This week I began to explore ideas for my final major project at uni. Of course, as it's fashion, rather than a lush clothes making course, I have to be trend aware and stick to some of the rules.... ahhhh!
So. I'm going to break away from the colours I'm normally drawn to and use a new theme: Obsession, described as beetle black, diamond teal, nude and fleshpot shade with a shot of spice shade.
Shapewise, I'm going to look at the balance and clash between freedom and structure, boned, perhaps stiff and even strong fabrics worked against soft flowing tulles, chiffons and silks. Grungy thick denims with sheer organza and lace.
Freedom: Plants and birds
Other trends to consider: Embellishmentalism! and Exoticism, both verging on boho.
