WOMENSWEAR AW/20

Prior to my final year at university, a year within industry had given me a range of knowledge and experiences with a smaller scale brand that has processes entirely different to companies that work on a more global scale. This enticed me to want to explore the alternate side of the industry to what I had previously experienced, thus gaining a more thorough understanding and developing a wider exposure to more varieties of the industry. In my FMP project I collaborated with British born retailer Superdry. The remit was to produce a capsule collection of two outfits from the brands designs, focusing on the creation of red seal samples with the view to a fit session with Superdry to progress with alterations to a gold seal. This as well as grading, fabric and component testing, product development the process developed skills key to a successful industry garment technologist. Using knowledge and experience to problem solve through the pattern cutting stage and research to ensure standards were kept at Superdry’s industry level. The garments developed in the project was, a trench coat and a shirt dress for the first outfit and a wool jacket, hoodie and jeans for the second. The key to a successful outcome was to ensure the brand (Superdry) was constantly being referred to with thoughts on consumer profiles and the decision of the fabrics, as well as technically identifying whether the process being used was suitable for Superdry as a conglomerate global industry. Overall this project explores all the skills required for a garment technologist, developing work with a brand that has become engrained into the work produced throughout.
