For a recent presentation I created a layout of each look, including spec drawings. I included fabric swatches and toiles of each garment. I noted the problems and hiccups I encountered and what I plan to do to change them. Keeping a record of images in a diary, enabled me to look back through the phases of each toile and continue to improve the fluidity of my collection.
My name is Beki and i am a 27 year old ‘mature student’. This blog will follow the journey of my sketchbook and how my collection is now communicating itself as a standalone, non-binary brand. My sketchbook follows a muse throughout, looking directly at her features, past and body language and how this translates into a persona. My muse is Tilda Swinton.
Year 3 Students
For this module students have researched and developed sketchbooks over the summer ahead of a presentation on the start of term. The sketchbooks are on going sources of inspiration and a jumping point for the work to continue and develop into designs and collections.
For a presentation in February, students must have 3-4 looks toiled with all finishes applied in appropriate fabric to the final garment. A power point will support the presentation with fabric samples, concept development diaries and a fully drawn line up for the collection. The module will then be complete and will become the new module, Creative Development and Realisation.
