Final Fashion Collection

Project 2013-07-08 01:47:42 +1200

I am Jessica Gleeson, I am 21 years old and I have known that I was going to study Fashion my whole life.


The next 13 weeks are going to be the most crucial of my life so far.  

This f
inal collection for my Bachelor of Design (Fashion) at Otago Polytechnic is the culmination of everything I have learnt in my studies, personal inspirations, skills and a lot of work. The collection is based on a strong woman, with an emphasis on modern tailoring, line and fit, a love of natural fibres and fabrics, consisting of a minimum of 5 outfits (which will be a range of separates, currently looking at around 13 garments). With a print being designed for the collection. A budget of $4000, to purchase final fabrics, cover printing costs, footwear, toiling costs and enlist the help of a professional photographer and models. 

Being a fashion student is a very stressful undertaking, there are never enough hours in the day or dollars in the bank. It can be very disheartening to design a collection and then having to sacrifice elements to be able to afford it. I need your help to be able to make my dreams a reality and not have to cut any corners.

All help is appreciated, thanks for helping my vision come true.

FINAL FEW DAYS

20/08/2013 at 12:29 AM

Hi everyone, as we approach the last few days of pledging I am in the midst of toiling the garments. The final 5 outfits have been whittled down from the 10 outfits designed, this was a very hard task! Lots of drawing and redrawing late at night. 

The toiles are trucking along nicely, we have 3 weeks till final toile check where all the garments must be completed to sample standard. 3 weeks, 13 garments. It's going to be a busy time.

To everyone that has pledged so far, thank you so, so much. Fabric orders must be confirmed in the next 6 days so the pressure is on. 

If you haven't already pledged then it's not too late, we still have 4 days to reach the target! WE CAN DO IT!!
