Year 2 Identity – FINAL HAND IN

May 12, 2015

Year 2! You are so nearly there! Keep working hard, and pushing forward. Your hand-ins are next week on your respective tutorial days. Your hand in time is 10am, you will need to bring your garments in clearly named garment bags, your portfolio – also clearly named, and any other supporting material. PLEASE NOTE – Groups A,B,C to hand in in room G201 and Group D in room G214C. DO NOT BE LATE – if any work is received beyond 10.30 this will be considered a late submission Your final submission requirements are as follows:


  • Research / Mood borads
  • Design Development (Sampling – if you wish)
  • Design work
  • 6 Look line up – Coloured
  • 6 illustrations in regards to each look, with specs and fabric samples
  • Fully styled and appropriate photoshoot


  • on a hanger (one look to one garment bag please, clearly named)

Remember how important you portfolio is, give time to think about layout and how your project is coming together in a professional way. The more detailed you are in each category, the more we can see you explaining your process. Do not rush you illustrations, and highly detailed specs are expected. You should have most of this work from your formative, think about how you are compiling it together.

REMEMBER you design work, line up and illustrations should be drawn differently. Your design work is what you have been sketching as part of your 50 designs, your line up is a little more creative but still readable as a whole collection and your illustrations are a chance to you get as creative as you can in your drawing and representation with your looks. If you are struggling with your photoshoot, note that you can shoot shell garments (ie without lining etc)  – it is a chance to see it on a body and for you to take some artistic direction of your work – sometimes simple shoots can be the best. Work it in your favour.

GOOD LUCK – I am extremely excited to see all your work come together. Keep going, summer is nearly in sight! Kiran x
