Automated Robotic Methods are given a human touch in this industrial look that realizes the beauty of Machinery.

My main aim is to develop and extend my specialist subject skills and realize my creative potential through personal research, experimentation and communication of ideas using specialist art and design media

After finally realizing i wanted to focus more on the Styling side of things regarding my FMP, i decided this was appropriate as this is the part i find most exciting and wanted my end of college project to be an enjoyable experience. Initially i thought tonal blues, browns and metallics and 100% wanted to customize the garments used in my photographs. i wanted the styling and photography both to be my own work.

I toyed with the idea of using Laser cutting, leather, treated denim and raw edges on my garments, but definitely wanted them to be made with a ‘D.I.Y’ attitude and ‘London street’ target market

ImageDuring the Process i will create and Re-style a number of garments for my final photoshoot, using various materials some shop bought, some found, but mostly recycled from old machinery and engines

With the first mention of my end of college FMP (final major project) it was a clever decision that my first initial starting place was London, London was the place to be to refresh my memory, renew my mind and learn new things regarding whats happening with fabrics and what the current/ new trends are on the London streets.

I visited many Gallery’s whilst i was in London but my favorites were The Courtauld Gallery at Somerset House, Where i viewed the ‘Becoming Picasso’ Exhibition and then the ICA where i viewed Juergen Tellers ‘WOO’ Photography exhibition, the wide range of fashion, portraiture and mostly nude pictures were impressive. Also very shocking  when a  print the size of a billboard of Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, completely nude  Dominated a plain white room with nothing more than a women standing in the corner as a sort of security,  i considered his photography to be absolutely beautiful and was stunned by the amount of designers and labels hes photographed for. later browsing the street trends on brick lane and collecting a few fabric samples from SOHO i was feeling excited to review my research and further explore using WGSN to secure a clear theme, also what area i wanted to base the project, with it been design or styling.

Below ive posted a few pictures from my trip!
