Tonight in my Digital Design, the final project of the semester was launched. Its a pretty big project encompassing technicalities in sewing, drawing, and mastering new softwares all at the same time. The task is to create 15 or more garments in technical drawings digitally as well as a manipulated photo “mood” board, tech sheets, as well as the refreshed illustrations that can be hand drawn and/or with digital accents accompanied with sew samples/evidence of 3-D design work.
I had an initial good start with the project because I want to use classical music as my inspiration- the different qualities, textures, and shapes of the wood and brass contrasted with the stark black and white sheet music implementing design from the classic tuxedo that the orchestra and conductor wear.
I’m kind of going in a different route now so the meeting with my professor didn’t go as well as I had planned. My ideas are kind of all over the place at this point because I’m going to sew half of the garments I’m creating on the computer/drawn out with a few materials I’m not used to working with nor am I sure my sewing machine can handle LOL
We’ll see, I have a lot of work to do and I need to focus on clearing up my ideas and how to express them visually.
