Tutti Fruitti Fashion Show

When I was at Cardonald College we had a Fashion Show at the end of second year.  It was held at Glasgow Fruit Market (many years ago now).  It was a lot of fun and really exciting to see all your hard work come together and strut down the catwalk :) 

Before I show you any fashion show pictures I thought I would talk you through my concept for my designs.  So my project was called Tutti Fruitti, which had a lot of fun colours, sweets, presents, medals and patterns.  I used a lot of flower drawings to create one of my final designs.

I also had a look at the colours in medals and had a go at making my own, I think they look really cute.  However I didn't use them in my final design.

I even had a go at making my own fabric using weave.  The results were really beautiful and colourful but it just took far too long to do.  The weave was done on a bit of cardboard then the ends tied together so that it wouldn't unravel.  I used to do it on the bus home, needless to say I got a few funny looks.

After I had chosen my favourite drawings and fabric samples, I started to sketch out lots of different ideas for dresses and coats.

Eventually I decided on a really fancy coat with a intricate collar, with a plain dress underneath and a really fun patterned dress with lots of ribbon and colour.

Eventually I had finished my 2 dresses and fitted them onto my models, who were my sister Dawn and my friend Lianne.

Taa dahhh! Here are my 2 gorgeous models on the catwalk in my designs.  Lianne is on the left and Dawn on the right.  I have a few more pictures of other students designs and more samples of my work in the Gallery section of my blog, so please go and have a look.
