In the midst of running last minute errands, picking up lovely belated birthday pressies (thanks Jay, Mich, and Gina), planning imminent summer events, and packing my soon-to-be overweight suitcase, I found myself oddly relaxed to the point I tense up again. Yes, I know that sounds ridiculous but I'm generally an anxious person which actually helps deal with stress and allows me to be more productive work wise. So when all of a sudden I'm free, I feel a bit.. lost? Perhaps it's simply post-school blues or what not, but I'm sure it'll all dissipate once I head home in 2 days and distract myself with shiny new things and spoil myself with good food, ie. proper sushi! As I mentally prepare my routine replies to the inevitable questions my family and friends would undoubtedly ask like "How was studying in London?" or "What is it like to do fashion?" etc. which I slightly dread after repeating (even slightly varying just to keep it fresh) the same general answer over ehh... 87 times, allow me not to bore you with coffee banter and move on to more 'enlightening' topics.
So hopefully before you go scrolling down, just for your information, no fabric was used for this project that you're about to see, and even though we were given a three week period (actually a bit less due to the Queens Jubilee taking up Monday & Tuesday) for the entire project, sourcing/preparing materials and filming/editing took up an entire week in the beginning and the end, so these six garments were completed in less than 6-7 days. We chose to keep the shapes and silhouettes simple as the concept of the film and what the individual garments represent was more important. The film will be uploaded right after some secondary re-editing, so for the mean time...
Leslie and I proudly present our final project of the year - "BUMP"
|BA fashion first year's final crit... notice our matching presentation ensembles?|
|the top is knitted entirely out of candy necklaces, and is surprisingly heavy!|
BEHIND THE SCENES/THE MAKING OF 'BUMP'
|the three tone 'candy' hair was made out of three wigs and individually cut and carefully layered to create this look|
|extensions were used around the eyes along the blue bop to evoke sadness as they look like tears|
|no worries of getting it wet (the material is completely waterproof!)|
