I had a tutorial with Jules today about writing my statement of intent.
Today I had a tutorial with Jules, she told me to finish my part 1 project soon and focus on part 2. She also told me to add pantone colours to my trend book.
Today we had our briefing for our second part of our research project.
We have 4 weeks to reseach for our final major project. We have to visualise our dissertation and write a statement of intent and make a gant chart.
After this I went to the library to work on my trend book in photoshop and indesign. I’ve been coming up with a name and these are my choices :
Today I started putting all my images together on photoshop and indesign. I have planned my ayout in my sketchbook. Here are some photos of my work so far :
Today I had a tutorial with Jules. She gave me some artists to look at who support the slow fashion movement. we also discussed the idea of dying my own yarn.
I went to Kew Gardens to see the Rebeccas Louise Law exhibiton “life in death”. I also saw the botanical art. Here are some photos :
I have been looking at artists such as Cara Paizza and Claudy Jongstra. Cara dyes dresses from old flower bouquets and Claudy dyes and makes her own felt from her own flowers and sheep. This has inspired me to make my own dyes. I bought Beetroots, pomegranates, spinach, turmeric, red cabbage and rasperries.
This week I have been looking at Li Edelkoort and trend tablet. I have decided for this project I am going to make a trend book supporting the slow fashion movement. Li Edelkoort is a fashion forecaster and they predict upcoming trends. They predict:colours, fsbrics, textures, mateirals, prints,graphics, beauty/grooming, accessories and footwear.
I have decided to do mine about plants and nature and as eco friendly as possible. I found a magazine called Bloom Magazine which was founded by Li Edelkoort and got lots of inspiration.
Today we had a session with Jules and Susie.
We discussed many topics to do with activism and peace and prosperity such as; Nastywomen movement, climate change, recycled clothing, women’s march in LA and a past exhibiton at the V&A which I had visited a few years ago called “Disobedient Objects”. We also discussed artists such as Susan Ciacolo, Kate Maguire, Johnathon Barnbrook, Roland Bart, Jessica Obden, Susan Sonterey and Kate Fletcher.
So far I really like the idea of doing something to do with Slow Fashion, as it seems like a topic that would be really beneficial to the environment.
