First years have just presented a selection of garments and design work to Warehouse, after a 10 week live project.
The designers from the iconic British brand introduced the trends to the students: 80’s, Tea Dance and Parachute. Students then developed a chosen trend and were asked to produce sketchbook, design boards and a final outfit that summed up their take on the trend.
Half way through the project Warehouse returned to look at toiles and fabric suggestions, working alongside pattern and design staff. Following on from the review, students then progressed to their final garments, after Production tutorials to discuss appropriate finishes for the market level.
Warehouse were impressed by the students sympathetic approach to each trend and how they incorporated some current key trends and embraced fabric. They are now asking 5 students to submit CVs with the possibility of a summer Internship.
