Monday 21st September was the briefing to all Fashion Design students. Let the research begin!
First year students were given an impromptu homework task during the induction week – to make, customise or recycle a garment over the weekend to bring to their briefing. Here is a selection of the garments produced: a rag knitted waistcoat by Jeanette Carlton-Carew, fluro dungarees by Brody Randall, customised denim by Adeloa Elugbadebo-Solomons, lined jacket by Michaela Punnet and customised printed asymmetric shirt by Faye Cochran.
The first design project began with a Fashion Trail in Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Cheshire Street in London. During the trip, students sourced vintage garments that act as a starting point for their first design projects.
