Signature Project

Hoods for Homeless

For this module I will be attempting to tackle the issue of protective clothing for homeless people, I noticed the clothes they have/wear isn’t suitable for the conditions they have to put up with.

I chose to focus on this as I see it as a big problem that is only increasing as time goes on, I first noticed how much of a problem this was when I started commuting to Birmingham city centre almost every day for university, homeless people were out in all conditions getting soaking wet or burning hot in the sun with no shelter to protect them, thinking back to this when tasked with the module I decided it would be the perfect topic for me to focus on.

I have designed garments for a brand I named: ‘Hoods For Homeless’ as that’s essentially what we will be providing, as the charity will progress onto other projects amongst the homeless community I have decided to name this ‘The Outerwear Project’ as everything we will be supplying right now is outerwear based.
