Metamorphsis Knit

From my previous post, I posted illustrations from my Metamorphsis Knit project which has ended already. I am a little bit annoyed that I didn’t do as well I have hoped, but it came all together. And I just took some photos of the two outfits on my mannequin. I shall be doing a photoshoot soon, but here’s a little preview.

My first outfit, made with yellow jersey, and black acrylic wool. I need the stripes of black with a little ruffle along the way once in a while inspired by the spine of human.

My second look which is completely knitted on my machine. My first time drafting out a pattern as well as using a punchcard, but I have to tell you it was fun. It is made with yellow acrylic wool, and the pattern is with black wool and white elastic, so it’s really tight and fitted around the torso area.

Currently I am on the new project, which is to make 6 jersey toiles in 3 weeks. We have had one and a half week already and I am on my 4th toile, so I am doing ok. My inspiration for this project is from the Liege Railway Station designed by Santiago Calatrava. I love architecture. And with jersey and draping I can create so much with it. However, I didn’t want to just drape on the body, I wanted to push the boundary slightly so I am actually doing lot more paneling on the body. We didn’t have to have an inspiration or source or research but we were given 5 words and it included Body conscious, Angular and Sculptural.  Immediately my head sprung to this particular piece of architecture because he was inspired by the woman’s body for the arch and curve of the building. Photos for this project will be coming up soon.

Oh, and I have been busy preparing the last parts for my A/W09 for the 24th of Feburary at the Kensington Roof Garden with King’s college. Hopefully everything will be alright and straight forward. I did some quick test shoots the other day just to show the people what the pieces should look like and worn, and here are some of the pieces. I have 8 looks in total. And I have managed to make all this in 1 month and a half and I am quite proud (because I wasn’t told about this until the beginning of January)

Anyway, must get back to work, bon nuit.
