In my range plan, there is not too many selection of colours because I wanted to keep it all in a tight colour range. I wanted the choice to be in nude flesh tones or black. Therefore it can easily be matched with any garment and I like the idea of the 50's style matching skirt and top conbination.
This s my favourite image representing my collection, how the garmetns are to be worn and the vouristic feel. I really like the tv stripes to make the viewer feel as they are looking throught a tv screen.
In this image I have tried the title as in fades in in movies.
My images I took were slightly blury because I could't get strong enough lighting or a tripod, but I think in this case this effect works.
I have tried to take voyeuristic, dark style photographs almost of an old fashioned porn scene. I have been trying to represent gender bending though a male model in feminine clothing to try and express the beauty in cross dressing.
Potential Fabric and colour board. Shows the natural skin tones, with my fabric i have used in the garments on a dark background.
I have been looking at ways to present my boards. I want to keep the voyeurism aspect. I want to reflect the concept of "the gaze". The gaze was originally a concept talking about how women were objectified in art. When they did not look at the camera they were letting the men watch them. I want to use "the gaze" but show how ideas about women and men have changed, and a power shift. I think by having the style of the Agent Provocateur add below in a voyeuristic film still- but with an androgynous male model, this could be a good way to represent my idea.I really like the dark lighting. Almost black and white with skin tones- like my collection. I also like the time running. Shows the film element well.
I like the black and white element. I want to keep a very dark background, keeps a clean, professional, film strip and voyeuristic feel.
I want to try a male model in pin up style poses.
Before the photo shoot I need make more of my designs to show my concept.
I have decided to add in fake leather to my project. The skin colour and wrinkly texture goes well with my concept. For this garment I have top stitched a bustier seams on the leather singlet. I wanted to illude to underwear while still keeping the 1950's style to the colthes.
I love this fabric. The colour (better in real life) and texture is very soft. I love the feathery pattern. I think this kind of fabric gives my garments a point of difference that the target market will appreciate.
