Phew....I guess I better start blogging again considering I haven't been on here for almost 2 months due to so much work, chaos + stress.
Where to start......well first off I started my Final Major Project about 3 weeks ago and I only have about 3 and a half more months left before all this madness is over. For my FMP I have decided to specialise in ''occassion wear'' in which I will be taking inspiration from Haute Couture embroidery, 1920's, 1930's and Art Deco. The coulours I will be using will be of white and different shades of gold/bronze and in experimenting with beading embellishment, dying of fabrics and fabric manipulation. My collection will consist of 4-5 items, 2 dresses one short the other long, a cape, a pair of cuffs and if I have time a neck piece/jewellery piece. My collection is going to be called 'In Its Imperfect Setting' the idea is to convey the beauty of the dress in it's richness of detail with luxe fabrics and embroidery and it's imperfection will come from either areas of worned looking manipulated parts of the dress and that of the wearer. I would like to convey that the wearer could be wearing the most beautiful garment in the world but what is hidden within herself is another deeper secret in which the public can not see.
I am looking forawrd to getting started on the actual making of my first garment, which I hope to do so either by tomorrow or Thursday. I am so nervous about the time limit and preassure to get this first garment made in which we are expected to have completed in 3 weeks. We have to have it done for the end of the year graduate brochures and the photoshoot for this will take place around the 1st and 2nd of April. Oh My Word......Craziness!!
