Well first of all I can tell you how it feels to have your a-levels not considered "real" (I did art, graphics and textiles), even being one of the top students in the school people still didn't think I'd achieved what some other people with As etc. achieved.
I think your exam is structured quite differently to how mine was however, but either way... art and design, far harder than people seem to realise!
Anyway, this is beautiful, I love the ideas behind it, and I know people on my foundation that couldn't have thought of such a clever idea from a title. You should be really pleased with it, it would be great to see pictures of someone wearing it Smiley
I hope your exhibition goes well!

This is a bit old compared to my last few posts.
But anyway Smiley, this was from a "Personal" project in my exploratory phase in my foundation. It's an extension of a project where I worked with the theme "Mapping Space".

Anyway, photos:

That last photo was painful... I was lying on a mirror!
Anyway, all comments welcome Smiley

Do you know how many tabs you've used? Calculate how much it would cost to buy that many cans, then figure out roughly how long you spent doing it and add that to the price. Then add a bit of profit, it's so good!

I'm very nearly finished with my Art+Design Foundation Diploma (Fashion specialism), and these are the photos from my Final Major Project.
I've been working on this for 8 weeks, made all the patterns from scratch using my own measurements. I've made the jacket and the trousers (not the t-shirt in the first 4 photos though). The photos after the fashion edits are from a fashion show that some of my fellow students organized. Comments welcome Smiley Will try and put more pictures up when I've set up my exhibition after next week.

My Suit of "Armour":

Fashion Show Pictures:

By the way, the bra I'm wearing as a top in the fashion show photos is a bra that I covered in black liquid latex Smiley

Thanks for all the comments, I passed my "pathway" phase of my foundation, and this was one of the projects, so good enough for me Smiley

Good job! The pants look good, how do they fit when you move around?

Haha thank you, well not going to lie they were rather tight and I couldn't sit down that easily, but it was the best I could do with the amount of fabric I had and I was lucky I'm fairly small haha! They were comfortable enough to walk in though Smiley

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *Deconstruct-Reconstruct* College Project on: May 10, 2011 11:35:56 AM
So I'm at college specialising in Fashion on my Foundation, and we did a project called deconstruct-reconstruct. We bought "unsellable" items donated from a charity shop (up to 3 items) and had to change them into something completely new. We were also told to try and use as much of the already existing parts (seams, fastenings etc.) as possible without doing something really minimal.
Being my usual self I decided to avoid all teachers help and see how far I could push myself on my own (a slightly delusional idea possibly...).
Okay boring bits over, basically I bought a womens blazer (size 14) and a mens shirt. Currently I'm obsessed with menswear as womenswear, and a little bit of androgyny. So here's what I made:

Sorry there's no pic of the back - the photo was taken by photography students and I had no real chance to take my own pics.
Before pics (scuse silly not awake faces):

Basically I made a pair of trousers from the blazer (no pattern, the panels are made from the lining, and that's the original lapels and button), I resized the shirt (shortened it and brought it in... a lot), and took off the sleeves. and added pin tucks. The wasitcoat is made out of the lining of the blazer and some of the leftover shirt material. I also made a tie and a cuff from some of the other pieces left over from the shirt and blazer.
Lemme know what you think Smiley
