So basically my class at college got assigned a project called "Alice Dress" which was basically to design a dress for a girl called Alice who is the lead singer in a band from Dundee called 'The Hazy Janes'. This was such a fun project and i am really enjoying making the dress. however it is taking longer than was expected but its so much fun learning all the different techniques and skills needed to make a dress to standard. So heres the designs i did and the final chosen design which i am now almost finished making. I will soon upload a picture of the finished product. Its small but a bit pixelated, sorry i will try and get this sorted and hopefully show it off better soon.

The chosen design

My class all got sent out to do research on businesses that would help us reflect on the work we are doing now and were we could go from when we get our grades and degrees. Even though i didn't make it to the meetings, my class mates gave me notes and pictures of what all happened and it was all very interesting, these two pictures are of the businesses Isolated Heroes & Neo Design. just shows that if you really put the work in it all ends up worth it in the end. It proves that you can still be very successful even if you are not a major fashion brand name. Kirsty,X
