Here is a range of work I have produced since starting my foundation course. The first three pieces of work is from a recent Lisbon trip with Brookes in which I was inspired by the cobbles but also the fish scales from the port. I've started using collage in the ideas sheet to generate ideas for textile design for garments, but also the garments structure.
I think the links with the industry on the course is really important, as this is where we will really start learning what it is like to work in fashion. I am also very interested in other cultures and the history of fashion, which I know is covered on the course. Overall I chose this course because I like the structure, content but also the facilities. I also know that I could very easily spend the next three years of my life in Manchester, which I think is important, because with fashion you should feel inspired by your surroundings.
