature has to offer. Thankfully the concept was understood. However I was told to steer clear from plastic like fabric that I originally was going to use to make jackets. Instead, I will be looking into fabrics such as silk, lycra, cotton, and neoprene. At the moment, I am potentially deciding on whether or not I should incorporate digitally printed silk as part of my collection. In terms of color palette, I am looking into ivory white, nature brown, and iridescent blue/green. Below are some deign developments I made by using Photoshop: Pritn design on templates Print Design 14 Print Design 16 Print Design 18 Print Design 19 Print Design 21

Fashion Theory & Concept

A few days ago, I had a hand in for one of my main projects for this term. The main focus was to produce 2-3 garments, 12 portfolio pages, a sketchbook, toiles and their appropriate developed pattern pieces.

For my concept research, I decided to look into the idea of “the modern day explorer”, inspired by my summer visit in Lisbon, Portugal. In terms of market sector, I decided to explore the Active/Outwear designing a range of functional pieces. Each outerwear garment has this cohesive design feature of transparency through the choice of fabric such as airtex.

These past few months have been quite stressful however I believe that after looking my portfolio pages that it all paid off in the end.Below are some portfolio pages from this
