Personal Work of a Fashion Student

A recording of my work.

Post 14

Well that is most of my work so far, 2 year’s worth, half a degree worth… there are some other bits and bobs I have done but don’t have any recordings of so, annoyingly.

I shall be from now on, keeping this up to date with my Uni Work in particular but will also post up any creativeness I get up to.

'Tailored Jacket'

This was the last sewed garment of 2nd Semester and 2nd Year.

Very daunting at the start and to be fair the whole way through. Considering none of us knew about tailoring and this was our first jacket we did not have a clue.

Our lecturers more or less left us too it - if we didn’t have our technicians most of us would not have a jacket to show for, wee angels they were. 

We were in groups, again, for this project so we all had to make sure our jackets were cohesive and worked as a collection.

We had a rather stressful situation visa vi fabric, we wanted a wool based fabric, due to its handle and suitability to a tailored jacket, however to get 18 meters (how much our group of 6 needed) of the same fabric was never going to happen unless we bought it in industry. So we had to go with two different fabric, but both were wool based just one was thicker and had cashmere in it.

Sadly our group didn’t get a line - up of out jackets and sadly these are the best pictures I got of mine. (Mostly due to the fact I was still sewing the night before hand-in)

I am really happy with my jacket in the end - especially my stand collar - mmmmm, I’m really looking forward to getting it back after marking…

'Fashion Graphics and Illustration'

My Final 6 Images. I am really happy with how they have all come out, took many a hour.
The last two pictures are of them all A3 Mounted and together with the other aspects I had to hand in - 2 research files, sketchbook and my moodboard.

'Fashion Graphics and Illustration'

From my moodboard you can see my chosen Designer was Chanel. I love the brand also it was just after the Paris - Edimbourg Metiers d’Art show at Linlithgow which I absolutely loved. 

The other images are all of developing illustrations for my final submission.

'Fashion Illustration and Graphics'

Our brief changed half way into the course, which was not ideal but actually I preferred the change in the end.
We were to choose a Designer and look at Fashion Illustrators and find our own way to combine both and take inspiration from both into creating something of our own.

The Fashion Illustrator I love so was my instant choice was David Downton. His work inspired me to do a lot of my own work like his. These images show mostly this bringing into it aspects that I learnt in the first 6 weeks and working into them on Photoshop.

'Fashion Graphics and Illustration'

When I first found out this was one of my modules for 2nd Semester I was excited and fearful. I do enjoy drawing and illustrating BUT only when it goes the way I want it to do so or in a way I like. Which is very rare for me.

I came to the conclusion that I am not very good at drawing but in the later weeks I came to enjoy it so ‘whatever’.

In the first 6 weeks we were given different ways to create our illustrations. From 10 - 60 second poses to draw from, collage, paint, mark-making, continual line, blind drawing - you name it we did it.

These images are a selected few that I am happier with in comparison to the other work I had…

'Knitwear Design and Assembly'


These are just a couple of ‘interesting’ pictures I took of my ‘Sculptural Fabric’ and my ‘Silver Birch Tree Fabric’.

Detailing just how sculptural the neckline and waist-belt is and the birch tree quality of these two knits.

I left the yarn hanging in my Birch tree knit to suggest the roots of the tree and the other photos are of the real birch tree bark i trapped in-between the circular welt knit.

Full Page Pictures of my final knitted Fabrics.
The first two fabrics have photos of the front and reverse of the fabric as, although not that noticeable, there are slight differences.

'Knitwear Design and Assembly'

This project was to create 5 final fabrics that could be fashioned for A/W 13/14.

We were to choose a theme we found in research. The one that I was drawn to was ‘Heightned Nature’.

The top photos are my 5 final knitted fabrics inspired by ‘Nature’ and ‘Sandra Bucklund’ displayed on a 1/2 Scale Mannequin.
Heather, Foxglove, Silver Birch were my inspiration for my ‘Nature Knits’ and my Sculptural Piece inspired from the work of Sandra Backlund.

So with the combination of my colour scheme and inspiration I, on both V- Bed and Domestic knitting machines created what you can see.

The other images are of my basic moodboards from where I drew my inspiration for my final work.
I really love my final garments, so to speak, and may choose to develop knit further in my collections in 3rd and 4th year.
