Industry Briefing

I was right, it was Asos! We are designing a menswear collection for Autumn Winter 17 for Asos. They gave us a briefing about the company which was really interesting, particularly the different target markets that they have (Urban drape, indie rocker, basics, etc.) and they essentially explained how they wanted to appeal to all twenty-somethings so we’ve basically been given free reign to do whatever we want. Me and my group decided that we wanted to focus mainly on the urban drape target market, so thinking about longline, oversized, baggy clothing. I started to have a look on pinterest for some ideas...

Asos Menswear Project Briefing

We had our project briefing for our group menswear project today. We have to design a 28 piece collection for industry and make 4 outfits between the 6 of us. It’s quite daunting (especially since I’ve never done menswear before!) but I’m excited to design for a real life brand (we don’t know who it is yet but the rumour going around is that it’s for Asos...!) and try out something new.

Number 51 on depop!

Wow it's been such a long time since I last blogged, so I'll catch up on some of the things that have been going on the past 5 months....
I finished my first year at university in June and I still can't quite believe I've finished a 1/3 of my university life. I had a really really long 4 month summer before starting 2nd year. Luckily I managed to keep myself busy by experiencing my first ever festival, going to Greece and most importantly starting up my Depop shop. I'm so amazed by how well it's done and I found out that last week I had been ranked the 51st top seller on Depop! I've been selling my own handmade clothes on there - mostly made out of a lot of velvet and I can't quite believe it's done so well. Here are some photos from my shop...

lots and lots of velvet!
