As I am currently finding out ways to waterproof fabric, I became intrigue with various coated fabrics.
I am particularly fascinated with the lustrous effect of this cape. This fabrication speaks of high performance and futuristic cool.

Complex Patterns: Aitor Throup

Aitor Throup, 2007.

Designer Aitor Throup has a sense of presentation for his garments which seems to mimic the way that a pattern makers mind visualises patterns. His work, which uses a series of complex panels to create forms, is often presented alongside the panels that make up the same garment.

'A traditional New Orleans Jazz Funeral for the late tuba player Kerwin James. He died in Oct. 2007. Alot of viewers have been asking whats the reason for rocking the casket, it's so he can dance one last time.'

Quote from onenawlins.


What a shockingly beautiful celebration of life.
It would be amazing to incorporate the nostalgic and celebratory element of Jazz in the final show.

I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire - Single Version

'I don't want to set the world on fire

I just want to start a flame in your heart

In my heart I have but one desire

And that one is you, no other will do’

As a design reference I have been looking at a number of online fashion blogs to see what is out there in mens fashion, in particular streetwear.
I am particularly interested in this photo as it is a photo of man, dress with colour in an almost whimsical manner. I adore the layering of dull colours with a glimpse of the tangerine shirt as a highlight, and the cheekiness of the purple pants. The juxtaposition of textured knit with checkers is again an interesting match.

'When it comes to fashion, the boys have finally trumped the girls.

The latest Roy Morgan readership figures signal a sign of optimism for men’s print publishing, with GQ surging 50.7 per cent.

In stark contrast to the latest circulation figures, the year to March 2013 was largely positive for magazines with 67 titles recording increases compared to 63 seeing declines.’

From ‘GQ trumps the Girls’ on ragtrader

Caused by the postmodernism and other social and political movement from the 1980s, the representation of men and the masculine ideal began to shift. Consumer culture became an integral part of society and the display of luxury goods equates to an emblem of success and achievement. Tradition displays of masculinity shifted and masculinity were reconstructed through consumption. THis is where magazines comes to play. As technology advances, the new mediums of communication aids and advertise the construction of men as consumers. GQ magazine as a online and physcial magazine are an excellent example of this occurance.

It would be interesting to see if mens fashion will one day be equally exubrant as womenswear.

Tricks of the Trade.

One of my side influences in my collection is armoury and the notion of protection in the modern society. Therefore I began to watch out for design features in historical costumes. One thing that intrigued me as I was watching Game of Thrones was the different styles of chainmail. In particular, how they were constructed.


As a knitter, I was particularly interested in the character Thoros of Myr and his ‘chainmail’. I am 99% sure that it was just a simple knitted piece constructed with chunky yarns and overdyed to give a worn down texture. A similar style of knit is seen on the grey scarf. Through colour and context, the same technique can create new meaning.

Knit is such a versatile form of textile. I wonder how I can reinterpret it further.

(Hint. See my Instagram C_INI_C and there’s a preview of a knit that I am developing!)

So how do you normally draw your figures? People don’t always stands with the perfect posture. How would your designs appear when people move?
