During Christmas, I went up to London to look at designer’s collection in Liberty and Selfridges and also looked in high street stores such as Topshop to compare trends.
Our brief was to take knowledge of designer’s collections and look at the following:
· How many pieces within the collection
· How many dresses to tops and bottoms
· Colour story
· How much print was used / embroidery
· Use of fabrics
This was a successful day out in London, as I am more knowledgeable of a complete collection and understand how much print to embroidery should be used, also the amount of jackets, dresses, tops or trousers used to create a collection.
I will ensure I consider all the above in my FMP.
