‘Natural Beauty’

Progressed from

Freman College — GCSE

Statement

The key aspects of my project are delicate flowers and nature.  I have been inspired by the 2005 ready to wear collection by Viktor and Rolf to inspire and influence my design sheets with their bold style. I researched sleep wear and bedrooms after looking at the interior design of bedrooms; this encouraged me to look at wall paper and the work of Timorous Beasties. This allowed me to capture floral designs together with the bright, bold concept of Viktor and Rolf’s work, to create my own developed research and sleepwear designs.

‘A book of fashion’ 

Progressed from

St Mary’s Catholic School, Bishops Stortford — GCSE

Statement

My project is based on fashion photography. I have selected magazines pages and worked into them by using various collage techniques whilst experimenting with acetate, paint, folded paper and thread and stitch techniques. Whilst I researched this project using my chosen books and magazines, I was inspired by shapes, form and structure which later inspired fabric samples and fashion design ideas.

‘Sport through fashion’

Progressed from

Presdales School — GCSE

Statement

In this project I have looked at fashion and its impact on sportswear. Recently sportswear has become very much on trend and for my FMP I wanted to explore the relationship between fashion and sport. I have created a young, bright, contemporary look to showcase through the garments I have made. Fashion and sport are the perfect combination.

‘Non-Naturalistic Expression’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

This project is based on Expressionist and Fauvist art. I have been inspired by the Fauve art style of Henri Matisse and contemporary textile art by Maurizio Anzeri to create a dress inspired by their work. I have used Anzeri’s ‘Stitch on paper technique’ with Matisse’s painting ‘The Green Stripe’ and to create this, I have used different stitch techniques to highlight the contoured features of the face. The machine embroidery technique has also been used to highlight ‘fake beauty’ through this piece as it shows one side of the face as the natural beauty of an aging women and on the other side a more youthful image of Madam Matisse, eliminating any blemishes and ageing features.

‘Under The Sea’

Progressed from

Birchwood High School — GCSE’s.

Statement

This project is based on the bright colours and different patterns and textures found in the plants and animals that live under the sea. I have translated my research and design ideas into my final garment by using a rich blue fabric which relates to the ocean and by creating decorations using a shimmery organza which I feel really relates to my theme.

‘Synthetic Nature’

Progressed from

The Nobel School — GCSE

Statement

This project is influenced by Breast Cancer cells and their destructive path. The cells mutate, invade, and overwhelm the body. My work reflects this control and distortion within the body.  The sheer fabrics highlight an ‘unearthly ambience’ and contrast the tightly laced up sections which signify how people become a prisoner in their own body. I have created a ‘second skin’ and challenged the preconception that sheer fabrics are delicate by adding connotations with mutating cancer cells to highlight the power of the cells and their aggressiveness to further reinforce the unpredictable and deceitful nature of this disease.

‘Sea-life’

Progressed from

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art & Design (Fine Art)

Statement

My aim for this project was to capture the beauty of the animals and the coral reef deep in the ocean. I have looked in detail at sea-life through visual research and fashion design ideas. To further develop my theme I have looked at the effects of climate change and what humankind has done to the oceans and the sea life living there. I want to make people see the effects of climate change and inspire them to take action.
