Republic Brief Mood Boards

Shop Report
Trend/Mood/Colour Board

We were given our brief for Republic. We have been asked to design 4 outfits for people to wear travelling that go go from rainforest, to beach, to bar.
I want to look at multifunctional clothes, with a slouchy silhouette but with an angular print. Using bright colours mixed with nudes. The fabrics may be coated to be waterproof and wearble in all occasions, but always thinking about the weather of the location such as extreme heat, rain and cold. Can the outfits have double linings that could be removed and jumpsuits that can be tops and trousers. I want to consider clever packing as you need your bag to be light but have enough clothing. Could the clothes be easy clean? or dry quick?

Final Print

This is my final print but i think i need to brighten it up to really embrace colour within my collection and maybe bring in some other bright colours, such as blue (energy) and purple (artichoke), as my collection is quite earthy and maybe looks like a sustainable collection.

Final Coat

My final coat. I am really pleased but i wish i had put in some inside pockets as i do not think my outside pockets are actually useable as they aren't safe. Also i think that i could have removed the back seam so i have learnt that it is so important that i consider the whole garment and think about it as 360 degrees. i also think i should have made my collar bigger as it would have covered the zip better and been more of a statement. But this can be moved into other garments so i think it has been a good research stage.
