Sorry for the rubbish pic, i really don't have the patience to try to work out the right settings, i might have another go later.
The first of my projects i mentioned just over a month ago. It's about escaping, and where my escape destination would be. I have to design two complementary outfits which express this. After some serious mind mapping, i decided to go for dreams. When im ill, upset or angry i tend to sleep, for me it's an escape. So i thought that would be the perfect idea.
Im looking in to current designers and previous designers such as Viktor & Rolf A/W 2005/6 Isn't it AMAZING? Im hoping to get some rough ideas done this weekend so i can draw some illustrations at uni next week.
It's a competition and the winner gets £2000 and a work placement! Oh one can dream!
(see what i did there?)
The next project is my final major project which is to design AND make 6 complementary outfits. Which is double to what i did last year This brief is totally my own, and you can pretty much do it on whatever you like. My tutor suggested i carry on with the dream theme as it was really original and could really 'go to town' on it! Im so excited, my favourite part of projects is the whole research, inspiration and mood board part so as im doing it for two projects i'll be able to use loads of stuff! The trend predictions im looking in to right now are pretty much made for my project so im well stoked about it. Im thinking nightwear as outer wear?
Then finally my 6000 word dissertation, as soon as i got my brief i knew exactly what i wanted to do it on.. the size 0 debate. I was outraged that being a size 10 was considered plus size. Im so looking forward to getting in to it all. Im starting to look at news articles, and luckily because of the recent fashion weeks there is a fair bit around at the mo.
If anyone has any quotes/lyrics/sayings about dreams or any know of any collections that have a specific dream theme then please let me know (i already have about 10) Also if anyone has any information about the size 0 debate or weight related issues in the industry i'd really appreciate your help.
Right, better get cracking!
