PDP Presentation

For the end of my third year, I have to do a presentation on my final collection. The presention is about the FMP, the inspiration and the final outcomes. But I also have to discuss designers, social media, and future plans.

This is the page about my collection. The collection vintage inspired, but has been moderized to be something that any girl now could wear. I wanted it to have a feel of homeliness and handmade with the quilting and topstitched patterns. The idea was that it was going to be a white collection because I didn’t want to dip into the textiles side at all. However, my ideas did change slightly and I dyed some of my trims because I wanted the yellow involved more that stitching and zips. The colour yellow came from my favourite page in a magazine that was in the memory box.

This is the page about the inspiration. I tried to include most of the objects, or the ones that are mostly used in my collection.

This is my first dress. I included the inspiration from my sketchbook, the mannequin design I started with, and the final technical drawing. I also labeled up the drawing so that the viewers could see the didn’t elements in my design.

I included some photos of the processes and the toile to show the making of my dress and what I had to do. Some of these are the photos from my instagram too.

I included a page on the issues that I had with this dress because there were quite a few. The bodice was a massive issue. As the pattern was from a 1950s pattern book, when I followed it exacly it came out very small and no one could get in it. So after a made a toile I had to adapt it so someone would be able to wear. There was an issue with the skirt later on because I ran out of fringing so I had to shorten it and didn’t have time to buy more and dye it. I then had to shorten it even more when my pleated section shrunk and and I had to take up the hem to make it fit.

I included photos of the final outcome, aswell as the actual dress in the presentation. And the professional David Lam photo that was done in the photoshoot.

I did the same with my second outfit. I included some scans from my sketchbook, my mannequin design and my technical drawing. I also labeled up this one so you could tell what details were put into this dress too.

I had a few issues with this dress, much like the one before. The main issue was the star cutout that I had at the back. It was originally a cutout, but then I thought it might be easier to make it a yellow panel. But when it came to doing that I found it really hard to sew in and got fed up with it. In the end I ended up going back to the cut out idea and just sewing in some facing into the back of it.

I included my other 2 designs so they what else I had to some in my collection. I had nealy finished design 3 at this time, but it was on a mannequin in the sewing room so I couldn’t take it with me. My design 4 had actually changed since then, I designed a 5th dress, but I actually prefered it to my original so I swapped it out.

I looked at 2 designers for this collection. It was suggested to look at Delpozo for construction ideas. I thought they would help me thing outfit the box a little bit and bring some interesting construction ideas into it. I also looked at moschino because they had some dresses that were inspired by objects, much like my entire collection.

I had to talk out any social networking that have done. I had recently opened up a fashion instagram account so I included some photos of that and my handle @shazziiee_fashion. I also included my blog, which I have been keeping up to date over the last 3 years. I know that the younger years have to keep one so I thought if I included it then they could look at it for inspiration. My Blog

I had to look at exhibitions and places that I could independently showcase my skills. That weekend had been the Secret Vintage Fair and I went to have a look. I thought that if I went into my little fashion collection then I thought this would be an ideal place because it is vintage based, the inspiration of fashion style, and it’s local, so I would be easy for me to get to.

The final thing I had to include was future plan. My dream has always been to have my own little shop and sell my own creations. I did start this just before my started my degree. I used to make my own jewellery and hair clips, and I opened up my own etsy store to sell them. I have had it open this whole time, but I have been working more on my degree than my shop. I have had experience with etsy so if I wanted to start a bigger store then I would know what to do.
