I have worked with a bridal organisation based in Stourbridge, taking their garments through the full manufacture process.
For my Final Major Project I was given the opportunity to collaborate with a company of my choice. I chose to collaborate with a bridalwear company, as I felt it would enhance my knowledge of the industry further and would serve as a new challenge. My research resulted in a collaboration with Georgina Scott Bridal.
This project required me to produce two full outfits in a base size as well as a larger size. The aim of this project was to take the two outfits through the manufacturing process, from initial sketches to fully finished garments. The project included the creation of technical specification packs, grading, layplans and costings and QA reports.
The process involved several fit sessions, each identifying issues which needed to be amended to improve the final garments.
The whole process has enabled me to enhance and develop a range of skills needed as a garment technologist, which I look forward to applying to a future position.
