No 5.

The image I took from my research to experiment with darker colours, is a piece Harvey Nichols, commissioned Heatherwick studio to produce an installation to celebrate London Fashion Week 1997. I have fallen in love with the work this company produces, one of their more recent pieces being the Olympic Cauldron, for the London 2012 games, if you are unfamiliar with their work check it out it’s amazing.
So using an image of the piece called Autumn Intrusion to experiment with colours on the body, also including design specs of the garment, which can be altered to the wearers’ personal tastes.
Using an image from my research, this one taken from the art exhibition Beyond Infinity by Serge Salat and overlaying a fashion design to experiment with colours, also including design specs of the garment, to show where it can be changed from a “all-in-one” to button up sleeves, which gives the wearer the option to change how this outfit could look depending on their personal style.
Design specs and illustrations for Water of Life collection, so starting at the beginning no.1 is a coat with abstract frill on front side seam, made in bright blue cotton, with a corset and trousers in a pleated silk fabric in a mushroom colour, next to that is a silky trapeze top, with a high-waisted pencil skirt made in ombre dyed knitted wool. The third is a double breasted long grey wool coat with white ‘frills’ on the side of the button band (would be made as out fit no.5) the fourth, a simple dress that buttons at the front and has a 3 tier bustle built into the back, made in bright blue cotton, with no.5 is a shorts and jacket (with a built-in bustle at the back) combo in ombre dyed knitted wool, with a silk trapeze top in the pleated silk underneath and finally a grey suit with white “frills” along the length of the body, (which would be made as outfit no.6).
