Charlotte Robinson

I am currently in my 3rd year studying a degree in Fashion & Textiles at Colchester School of Art and Design. My strengths, interest are producing Digital Prints, garment construction and pattern cutting, Photoshop and Illustrator.

I have gained more knowledge within the fashion and textiles industry through work experience such as London Fashion Week, Couture Tailoring at St. Martin's School of Fashion and my most recent work placement at Paul Dennicci Childrenwears Company; where I am a designer's assistance, designing for Disney.

My ambitions for the future: To have a career in the Fashion Industry as a designer or a buyer.

This blog will show my work/influences and progress throughout the final year of my degree.
Dress Toile:
I am pleasantly surprised as I did not expected this to come out as good I thought I would need to make a few more changes compare to all my other toile’s I used a stretch fabric when I toile this dress so therefore my side panel moved and did not join in the centre. When making the real thing I will not be using a stretch fabric. I will start sewing from the middle and go from side to side to ensure this panel does not move.  The things I need to amended are: Lower the neck line to sit on collarbone, add 2cm to the CB. When making the real garment I will interface all of the structured side panels to ensure they are strong and hold firmly.
