New Year 2 Menswear FSH2300 Initial brief

New Year 2,

Please find a link to the initial brief for your menswear project in the new term. Those of you who came to the briefing you will have received this information already. Those who didn’t (and we know who you are); you missed vital information. You need to be turning up to your first design lesson with an idea of who your muse is and with all your initial research.

You will also be receiving your timetable in the coming weeks before term starts – so watch this space!

Looking forward to seeing you in the new term.

Intern Needed!

July 22, 2015

Hi All! Hope you’re having a fab summer!!

I need a part time intern for the next couple of months! Working with me on a new project, mostly sewing, in my studio in Walthamstow. Travel paid and lovely lunches provided. A chance for a decent sewer to become a flippin’ brilliant one!! There’s also a chance for other skills to be honed, such as CAD and pattern cutting if you are interested in those. Email me on

Fairly flexible about days and times.

Dear New Year 2 and 3,

Hope you are all well and enjoying the summer break!

Here is your summer project brief. Please download the pdf document and read the information carefully.

Your requirements of this brief are as follows:

An A3 portfolio landscape – loose sheets bound or secured together including:

  • Research
  • Design development
  • Design Work
  • Sampling (in a box or photographed and used in development)
  • 6 look line up
  • 6 illustrations with fabric samples and specs

This portfolio should be completed to a high standard and used to create a book that consolidates your research and your thinking. You should be creating a narrative within your work to show your journey from your initial imagery and development to how this has influenced your design and sampling decisions. Always be pushing for the best of your ideas and remember you are designing beautiful, interesting and considered clothing. The inspiration and references page is just that – inspiration! Use these references as a starting point and grow your ideas from this. Be original!

This project is compulsory for both year 2 and 3 and will form part of your formative assessment for your autumn modules. Also please remember this is a a LIVE project – this is a competition run by Fashion Awareness Direct (FAD) in which successful projects are put forward to show at LFW. We have over the years had successful winners of this competition winning up to £1000

This project will be due in on your first day back! A register will be taken of the hand in – NO EXCUSES

Please circulate this information to the rest of your classmates!

Good Luck, enjoy and explore!

Press Show Garment Collection

June 24, 2015

Hope you are all feeling a bit more relaxed now!

It’s that time to collect your final collections. We will be doing this over three days next week.

Fashion Design will need to see myself on Monday 29th June – Wednesday 1st July between 12-3pm to collect your garments and sign for them. They cannot be taken without seeing me first! If I’m not in G201, I will be around the studios/office. Please email me to let me know which day you will be collecting.

If garments and accessories are not collected by Wednesday 1st July, they will be binned!!! The studios must be completely clear by this date and we cannot hang on to things. If you are not able to collect yourself, please get a friend to do so for you, and let me know who this is.

See you next week!
