Processes and techniques

Part of the Product Design Process is exploring a range of techniques which could be used to create the designs. We have been running some workshops to give everyone hands on time trying some new techniques and processes. These have included quilting, machine embroidery and felting so far.

Unit 2 update

The team has finished the logo designs, there is a selection of choices for the final. But the team needs to all annotate each logo for feedback. The mood board and research on the spirit hood is finished and laid out in the folio. The mind map has also been done along with the client profile and the design brief and the team profile is in development.

Unit 4 progressing on toiles and production

The year 12 students are working hard on the completion of their toiles. A toile (pronounced “twahl”) is a “mock up” of the final garment. This is done to confirm the pattern, design and shape fit the person it is being designed for. Although usually done in calico, as we have a range of fabrics being used in final productions, the toile fabrics need to reflect a similar weight or stretch.
Some students have decided to make their toile using the same fabric as their final, to give themselves extra practice working with tricky fabrics like satins and taffetas
