Fashion Fabrics Finals Level 5

Fashion Fabric Finals

From my concept through development, I experimented with colour, dyes and different types of fabrics.
I chose to use Silks for my finals, I found this was more suited for my target mark. The luxury and quality in silks are beautiful to work with and dye.
Silk crepe de chine, Silk habotai, Silk twill and Silk organza.

I digitally printed two of my designs and hand dyed/printed two others.
I used software such as photoshop throughout this project and I have grown a lot more confident in using digital application.

These are my final fabrics before University Deadline.
I added hand painting into these as well as hand embroidery with various threads including metallic and UV reactive.

Fashion Fabrics Project Level 5

Fashion Project University

Concept: Delicate Mechanics

This project was to focus on the digital application process.

I chose to use gorgeous intricate bulbs I found in a flea market when on a University trip to New York.
The strange shapes, lines and detail were perfect for the concept I decided to work with.
Transparency, Construction, Intricate, Illustrative, Mechanical.

I wanted to combine mechanical everyday objects, delicate fabrics and intricate drawings.
This was to work alongside a trend for Spring/Summer 2015 on WGSN.

The Colours were cool blues, greys with the occasional flash of bright yellow

This is the target market which sets the standards and starts the latest trends and hughes quality.
