Rebecca Jayne Taylor; Falmouth Fashion Show 2013

This year, Falmouth University decided to open the 3rd year fashion show with a blast from the past. Falmouth Graduate, Rebecca Jayne Taylor opened the show with a sensational (and brand new) 10 piece collection which combines high fashion with performance sportswear.
“A lot or research went into the Art Deco period and I looked at symmetrical patterns and directional lines. The bold colours that were used and the geometric patterns formed a large part of the inspiration behind the collection.
Working with the waste and surplus materials provided by Gore-Tex meant that I was constantly having to improvise on the design works in terms of pattern construction and colour. It’s not like getting a ready made piece of fabric from the factory that you can cut your pattern from.
Using the laminate material meant that I was able to create functional and technical garments. The fact that I was able to adapt the way in which I applied and heat taped the seams gave me the opportunity to produce designs that had a strong visual effect and the array of colours that Gore-Tex provide added to the overall aesthetic of the collection.
The laminate materials are very easy to work with and it is the technical properties of the Gore-Tex material that attracted me to this “Up-Cycle” project as I was able to be extremely creative and produce functional waterproof garments.” – Rebecca Jayne Taylor

#FalmouthFashionShow2013: Round Up

A nice and simple post showing a few pieces from each designer from this years Falmouth Fashion Show 2013 .
I thoroughly enjoyed this years show and so I thought I would let you guys see a range of looks from each designer to get a glimpse in to the fashion department of Falmouth. There was a really strong mixture of designs, concepts and colours which proved popular with the audience. There was so much variety from each designer which means that there were no two collections were the same… Job well done Falmouth !

All looks are by 3rd year Fashion and Performance Sportswear Design students at Falmouth University
