Life has been pretty hectic and the time has come to catch up and add the work I have done this college year.
The work below was our first module after the Summer break.
We had to create garment fronts. I have chosen to use the trend, Subterranean.
While on my holidays on Kos I loved the pebbles on the beach and used some of the drawings I did of these pebbles. I also had taken photographs of the stratum in the rocks while on holiday in Cornwall a couple of years ago. These were combined with drawings I did of fossils shaped like a heart.
This is my mood board below, using fashion photographs, pictures from magazines, my own photographs and pebble drawings.
Once I had created my design motifs in my sketch book I decided to tie dye and dip dye some fabrics, see one below.
I used parts of my drawings of pebbles and manipulated them in photoshop, adding colour. I love the scale of the first one below and the second one I can imagine on a t-shirt.
The third photo shows the garment front.
Not the best photographs I'm afraid, but I feel the whole collection is quite 60's looking and lend themselves well to a simple shift dress.
