i really like this project (research practices) because it links in with critical studies which ive really enjoyed this year. my idea is to use a gypsy them to develop my research and design until i have a final line up and can create my 1/2 scale model. so far im designing, ive finished my research and i need to get my design finished as i want to start making on monday or tuesday. because we are only in once a week for this project it seems really short but i enjoy havin my own time to do work and i think i work just as well as if i was in uni everyday
im so gladcrit and enterprise are handed in, im terrible at writing so im not expecting much of a grade for my essay but my folder was ok. enterprise presentations were on tuesday and it was so nervouse before and during, it wa such a relief after they were finished, and our busness plan and notes were handed in the week before.
the search for work experience has been hard,ive e mailed around 8 places and the only replies i;ve had are just that they dont do work experince or no reply at all,i need to try again,it just keep getting pused to the back of my mind and other prjects and work gettign in front of it.

its my presentation next week as well as hand in and im so nervous, my trend book is really good,i like it a lot i think it looks quite proffesional even though i had to re print a few pages as there were a few spelling mistakes! i have my presentation pretty much sorted i just need to practice it, and maybe pay someone to do it for me! i liked that we were shown properly how to do flats on this project at the start in the mac suites, its definately gonna benefit my work from now on as its such a good skill to have. it made my trend book look so much more proffessional than if i had just drawn them.
We've finally got our enterprise business idea sorted, its called rococo and we make new garments form vintage fabrics,still got a little bit to work on it but im happy we finally have an idea we can work with.

applied fashion design

this prject is really good, we are making our own trend and designing a collection and trend book around it, its nice to have some projects where you get a break from the stress of making a garment, its still always stressful though! my trend is called revolutionary and its very regal british with an edge. at the end of this prject we have to give a presentation,and i hate presentations,i so bad at them, i shake,go red,my voice wobbles, and my reading skills magically plumet! im enjoying it at the moment though,doin the trend and design work,desinging is probably my favorite part,because you can use all your ideas to develop exactly what you want. its my birthday tomorrow so i will not be doin anything work related this weekend,which means working extra hard next week!

after xmas

16th jan-christmas was really good, it was nice to go hame and have a little break and now back and doing design realisation, this project is a follow on from tailoring processes and im really enjoying this one, i seem to work more,and harder the more i like the project. we're making a garment on this project and im pretty excited about this as my garment in application of design was awful, i really want to prove that i can do well when making the garment.

we're also doin ppd2 at the moment which is ok, its just preparing for work experience and the interview we have at the end of the year,which is gonna make me so nervous! crit is still goin well,the lectures arent quite as good as the start of the year but still interesting and i enjoy the seminars,i just dont like my time slot (3pm-5pm)

29th jan- im making shorts for my project ive decided, im working on them now and im pretty optimistic about it as ots goin pretty well and getting put toghether pretty fast which means more time to do my technical package!yay

enterprise is goin ok,im in a group with bonnie and grace and our ideas arent strong enough for our business so we keep having to think of a new idea which is frustrating but im sure we'll get it in the end.

one looooong post

Ive been writing my blog in a notbook as my blog seemed to give up in september so i thought id save time trying to work it an just come back to it nearer th time so here is my very long post about all my work throughout this year so far:

september has been the hardest month for me this year as i had had such a great summer nd i wasnt ready to be back in the u.k. let alone uni. the rirst prject we did i didnt love, i found it hard to work in groups because not everyone's opinions can be used in the work,i got on with my group but i just found it hard to get my ideas across as much as i'd have liked. critical studies this year was so much more interesting than in 1st, i really enjoy it at the moment and find the lectures and seminars interesting,my favorite so far is the marxism one we just had. I did philosophy and ethics in A-level which i think helps me understand the theories.

tailoring processes has got me back on track with work and i really enjoy it, the little workshops we're doing with angie and hugo are so helpful and i will definately use them in future projects. i feel like im working a lot harder since the first project.
enterprise is a new thing this year and i dont think im enjoying it too much, its not difficult or anything i just dont think that subject inerests me much so i find it hard to concentrate but hey, its only once a week!
