You guys have to check out this fashion film!
This was created by two 3rd year BA (Hons) Fashion Photography students and using garments from this year’s graduate Fashion Design and Performance Sportswear Design students.
‘Arranged, shot and produced in under two weeks, Falmouth Fashion Photography students Lucy Hawes and Eve McGovren present to you an A-Z of Falmouth Graduate designers. Practicing fashion film for the past two years, this is their final farewell film before graduating and heading to the big city. Third of a list of short films they have produced as a partnership, they have formed their own mini production company ‘ELU’. In preparation of the up coming fashion show, this film gives you a taste of fresh talent to leave Falmouth this year. Watch this space.’
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
