Hi hi hi, so we're a bit further into FMP now (meaning I'm in denial about the fact that we have very very little time left, shit). I've just done my designs and yup all round panicking about how much there is to do, so I shall catch you up from last time.
Designer responses, then trying to source printer inks (my nice email to the company didn't get me very far, boooo) then the geometric patterns on a juice carton (lucky find) and links to Chanel SS13
Developing geometric patterns, reverse applique and lovely laser cutting
I turned the keyboard patterns I posted last time into a screen and printed onto cotton and chiffon - I like
Patterns made from tessellating keyboards and then collecting my research as a moodboard for design inspiration
All the patterns and prints I've developed so far to refer to in design and hola end of sketchbook number one
Another pattern using the letters and then spreading inks again on chiffon
Time for fashion illustration research, Jens Laugesen with my response on the right page
More research and my responses
Response to Carlos Aponte with masking tape on fabric, kinda pleased how this came out
And yep, had to admit that I couldn't put off designing for any longer. Went for a simple figure in the end, I did draw it myself though yay. Worked on Saturday, 7am-6pm oooouch and then Sunday and Monday (bank holiday) were devoted to this except a lengthy BBQ. Lay out in the sun doing them on Monday and got super burnt but let's all pray it turns to tan and I don't get skin cancer. Anyway here they are, a couple are horrendous, I'm fully aware of this. Materials are pretty simple: cotton, chiffon, and PVC. Might get a little more inspired/adventurous when I go fabric shopping.
I made my faves at the moment a bit fancier, I think I'm looking at three outfits so I need to make some decisions now
Almost definitely the first look of these four, probably a sleeveless shirt though. Really drawn towards the PVC coat too, and the long skirt actually
Here I probably like the third and fourth, I do wanna use the keyboards though. Ugh decisions
So that's that. I'll update you again unless I die of stress/panic/anger/frustration. Not being dramatic or anything
