MAKING COLLARS!!

 

 

 

Thought I would post the collars that I made last week in class! I first made a mandarin or a Nehru collar. This is just the stand of the collar that I had previously drafted.

This is my peter pan collar that I drew up from scratch. Obviously neither are attached to a garment so you’ll have to use your imagination a bit! 😛

I also made a conventional shirt collar last term which was attached to the shirt I made!

I’m loving the results that I’m getting in my pattern cutting classes and I’m making garments and completing techniques that I haven’t done before, however sometimes class can be a bit slow! We are at all different levels of abilities and this can be frustrating for everyone sometimes! I do wish we were put into sets as I believe it would benefit both people like me who have been sewing for a few years now or are more confident and those who are starting out from scratch and need more time on focus on other areas. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t all have a great time in our Friday lessons! Hope you enjoyed 🙂 would love to see other people’s attempts at these collars!!

UNIVERSITY WORK – BRICOLAGE PROJECT!

Had such fun with my most recent project! With the title of ‘Bricolage’ and the brief to make a piece per-person in a group of 4 and then to style and shoot the pieces to resemble a magazine, we were very excited. I think this is one of my strong points, and if you read my blog, you can see my previous pieces of work where I have used recycled or unexpected materials to create a garment or accessory piece.We were quite pleased with the outcome and were trying to emulate the edginess and grunge styling used in Dazed and Confused… So here are the pictures with the lovely Catherine to model!!

I made this piece – the crown using fake nails!!

Hope you enjoyed!!

And here was one of the songs that we listened to while shooting that gave us inspiration!

DECKED OUT: FASHION PLAYING CARDS!

I found these fab Fashion cards by Connie Lim! I found them on the internet and they are fierce, surreal and stunning! She is obviously very talented!

I love that even the hair, or fabric or headscarf has club or hearts etc included in it in this piece!

MY DAY AT UNIVERSITY – DIGITAL PRINT AND SCREEN PRINTING INDUCTION!!

I had such an inspiring and interesting day today at uni. We had to participate in this induction for, from what I can see, our state of the art digital print and screen printing facilities here at UCA Epsom.
After getting to know the basics, we were given a task to create a collage using Photoshop and prints. My group of three came up with this idea…

Here is our work in progress!

It was great fun, and we had loads of ideas!  We were primarily looking through the images found in this fab book!

Here is our final print coming out!!

We were very pleased with it!
Hhadd some great music to listen to as well…
Purity Ring – Grandloves (album)

We then moved onto the screen printing process!!

We had to first clean the screens, then cover the screens with UV sensitive solution. We then cut up our positive photograph and placed it underneath the screen and exposed both to the UV light. We then printed through the screen to create our prints using magenta ink!!

My final outcome!!

As an experiment, we then printed over the top of the previous groups black screen print with our magenta print!

Love the results! What a great day!

HELLO EVERYONE!! UPDATE ALERT.

As anyone who reads my blog may know, I exactly blog on a regular basis however much I love it or want to so I thought I would update everyone on what I’ve been posting recently elsewhere…

 

I still am very dedicated to IFB and recently joined the Next Blogger Network… so here are both of my profiles:

My name is oliviajohnson94 on Next Blogger Network

And by IFB profile link is: http://heartifb.com/members/oj94/profile/

My original Tumblr account where I post any work that I’ve done that’s slightly less serio than this blog is: oliviajohnson94.tumblr.com

And my Instagram is: instagram.com/oliviajohnson94 – which I do actually have posted onto my Tumblr!

My Pinterest account is: http://www.pinterest.com/OliviaJohnson94/ where I post strictly images that are related to my Fashion BS course

And my Polyvore account is: http://oliviaemilyjohnson.polyvore.com/

 

I’ve recently created another Tumblr account where I just post ‘stuff’ that I love, that inspires me, that is funny and quotes from my favourite pieces of literature. It’s a bit more fun if you like the sort of blog that is almost purely other people’s images and not being funny, it it makes me sigh with happiness when I look through all of the images so I would highly recommend it!

 

Hope you enjoy 🙂 xx
