Year 2 Summer Project + Menswear Brief

June 13, 2016

Year 2,

Those who came to the briefing today, it was good to meet you and talk about
the expectations of the new year. Those who didn’t, this is disappointing. I
understand that some of you have gone back home over summer, but in future
please email me and let me know if you can not make it.

I am attaching the summer brief below. All 3 points need to be covered and the
work is due back on your first briefing in the new term. Attached below also is
the project outline for the menswear project which you should also be
working on over summer.

To those who did not attend – I mostly communicate via the blog, you need to
be checking this over the summer months. Your timetable will be posted up on
there in August.

You need to be back in London for the final week in September, for your
briefing and term to start first weeks of October. Details of this will
follow in due course.

KEEP CHECKING THE BLOG!
In the meantime, have an enjoyable and restful summer. I am looking forward
to seeing all your work when you are back.

I hope you are all well and happy.

Some of you have asked when to pick up the tech folder from me. You can come to pick it up from next Wednesday afternoon onwards. They will be in the same box you handed in under the table in G214c.

Could you also come to pick up all your stuff in your locker/ studio before the summer? We will have a big clear-out in summer so anything left we will throw away or donate. Make sure you do not leave anything behind.

If any of you are free this week, please come to the studio to give hand to the third year students needing help. The dead line is 2:30pm this Thursday so anyone who has time before please please come!
