Portfolio Pages

Over the last few week, I have been working on my portfoilio pages for my childrenswear projects.

This is my first board. We had to do a shop report on the chosen store in our project. My store was Next. As I talked about on my other blog post (here), I went into Next and looked at the collections in there.

After that, I went into competitor stores and compared their clothes to the ones in Next. I also wrote about this in my other post here. As well as high street stores, I looked at a higher end, designer store so that I could get a feel for what more money would be. I also looked at some of the trends in childrens clothing now so I know whats in trend.

For my moodboard, I wanted to show a range of ideas that I have been thinking about. I put on a few trend boards so that it shows what trends I was interested in from the beginning. I put on a couple of artists and designers that I inspired me. I then put on some inspiration, the spaceman outfits, the NASA photos, and some next clothing that I liked the idea of.

My development sheet is a collection of drawings and pieces that I did to help develop this project. We did a workshop in class where we had to bring in objects that related to our theme. As mine was about space I found it had to bring in objects that related to that, so I brought in as much as I could, but I also looked at objects by other people doing the same project. Later on, I did some marbelling because it reminds me of a galaxy. After the marbelling, I scanned it into the computer and adjusted the colour levels so that they were bright colours.

To help with designing childrens clothing. Becky brough in some clothing where we could look at the different design aspects of them. This really helped me because I could fully analyse the clothing and know what it is that manufactures put in them. The badges was one of the ideas that really stuck with me, I just didn’t want to do it in the common way they are usually done.

This is my lineup so far. I kept everything quite simple because childrens clothing is basic, but I tried to add new and improved aspects that I haven’t seen before. My dungarees, jeans and hoodie were all designed with a astronaut suit in mind. I really like this idea and I like the reinforced padding that I put on the knees, this is for a space man aesthetic but also as a safety measure for when a child is playing because it will protect their knees.
