Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought. – Albert Einstein
Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people. — Leo Burnett
Working in collaboration with Amanda Wakeley, this project focused on developing and producing two outfits to required specifications. Patterns were created in a base size 10 and then graded, both manually and on the Gerber system, to a size 16. The outfits were presented at two fit meetings to the company, from which the fit and manufacture of the garments were assessed and refined.

Individual Brand Collaboration - The final major project provides an opportunity to work directly with industry, following the processes of acting as the supplier, taking forward all manfacturing developments, liaising with the brand and formulating technical specifications for the final outcomes. In collaboration with Hackett London,
I have been able to communicate with the brand and present garments by attending two fit meetings. This progression began from creating the initial garment patterns and moving them forward into alliance with the Gerber system for finalisations whilst incorporating manual grading skills to complete grade rules, finally producing lay plans and costings for the garment. This project is a reflection of three years study during which has contained a series of pathway options and conclusion personal goals. Therefore, this final stage enables the presentation of a diverse range of skills that show final my outcomes, displayed through the development in this portfolio.
