Drawings of uniforms from the Working Life exhibition which showcased working uniforms for waitresses, factory workers and welders during the 1920s and 1970s. Despite the 50 year period, the overall look of the clothing is very similar. Both drawings are very baggy and oversized on the arms, suggesting comfort or basic fitting rather than tailored.

Drawings taken from the Soldier’s Life exhibition which inspired silohette and possible details for garment development. The trims on these uniforms were gold coloured which gave the clothing a sense of luxury.

These detail drawings were to help influence direction. These observational garment drawings were taken from high-end brands such as Diesel, Barbour and Ralph Lauren; inspiring the selected tweed fabric.

Taking the arrows from the uniform and creating a pattern for potential print or garment design. This pattern could also link to the material. A herringbone fabric could be used for the selected garment.

Taking inspiration from more recent Soldier uniforms and combining the camouflage with the hood and neck fastening. Camouflage has since worked its way into designer labels as part of khaki colour palettes.

Experimentation with different styled garments but using the same materials and silohette. The cut-out shoulders were inspired by 2015 ready-to-wear garments, adding extra detail to the design, aside from the obscure shaped pockets.

This selection of designs were inspired by the earlier periods of the Soldier’s Life exhibition, taking the silohette and formal trims. This combined with the modern camouflage made an interesting design which could be altered into many different forms.

With tweed being a completely different fabric and texture to camouflage these designs focused more on the fastening and detail. This is one example of the tweed designs which is very similar to the garment design, with three centre straps and a neck strap.

PHOTOGRAPHY STYING

Consideration for photography stying took place before the shoot, using inspiration from Pinterest. This helped decide what positions to put the model in and what would work best on location. The model was able to look at the images and know exactly where to put her hands, how to position her feet and the expression to have on her face with visual and verbal direction.

At the start of the research process, soldier’s life was very significant with exploration into Northumberland Soldiers. Through the development process and fabric selection, this theme slowly became more agricultural based. With tweed commonly associated with hunting and farming, this inspired the location choice of the shoot. Growing up with relatives that live on a farm allowed the shoot to be a little more personal. Having access to all areas of the farm, gave much opportunity for experimentation. Having gone to the location with styling inspiration, this made it easier to select areas which would give a similar effect and give the desired result.

The selected model is a horse rider, regularly spending her time in these kind of agricultural areas, making her no stranger to the lifestyle. She was the perfect model choice for this shoot.

Through the shoot it was important to capture the scenary and incorporate the surroundings into the photographs to set the mood. If this garment was photographed in a studio, it would not have had the same effect as it does with the outdoor farm land in the background.
