Passionate Fashion Designer/Bartender/Adventurer & Backpacker
Week four started with another manufacturing session for the tailored jacket. Tailoring requires more attention to detail than I first thought. Every stitch matters, even in simply tailored pieces, and it’s important that we follow the rules and patterns closely when creating our jacket for the collection.
We also had a menswear garment design seminar with Aaron. This was really useful as he taught us some tricks that will make pattern cutting for our outfits easier, which will hopefully save us some time.
Part of the week was spent looking around the city for inspiration, mainly focusing on graffiti and murals around Hockley, this style will hopefully be a big part of our collection. We also had another silhouette fitting this week, and I think we’re getting close with the length/fit of the outerwear.
This week felt more protective than the last two, we established deadlines for detail research which will help us stick to a schedule. We’ve also planned a trip to Birmingham for next week to source fabric and look for more inspiration around the city!
