Our Year 1 School of Fashion & Textile students have completed a collaborative project, exploring what is meant by equality, diversity and inclusion. As well as the implications of these concepts in creative practice.
Team Margiela’s project focused on the inaccessibility of clothing for disabled people, resulting in the creation of three pieces- a shirt with a velcro fastening, a tie with snap fasteners and trousers with a knee-high zip.
The second group, Team Wek, used the style of a modern riding jacket as their base, but reimagined to be worn on the ‘street’ instead of a horse. Ralph Lauren’s signature blazers and traditional riding jackets worn by jockeys was a focal point of their research and design.
Team Styles explored camp fashion and the way it transcends gender and sexuality norms in todays society. They drew inspiration from 80s power suits and Victorian corsets to form their final piece.
