Happy Sunday Beauties!
Oh dear, April is almost over. Am I the only that thinks this month is going by very quickly?! Well, rejoice with me because I just concluded my second year in Fashion school. I have just one more year to go before I become a fully certified women’s wear designer. Time really does fly by when you are having fun!
In today’s post, I will be showing you a completed project of mine from school. I am still in awe of the fact that I made a tailored jacket. Really? I did it? Wow! It might not seem like a big deal to you or anyone else but to me, I am really happy with the outcome. The project truly challenged me technically. I pushed myself to adapt to skills that were completely new to me. The project brief asked us to pick a brand to design for and I selected Monki. The Monki brand to me is quite edgy, quirky, mixed with put-together street style. I didn’t want to play safe either with my design. I considered the interior of the new London buses for aesthetic inspiration for my jacket.
I translated the curved beams in the bus to the sleeves, pockets and design details of my jacket.
The jacket took me almost an entire month to complete. I was working on two other projects at the same time though. For the final design, I used a wool based pink fabric.
I recorded a video of me working on this jacket at school. If you haven’t seen it,
Watch it below.
And here is the finished jacket.
