The Final AW Moodboard
... It's all about unexpected colours & colour combinations ...
The next stage is looking through and gathering all the garments and overstock fabric I think could fit well with the theme & mood. From here I design & choose the shapes/styles that I want to go ahead with. If I'm tweaking a design detail or trying a new shape altogether I'll do some sampling which would be drafting the pattern or tweaking a current one and toiling to make sure that it works. For the first A/W accessories collection I've focused on updating some of my key items including the Bucket Hat, the Scrunchie Handle Bag & new Mask options.
Then its onto making some of the final pieces, which is the best and sometimes scariest part. Upcycling is still at the forefront of how I'm making my collections with the introduction of some new and exciting sustainable trims. Below is the making of one of the new Corduroy bucket hats.
The new bucket hat is made of 100% Cotton Corduroy upcycled from an unused and unworn shirt and has a new lace up tie detail. I've spent a lot of time researching more sustainable trim options and really happy to be implementing what I found into this collection, the new hat comes with an eco elastic cord, made of 40% organic cotton & 60% Natural rubber, making it biodegradable, recyclable and plastic free.
