It was barely the third month into one of our batches for the 6 months Womens Wear programme and we were just about to get into drafting some really complicated patterns. .
To spice up the learning process, we thought to take a break from pattern drafting and engage the batch in a fun runway project.
This was simply a means to encourage the class, and let them see how much they had already achieved in little time.
They were asked to create a functional collection. . Any theme they desire, any colour scheme, whatever designs they choose but it had to be garments they could make by themselves. . .
The catch? They were to showcase the collection to a live audience at the Africa Fashion and Beauty Expo at Bespoke Centre Lagos on the 30th of July 2016. .
They were pretty excited, they loved the challenge and that was all we needed to make the project a reality.
They got to work!!! In the midst of it all, we caught them unawares, took some pictures and this is a view of what went down. .
(.Some of the photos are a bit dark but. . . at least you get to see everything raw and unedited…)
The Production Process:
Let’s go backstage!!!
[Back Stage was crazy, so rowdy with no space for pictures. . . However, we still got some for you *wink:]
Now the collection in detail. . .
WHAT DO YOU THINK??
