Students start this unit by completing a detail product analysis to gain understating of the product they are to produce; a drawstring or shopper bag. They are then introduced to a range of new techniques such as fabric dying, CAD CAM, screen printing, embellishing and overlocking. Sampling each technique allows them to then produce a fully detailed, workable final design idea. In this textiles rotation students are particularly encouraged to experiment and test ideas, enabling them to produce very individual outcomes. To help them manage their own projects students are also required to complete detailed manufacturing plans to aid time management.Once complete students bags are then tested for function and evaluated using 3rd party feedback.
Students acquire knowledge in colour theory, typography and the use of imagery in branding. They analyse exciting fashion branding and produce their own in Photoshop for a professional outcome. |
