So the 2012 recruits of Fashion Futures have already proved they can design, but what happens when they have to take 2D to 3D? FAD reports.
We are really astounded with the dedication of this year’s teen designers. Perhaps a testament to what is happening in universities and the rise in tuition fees, but this is one focused fashion bunch.
The biggest test in Fashion Futures always comes in the pattern cutting stages. Translating a 2D design from paper into a 3D, functioning garment can be a daunting task even for the most experienced seamstress. Luckily with the support of some excellent teaching our 16-18 year olds are making great progress, while also benefiting from the expertise of industry volunteers from the likes of River Island, Karen Millen and Coast, as well as several big high street suppliers.
We are really looking forward to updating the blog with some more pictures over the next few weeks, as the final garments really start to take shape. Read all the posts so far from the Fashion Futures workshops, or sign up to our blog (right hand panel) to receive updates straight into your inbox.
