Being our first printed Zine we were excited to experience every aspect of creating a collaborative collection. We wanted to experiment with unique styling techniques, illusions, and creative effects to push the boundaries of fashion.

Inspired by the nature of distortion, my garment’s intention is to challenge the generic silhouette. Throughout the research process I accumulated different concepts of distortion experimenting with develop methods this could be created. I was originally inspired by the protective garments MOSI had, specifically the gas masks. I found it fascinating how distorted a face could become from an item clothing designed to preseve you. In addition to this we had access to the extraordinary collections, including a book filled with vivid trademarks prints. One which particularly caught my eye was a group of figures which had white material covered there face with the illustration detail suggesting a stripe across their face. Again interested by the distortion and how the figures looked intentionally different, I used these ideas as my starting point. Using materials, shape making and fabric sourcing I began to illustrate a collection stemmed from my original inspiration. Influence by the work of Lucy McRae and Comme de Garcons I started to form a garment which was both functional yet unique. With hand finished fabrics and a very long zip, the final garment depicts how the simplicity of fashion is able to challenge our own figure in countless ways.

The main concept behind my design with my love for print; I wanted experiment with new ideas and set outside my comfort zone. Throughout my research I have shown contrast and opposites; whether it was drape with boxy silhouettes or digital and hand drawn prints mixed together. I also used the idea of different transparency’s to create an optical illusion with layers of print. Inspiration from my print designs came from various parts of MOSI; the geometrical shapes and line were taken from engine parts and train blue prints. With the addition of an African themed colour scheme taken from the African wax prints located in the archive. My final aim was to create a garment that features bold colour and a dimension to print.

My design was inspired by the circular forms found among the archives of MOSI. Throughout my research and design process I explored different ideas of shape, repetition and print through drawing, collage and design. My final design is based on a print idea from the mechanical diagrams in the archives which I then refined and simplified

into

engineered

pattern

pieces to create the illusion of a print. The vibrant colours were inspired by the ‘baby-computer’ in the museum. The

bright

orange

and

turquoise

really popped against the industrial greys of the machinery which is a concept I then developed throughout my

designs.

Influenced

by

urban

brands such as Marni and Stella McCartney, I wanted to create a clean cut coat that reflected the crisp, mechanical forms of MOSI.


Aviation and turbines were my main inspiration at MOSI. The lines in the machinery

were

just

running

through

my

mind.

I

was

really

interested

in

the movement and structure all the machines and turbines had to offer. I expressed

this

vision

through

drawing,

illustrations

and

further

research.

My aim was to create and design a garment that would represent a burst of my personality, as well as the movement, edge and lines I was drawn to at MOSI. I brought my design to life; it was bold, colourful, and full of my personality. I managed to execute the lines, and structure with the use of my pleats and layering. I also managed to convey the movement of the machines with volume, and layering of my fabric. Gabriella Sardena Age:19 From: Gibraltar gabriella-93@hotmail.co.uk
