This collection is developed with the theme given by the Batsford prize which is "At Peace." I have chosen two brands to design for, Loewe and Cecilie Bahnsen. I had picked a specific collection from both designers to fit into the theme of this competition.

Line Up & Technical Drawing

My final 3 designs include garments that are cozy, with silhouette that I would wear as a child and when I am retired.

Shapes of these designs are mostly puffy, with balloon sleeves with tie details and exaggerated cuffs, a textured turtleneck and side skirt with organza fabric on look 1. A deconstructed high neck jacket with buttons opening, wavy organza texture on the front bodice, with knitted chia sprouts fabric for the sleeves with wavy textured and a relaxed knitted wide leg trousers for the second look. The third look feature a cropped knitted jacket with a hood and long balloon sleeves with tie details on extended wavy organza cuffs, a wavy organza manipulation corset with hook and bar opening, paired with an A-line ankle skirt with chia microgreen sprouts on knitted fabric.

Trend Analysis

As this collection reflect on my own childhood experience, I decided to choose Women’s knit and jersey forecast for S/S24. By using soft and comfortable materials such as knitted fabric, a sense of peacefulness could be achieve. I had looked into Country cabin which focused into the importance of community based gardening which tie very well with the brand I chose and my own memory as childhood, who wanted to be as close to nature as possible. The second trend is engineered curve which I would like to implement on my textile, as well as the silhouette of my designs. The colour palette I will focus on included some dark blue, soil, oat, and dark green to match the inspiration and trend.
