"The King's Huntsman" - Independent Practice 2020

A Menswear Capsule Collection Inspired by Traditional Tailoring Techniques with A Contemporary Design Approach.

The King's Huntsman is a characterization of traditional menswear tailoring but with a contemporary design twist. From September 2019 to May 2020, this collaborative project, with Karlus G, Tailor and Nedge Farm Riding Centre, was influenced by 19th Century tailoring. Specifically looking into the bespoke uniforms of equestrian riders. Research consisted of library books, documentaries and visits to Nedge Farm Riding Centre before being developed further throughout the design phases.

My portfolio is a representation of the whole process, including conceptual research, design development, final capsule collection line up and a visualisation of the final photoshoot of my final major project at Birmingham City University. This is the story of The King's Huntsman 2020 by Emma Lauren Heywood.
