I can’t believe how fast this semester is going!
Today, I thought I’d finally post this project I wrapped up a few weeks ago. The inspiration began with an exploration of British WWI “Tommy” uniforms. Then I moved on to looking at civilian wear and volunteer uniforms. The interesting elements that came from this further design research where the armband and tie-look-a-like placket details.
I feel like my methods and style have (almost magically) solidified this semester. I’m better able to think through garment design and incorporate my inspiration. I’m not sure why, but things are just “clicking”.
Overall, I am really happy with my designs in this project. My plan is to add more 3D (actually created garments) exploration and re-do the layouts of my sketchbook inclusions before putting this in my portfolio.
