We were given an opportunity to work at London Fashion week SS18 collection. We were there on Saturday 16th September and got to work with lovely designers all day💁🏽

We created a Mothers card using 'inDesign'. I copied and pasted the words into 'InDesign' and then changed the font 'poplar' font as it is bold and stands out. Next I copied and pasted individual words and went on 'Type' - 'create outlines' and used the shift key to enlarge the words. I also learned how to rotate words so they were able to fit different angles. 🤗
we managed to change textures on photoshop by using 'filters' :)
London Fashion Week has got spring feels such as feminine floral prints and embroidery to ruffles and bold stripes. Many retailers are doing alternatives to the catwalk which are cheaper and more affordable such as ASOS, Zara and Miss Selfridge .
Pale pink is very spring and summer and as Thornton Bregazzi and blottega Veneta show how it can be worn as a jump suit and a ruffled dress which is classy and very girly which will be nice to wear when we get some nice weather.
Red will always be in.! There were vibrant reds shown on the Doir SS17 catwalk in crinkled tulle dress and my retailers have done cheaper alternatives to this red crinkle dress such as Miss Selfridge and Top Shop.
Today we went to the fashion capital; the fonder Jenny Holloway explained to us different stages of the factory rolls such as garment construction and buying. She tested our buying skills to see what garment would be a good sell and what wouldn't and taught us about cabbage which means not to have wasted fabric and to have a good lay plan so when the pattern pieces are cut out they are touching in order to get the most out of the fabric which is provided.
They offer level 1 and 2 in perfect patterns and pattern cutting to help employers gain experience and skills to work to a high quality level of garment construction and the skills to create a garment quickly and efficiently in order to get on the factory floor and into the work place.
They offer level 3 apprenticeships in buying and designing. They work along side retailers such as TopMan, ASOS and M&co where students can work for the retailers and get qualification at the same time which is good alternative to uni for students who are more hands on .
when we finally come out of this cold weather New York Fashion week's Spring 2017 shows what we'll be wearing in the next season.
Brands such as Tom Ford, Ralf Lauren and Rebecca Minkoff experimented with ' see now buy now' this season which tended to be one shoulder pieces, Vetements style hoodies and revealing bra tops which give off spring vibes as there was a trend of rainbow stripe and florals which featured primary colours which were bold and brilliant and gave off a spring feeling.
Mark Jacobs and Coach experimented with a bad girls' club which references rave cluture and glam rock which I personally think is very out there as they used a range of different mix match items which looked freakish and strange and I just cant imagine the public wearing these pieces to their local supermarket.
Used paint brush in photoshop to create these illustrations
1. Get a a template and paste it into photoshop
2. Use the magic wand to select the area to fill and hold the shift key and click again if there is more that one piece to select
3. Open another window and open a texture into it that you would like on your template and select all (Alt A) copy (alt C) so it copy's onto your clipboard
4. Go back to the selected template and go to edit - paste special - paste into. This will paste the texture into your template and you can enlarge it with CMD T if necessary
Once that is done you can flatten the image and experiment with the colour and texture to create something completely different
