so my cubicle so far comes complete with a shelf, curtain, table, chair and a large piece of paper folded to form a ‘wall pocket’ for scrap material
It has within it a clip on black veil I’m working on, the top of which is a bow and which has a newspaper rose and will have depressing words embroidered through it in wool. I sort of developed it from the idea of the advert about mental health where people remove their masks as the end of the day and reveal how they really feel.
The idea with this is that it is there, trailing after the person. It is a part of them, but not all of them.
I made a fashion mood board to predict the fashion of spring/summer 2014 and it adorns one wall.
I love cross stitch so along the top of my cubicle there are some of my small samples. As well as (pictured below) some of my 3d sculpture samples.
Randomly stuck to one wall is an experiment in couch and stitching ribbon to cotton.
as well as a random monoprint and some crocheted granny squares attached by left over thread.
The Paper sculpture is based off the idea of atomic structure and when perfected will hopefully not only look like it does above but actually stay where it has been placed instead of falling down.
printing making samples also line the walls to add a splash of colour
the shelf store my wire work trials (including my investigation into fluffy wire!)
Finally I have a large pencil drawn outline of a model pose for fashion drawing with the head levels marked as a quick reference guide while working. (I stuck on a paper witch hat as Halloween is near)
I’ve been researching photographers and fashion photographers. I really enjoy a kitsch vintage style and so in the process of my research stumbled on these gems
Cecil Beaton for Vogue 1940s and Marisa Berenson by Richard Avedon 1966
Richard Avedon for Harpers Bazaar 1957 and Veronica Hamel as Winter 1965
Part of my course involves fashion drawing. It is highly enjoyable however I do find it hard to predict trends and see the patterns just yet. We have to attempt to predict the trends for spring/summer 2014 seeing as I dress like a female Sheldon Cooper…
…this is so far proving difficult.
plus finding magazines with images of models is somewhat difficult if your idea of a good read is star trek so it took some significant rummaging to find a H&M magazine to cut up. There are a few magazines in class but i’d be reluctant to approach those with scissors!
