Hey! I'm Gemma, I'm 20 and a Fashion/Textiles student at Somerset College of Arts and Technology (partnered with Plymouth University). This is a blog solely for my work, inspiration, creative thoughts and anything that takes my fancy. Feel free to send me a message, your opinion is welcome! :)
death-by-individuality said: Hi, my names Lisa and I was wondering if you could help me. I searched # fashion student and your blog came up. Next year, I'm going to be applying to art school, most likely for a fashion course. However, I'm not sure what to expect from it. Like what the assignments are like, what projects you have to do? If you could help me out at all your insight would be so much appreciated! I love your designs by the way, they're do unique!
Hey, of course I can help you :) I’m doing a Fashion/Textile course currently, but I’m in the same studio as all the Fashion Design students so I have some insight into what they do. The courses are pretty different, the assignments they’ve had so far are mainly based on learning the basics of pattern cutting and producing a toile, along with a sketchbook of designs and research etc. The F/T course is more based on techniques of fabric manipulation/print/computer aided design which is achieved through a lot of drawing and research, rather than garment construction. The brief I’ve got at the moment is to choose two objects to draw from and develop your research with it, so it can go pretty conceptual if we’d like it to. The focus isn’t so much on producing garments at the moment, but the project I’m currently doing we’re encouraged to do draping on mannequins and we’re allowed to make toiles and mocks if we would like to. The course content varies MASSIVELY depending on where you go, so I’d do a lot of research into it! I hope this kinda helps you haha :)@1 year ago
