For my finals I decided to create a collection of clothes that represented my 3 years of college by using varying degrees of one pattern, I made the coats from cotton-organdy, using the organdy for its architectural qualities. The coats increase in size as the year’s progress and are further differentiated by pockets embellished with machine stitched text that can be interpreted as ‘pockets of memories’.The viscose jersey dresses are individually designed and digitally printed, created from a selection of my own artwork which I like to think echo’s my aesthetic and personality. As with the coats the dresses become longer with each passing year.
