my final collection at uni
My collection was based on crystals and capturing there textures and colour. I really enjoyed the tie dye method and felt that it captured details from crystals. From playing with colour and textures i decided to combine drawings of crystals with the tie dye textures to create different patterns. This collection was based for a teenage market and i created 3 final wallpapers a 3 fabric lengths.
This was my final hand in at uni a lot of work but so worth while.
This was my final presentation at new designers. New designers is for graduates to show off there designs and work and get noticed as a lot of companies attend the event. It was such a great experience and if anyone gets the chance i really recommend that you do it. Its a great way to make connections and get chatting to people. Its also good to meet other recent graduates and see there amazing work. Let me know what you guys think xx
So now that i have graduated and are done with university i have decided to start a new blog as i stopped posting on my old one through out uni in my second year. The work load was to much.
But i am back and pleased to say the hard work paid off. I graduated with a 2:1 in textiles design and am very pleased. I went to london metropolitan university as i decided to stay in london as my family, boyfriend and friends all were close by. Some people prefer to move away and have the party and study lifestyle but i wasn't much of a party girl i just stuck to the designing.
Doing a textiles course is pretty hard balancing sketchbook work, designs and outcomes with essay and a dissertation at the end however if you have a passion for textiles it is 100% enjoyable and you will get through. On my course you learnt a range of skills knit, print, stitch and weave. I decided to go into print design for interiors but also do love fashion. The course allows you to go in to fashion or interiors which you can also learn skills for both and even design for both. If you have any questions about the course please comment bellow.
Graduation day was very exciting however i wasn't very well on the day but i pushed through. It was so nice to see the day come around and finally have the sense of achievement as sometimes when times were stressful it was hard to see this day. I think walking up on stage was the most scary part. However i had a lovely day and had a lovely meal a Browns restaurant after the ceremony.
I would just like to say thank you to all my family my boyfriend and friends for putting up with me and supporting my through this time. I couldn't have done it without them!
