Parsons x Teen Vogue: Product
22/12/2015 § Leave a comment
The final instalment of this course required us to produce the mockup bag in an actual fabric that we created channelling stripes and to tally up total costings.
Below is the chart with costs and labour charges as well as a prediction for a retail price. As you can see i’ve used a simple polycotton blend as this can easily be manipulated in colour allowing it to be a universal staple product for any store.
Skill wise, i’m definitely more comfortable designing – pen to paper, paint to canvas etc. I had already imagined how I would create the stripes: frayed/ton fabric layered on top of each other with pieces of lace in between. I also knew that I wanted the colour palette to be neutral so that the colours of the garments would compliment it well. Overall i’m happy with the final design, construction could be tidier and sturdier but the aesthetic comes across well and reflects my ideas.
