Fashion Futures: The Future in the making…

2014, FAD Projects, Fashion Futures

Five weeks in and the next generation makers of #FashionFutures2014 are on their way to creating future continental fashion forward garments, inspired by Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

2Last week the students finalised their designs, completed a working flat and got a head start on drafting patterns for their chosen outfits. With guidance from our amazing industry volunteers, the young designers experienced first hand the basics of pattern manipulation and the importance of design realisation – understanding exactly how they are going to make their garments.
