As part of the final major project, I have, after careful consideration, decided that I am going to create lingerie garments that are reminiscent of a previous era. The concept of the project, is to create an identity within the final pieces. Ultimately, I wish to produce a set/ installation of these garments to reflect the identity of an absent person from another period in time, as well provoke a sense of nostalgia.
As part of research, I spent the day browsing and photographing the little vintage shops and stalls of Portobello road. Took some really lovely photographs that encapsulate the aesthetics and the mood of what I want to ultimately create for the final piece. Also bought some beautiful vintage lace and chiffon material that'll be used to make the lingerie pieces.
