Terrific Tees

This semester you will produce three tops made from knit fabric: 1. A re-styled vintage T. 2. An embossed Plain purchased T. 3. A T designed, drafted and constructed by you. Each project will require you to:  Research styles and design options.  Sketch design ideas.  Trial construction and design techniques. Assessment will include:  Quality and use of a mood board.  A research assignment on  Reg Mombassa - T-Shirt designer.  A designer showing at Australian Fashion Week 20011.  The quality of your Visual Diary entries.  Success of your pattern drafting.  Construction of each of your designs.


Mood Board This task has a strict time limit; you will begin this task today and complete it for assessment next lesson.  Collect pictures or items, swatches and samples of colours and textures that you like. (Keep in mind that this will be used as inspiration for clothing design; BUT do not include pictures of clothing.)  Collect pictures of items that inspire you. (Examples – a flower bed showing an array of flowers in many colours might suggest floral fabric, a high rise building might suggest checked or striped fabric.)  Take a photograph of your favourite piece of jewellery or pair of shoes.  Arrange the items on a piece of coloured card. The arrangement should show your style. (Every item you make will reflect this board so make sure it represents you and what you like)  On a separate sheet: o Explain how this “Mood Board” shows your personal style. o Using your knowledge of colour theory discuss the colours you have chosen. o Discuss the textures and shapes that you have chosen and how these might relate to clothing design. o Discuss how the photograph/s of personal items you have included fit with the other items you have chosen.  Name your work.  Glue the discussion sheet to the back of the “Mood Board” and place it in the front of your A3 display folder.  Complete the self-evaluation rubric . Terms to use in your discussion: (Bonus marks will be given for each of these terms used correctly) Eclectic, Monotone, Tone, Hue, Shade, Contrast, Harmony, Complementary, Texture, Symmetrical, Asymmetrical, Neutral, Ordered, Balance, Glitz.
