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 our dissertation briefing.
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.
Over the past week I have visited the Gregory Crewdson exhibition at the Photographer’s Gallery in London. I really enjoyed it and loved his use of narrative. Here are some photos from it :
Today was our first day of third year. We were given our new brief for AD394 Creative Research in Fashion Communication.
The brief is called ACTVISM IN FASHION COMMUNICATION.
This project is all about experimenting and testing and for this first week we are going to be doing research in our chosen field.
