First year textiles and fashion fifties collaboration

"The post-war period was a witness to groundbreaking changes in fashions, materials and process. The onset of a new youth culture was beginning to effect design philosophy, a greater level of freedom emerged as the 'teenager' was born. The changes were reflected in education as principles of Bauhaus, minimalism and modernity took effect." 

For our first project we were put in to groups to create a screen printed repeat inspired by the fifties which was then passed over to the Fashion course who made something out of it. The block shapes of colour were printed on using stencils and the black outlines were exposed onto a screen from cut outs placed onto a kodatrace. 

My groups' repeat for the fashion collaboration
This is just a little post for the exhibition which finally went up today and it was lovely to see how they turned out, the prints are all quite similar but I guess that's what you get from a first project forced in to groups kind of situation! I'm quite proud of us because they do look lovely but there's something great about seeing old work and thinking how much everyone has progressed in such a short period of time. My first year of university is nearly coming to an end which makes me excited for the second year but also a bit sad that it's going so fast, soon I'll be home for summer and I can't wait to be able to get my camera out and do some more lifestyle-y posts.
