Presenting My Fall/Winter 2015 Collection!

WELCOME TO (1)

As Finals season draws to a much-needed close, I am so excited to share with you all my final presentation to my Introduction to Fashion course.

My assignment was to create a line for Fall/Winter 2015 and to create a pattern on muslin for one of the looks.  Here is a compilation of my sketches, my muslin, and the final presentation boards.

The most difficult part was starting to decide what aspect of my target consumer’s life was I going to focus on.  My target consumer was a woman in her mid 20’s who just received a promotion and is trying to imitate the I-have-it-all-together-and-I’m-so-luxe look.  So I went for the day to night and work clothes segment and I believe that I pinpointed her style well, don’t you think?  Now, the inspiration for this collection wasn’t too bad.  I’m a big fan of architecture, so going off of the geometric trend that I saw in Spring/Summer 2015, I implemented the use of architecture (based on the buildings I saw in Washington, D.C. during my last visit) in this line.  My professor had us create collages of non-clothing objects and arrange them on a croqi so I often peeked back at that collage for inspiration.  I tried to keep clean lines throughout the line as well as implement the use of cut-outs to show the geometry in the line.  Although I think that some of my designs do need a bit more work, the line that I was able to come up with more or less is what I probably would show, if I had a show for the Fall.  Throughout my line, there are a great deal of high collars and turtleneck sweaters — I believe that they will be coming back into trend.  Mark my words, the turtleneck is going to be back and it’s going to be more luxurious than ever!

Creating this line cost me a great deal of sleepless nights, blood, sweat and tears — I’m relieved to have finished this project.  Although this is definitely not my best work, I am delighted at the results of this collection.  Hope you like it!

P.S. Have some feedback? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
