Fashion Design
Project Title Modernity
Section 1: Review (Approx 150 words)
I am currently progressing through an Art and Design Foundation course and focusing my work onto the fashion pathway, as this is the subject I have applied to at university, and I feel my strengths lie within this area too, along with my personal preferences.

Though I am studying fashion, I like to use media such as film, fine art and modern day issues to influence, and within my work, thus I result in work that has a different stance on fashion from different angles and contains contextual meanings within the work. For example, my most recent project was inspired by both the fine artist Sarah Lucas, and Body Dysmorphia Disorder, this combination helped my development of ideas, and made my final piece more interesting and appealing. I feel my personal strengths lie within illustration and the process of designing to the final piece. My personal weaknesses I feel are organising and prioritising my time efficiently.

I would like to further develop my skills in different forms of presenting my work for example, film, projecting work, or installations.

 

Section 2: Project Concept (approx 250 words)
In this project I want to focus on modernity and illustrate how arising issues and humanity’s way of life (growing cities, littering, pollution, global warming, nuclear waste) are affecting nature. I want to present these issues through contrasting and juxtaposing ‘nature’ with the ‘man-made’ together through textile means, such as using silicone with silk, or litter I have found with pure wool. By using methods like this I am showing how humanity and our way of life is effecting nature in a negative way.

I have been looking at fashion designers Nien Lam and Sue Ngo, they collaborated and produced a collection of clothing that warns us of the risks of our heavy pollution lifestyle. Ngo and Lam came up with the concept of warning signs, a visualisation of the pollution that exists invisibly all around us. In the presence of carbon monoxide, the warning signs subtly change colour from a healthy pink to an ominous grey. They then created a short film, documenting the way it changes. This way of working visually, with lights and film and the context behind it really fascinates me and I find it really entreating, thus I will research the designers, lights and film more thoroughly and see if I can incorporate this into my work too. Another artist, John Sabraw uses toxic sludge that has formed from acid drainage from coal mines in Ohio river. He uses the sludge as a media to paint and print with. He has done this as a protest to raise awareness on the subject matter and help restore the streams and in the process, turn the pollution into art. Again this way of working, using the source as the pollution within the work inspires me and would like to think about ways I can to try this.

Section 3: Evaluation (approx 100 words)
I will constantly evaluate my work throughout my project to ensure I am meeting my initial intentions. I will complete this by using processes such as tutorials with my tutors, peer feedback, referring back to my proposal to ensure I am staying on track. I may also use methods such as surveys and questionnaires to get feedback from a wider audience. Finally, when I have completed my project I will present the main pieces in an exhibition for the public to view. I will also set myself weekly targets
