Digital Technology - Final Project

My final project for my first/only year at Ravensbourne was much more productive that I might have imagined. Put simply, the project was to encourage us to explore new ways of presenting our work 'digitally' and take a closer look at branding, competitors etc. Here's some of what i came up with:

Some quick prints using layers and staggering

I named my imaginary brand after Leonard EULER who was a pioneering Swiss mathematician and physician seeing as my project was based around  geometry, physics and the such.

Models taken from RAD Hourani's work
We were told to make a final line-up of 10 pieces which obviously isn't much for a 8 week project but all on illustrator was a joke, Upon 100 design rough in the sketchbook.

You can see it's been rushed a bit because not everything is in proportion etc. but you get the gist


P.S As promised here is my feedback at a C+/B- Grade

'Good verbal breakdown with supporting digital visuals. Strong competitor breakdown. Shockingly bad fabric board. The photoshop documents need to be saved as jpegs for presentation purposes. It is not acceptable for work to be presented as individual files. Digital work must be presented as a finished presentation in appropriate software. Work on this over the summer. Well the very positive thing to note here is that your work has improved dramatically. The standard of your digital work is impressive with very distinctive and original ideas that reflect cutting edge menswear aesthetic. However, time management and organisation/preparation remains an issue for you. The sketchbook is thin in content with no colour exploration. Work hard on addressing the remaining issues over the summer to put yourself at the top of your peer group for your level 2 experience. More content and organisation and consistency of quality!'

Fashion For Show -Video

It's been a while, hasn't it?

I'm just posting the link to the short but sweet Fashion for Show video to show you more of what I saw from this post.

Remember it?

Also, I thought I'd let everyone know I'm moving universities to LCF (London college of fashion) because frankly my current university (Ravensbourne) is a joke. 

I'm going to be going back into year 1 for menswear unfortunately but it's definitely going to be worth it and hopefully the blog will get a 'eency' bit more interesting.

D.I.Y Trousers

Nothing major just a small bit of D.I.Y on some old pinstripe trousers

They weren't deliberately 'high waisted' they were just a 'good fit' which meant I actually had to wear them at my natural waist which made them feel high-waisted.

What I decided to do was to make the hem circumference ridiculously small by pleating the fabric. 

(which basically means overlapping)

This meant I had to add some zips to get them on some...saved me rolling them up or 'pinning' them.

I only had two pairs of trousers that I could wear with my creepers before.

 This was actually more stressful than you might imagine and took much longer than expected.

P.S If you would like you can join my Facebook page which i post loads of incongruous stuff to like other blogs.
