I can now share my second final collection for 'Journeys' with you. This collection has been designed for the bedding market. I took inspiration from nature whilst still trying to include small hints of architectural imagery. I found this collection much more challenging than the curtains because I really had to think about many more elements, particularly scale and placement as bedding is an item that people are much more willing to be experimental with as it is not as big a purchase as curtains.
I'm happy with the colour scheme of these designs especially and feel that they make successful bedding designs marketed at any age of the female market. I did have some of these fabrics printed onto fabric but ended up having a huge disaster a couple of days before the hand in- the fabrics ran in the wash! Thankfully I didn't lose any marks as it was a technical but I am just so glad this work is now handed in and over with. It feels like I've been working on for so long, but I feel like my CAD skills have really improved. My next hurdle will be getting the hang of NED graphics and a horrid geometry exam next week! After that I will be free for the summer and I always find it strange when I don't have a project to be getting on with so I'll definetly be setting myself my own briefs to build up my portfolio even more and really solidify my design identity.
I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging about 'journey's and sharing the project from start to finish! I'll be continuing to share all of work in this way and as always, any feedback is very welcome :) Thanks for taking the time to read, Stephanie
