CREATIVE PRACTICE ELIZABETH LAYTE
STRUCTURALISM Given the brief title, â€˜White shirtâ€™, I decided to concentrate on the lines and seams of a typical shirt. I based my project around architecture, I wanted to make the details of the shirt subtle yet strong, making a statement. A lot of architecture uses negative space, so I incorporated that into my design along with the streamline details of a building.
Working out shapes and textures...
THE TECHNIQUE I USED FOR THE CUFFS WAS TUCKS, WHICH IS A FORM OF PLEATING. I THEN WAVED THEN ALL BY SEWING LINES UP AND DOWN THEM, TO CREATE A STRUCTURED EFFECT.
CREATIVE DRAWING ELIZABETH LAYTE
YOUTH IS GONE THIS PROJECT WAS ALL ABOUT DRAWING AND SKETCHING EXPERIEMTATION. DEVELOPING IDEAS AND DRAWING TECNIQUES WITHIN A SKETCH BOOK.
CREATIVE REALISATION ELIZABETH LAYTE
For this project I did, i wanted to learn something new and inspirational, so I decided to research into the Chakra healing. From my in depth research i came up with various ideas and also created my ideal customer out of it by matching each of the crystals healing qualities to the customer. I looked into the shapes of the crystals, from its raw form to the smoothed off edges when its all neatened and polished. I wanted to translate through my designs, the natural and rawness as well as the clean smooth edges of a polished crystal. so the two main design features throughout were the round shape and raw frayed edges.

DIGITAL FASHION ELIZABETH LAYTE
DIGITAL FASHION FOR THIS PROJECT I WANTED TO BRING IN A BRAND AND RE INVENT IT BY COMBINING A ART/FASHION MOVEMENT. I COMBINED THE BRAND ‘MARMITE’ AND THE PUNK MOVEMENT TOGETHER. THE RESONING BEHIND MY CHOICES WERE SIMPLE, MARMITE YOU EITHER LOVE IT OR YOU HATE IT AND THATS EXACTLY THE SAME WITH PUNK. I DIDNT WANT TO TRANLATE MARMITE SO OBVIOUSLY, SO I EXPERIEMENTED WITH DYES AND INKS ON FABRIC AND PAPER TO CREATE THE DRIP EFFECT YOU SEE WITH MARMITE. THEN I PUT THROUGH MY DYE SAMPLES ONTO TO PHOTOSHOP AND STARTED MANIPULATING THEM TO CREATE A UNIQUE PATTERN.
PRINT DEVELOPMENT TAKING A SIMPLE PHOTO OF ONE ON MY PRINT SAMPLES, I BEGIN TO MANIPULATE IT ON PHOTOSHOP, SWAPPING THE DROPS OF INK AROUND TO MAKE A UNIQUE PATTERN.

APPLICATION AND PROCESS ELIZABETH LAYTE
A Natural Formation... For this project I designed a capsule collection for kidswear. I based it around nautral formations, looking into how the earth creates unusual shapes and textures. I started my market research and began creating my ideal customer, I want my ideal child customer to be fun and free and love the outdoors. So I designed the clothes so there wearable and practical as well as fun and quirky. I experiented alot with the shape and making it fit comfortably and also concentrated on the main feature which is the pockets.
Mind mapping and collating research
Patch pocket Development
Pocket Practice I began to experiement on the shape and depth of the pocket, as well as what decorative techniques to put on the outside.
Capsule Collection For my muse, I wanted to show a child thats totally natural in the way the act in the public eye. So i thought Siri Cruise would be the perfect role model to show this.
