the tailored jacket project

so currently i've been working on a tailoring project the project brief was to create a tailored piece inspired by an historical iconic tailored garment but make it modern by combing this with trend research   for autumn / winter 13 / 14.  i looked at WGSN to find out what the newest trend would be. I've been making an inspired garment from the iconic teddy boys jacket combined with the trend of mystery for the this trend i looked into surrealist photography and took inspiration from how the photographers used reveal and conceal in there images to create a surreal effect. i took this reveal and conceal concept to combine with the teddy boy look. i've been doing different design variations and testing silhouettes on the stand. with in two weeks i will create the final garment and fully style an photograph the finished outfit.

until next time
