The Jacket Project

THE JACKET PROJECT

........................................................................................................................................

I learnt a lot from the jacket project. It was fascinating finding out all the different parts that have to come together to make a tailored jacket. When dissecting it I learnt of all the stitching, overlocking, lining and interlining that all help to form the final piece. I feel that the jacket i have created says a lot about me as a designer and the things that I believe in.

LINDA VALKEMAN

the 2010 F/W collection saw hand made materials mixed with futuristic shapes. We saw patchwork clothes with frayed ends and large visible seams. the models walked the runway in clog-like shoes. 

The use of large stitching and showing seams is something i would like to incorporate in my own designs. The look created here is grungy chic. I love the complimentary faded colours as well as the different thickness of fabric constantly being combined.

MIGUEL ADROVER

his  come back to fashion showed the runway clothing turned inside out and upside down but still impeccably cut.

he’s presenting the new collection as a manifesto for change within the fashion industry. “People are too focused on the business side. And on the creative side, there is no more time to think,” he says, voicing a concern shared by many, as the big fashion houses continue to burn through talent—and designers are compelled to ­deliver more collections per year. “It’s not healthy, and it’s not ­sustainable. So I tried to find a different way of doing things. A camel-hair blazer was cleverly reconfigured as a pencil skirt; a floral bedsheet became an elegant gown.

FASHION REVOLUTION

On 24 April 2013, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue.

Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough. In 60 countries around the world, tens of thousands of people participated in the first Fashion Revolution Day on 24 April 2014, turning an item of clothing #insideout and asking the question: Who Made Your Clothes?

Join us on 24 April 2015.

Together we will use the power of fashion to catalyse change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain.

 

I found this so inspiring when dissecting my jacket i began to ask myself these questions.

Who made this?

I have always thought that equality in the fashion industry is important and is something i will always help to raise awareness of. The results from this project were amazing, and just looking at the images of people wearing their clothes inside out was very inspiring for the process of my designs.
