History of the shirt: The garment was often made out of linen and some times silk. Before the middle ages the shirt was only worn as an underwear for men or as a night gown.The shirt had nocollar or cuff, but the a hem that could be tightened and buttoned. In the 18th century the shirt developed with a collar and was then worn as an outer garment. During thegolden days of tailoring this was a time where shirts werenot mass produced but tailored. The shirt was tailored to the body, and started to show up in more colourful designsespecially in sports and labour shirts. After World War 1 was when the shirt went through a major transformation. Modern shirts with button holes all along the front became popular. In the 1960â€™s the chest pocket was introduced into designs. A tailored shirt has now become a popular garment to wear dressed up or down. Television shows such as Downton Abbey and films like James bond have reinvented the classic white shirt.
Design Direction: Researching in to boxed, square textured structures, has led me to look at how you can use different types of fabrics and paneling techniques. Adding details such as paneling to a shirt can change the perception of the fit of the shirt. These modern structures and styles will be interpritated within the designs.
Design Idea. This shirt is to be worn by a modern man who is looking for a tailored styled shirt, with a hit of sports wear. A classic white shirt with a hint of a modern twist with key details to the buttons and collar. The texture of the sports eyelet fabrics give you the sportswear design. It also relates back to the textured structures. The tailored fit of this shirt means it could be either worn caasualy or even suited with a tie.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired, And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells, And run my stick along the public railings, And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick the flowers in other people’s gardens, And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat, And eat three pounds of sausages at a go, Or only bread and pickle for a week, And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry, And pay our rent and not swear in the street, And set a good example for the children. We will have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practise a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised, When suddenly I am old and start to wear purple! Jenny Joseph

Stylised Photo shoot for Final Major Project.
Concept for photo shoot: This collection is a heavily tailored collection, with a mixed of sportswear silhouettes and fabrics with traditional tailoring techniques. Through out the collection a large amount of colour has been used. Therefore within the photo shoot, I have considered the idea of having blocked colour lighting behind with dark shadows around the garments and models. As the whole collection is based around the key details there will be close up photos of jetted pockets, stitching detail and logos. As the garments are extremely busy the models will be styled with natural hair and no make up. With the mix of tailoring and sportswear the shoes that will be used will be grey nikes with a hit of either the green, pink or purple.
Behind the scenes and setting up.
We set up the studio with a plain white background, With the center light beaming in the middle, on the left we had a light with a green film over. On the right hand side we had a light with a pink film. We created the light so the colours were softened yet the garments stood out.
Outfits three and six phoot shoot.
Outfits two and five phoot shoot.
