For my 7th project in my ND1 (national diploma year 1) in fashion and textiles, I was given the brief of designing a fashion accessory around the theme “at the sea side,” My accessory was to be made from felt which i had to make my self, i was also limited to only using two colures, as i didn’t particularly like the colours that the college had in stock i ordered my own of the internet (typically i ordered to much). I used two shades of blue which i blended as well as white which i dyed using tea. I was greatly inspired by vintage postcards and photos which helped me to determine my colour pallet, for the structure of my fascinator i was inspired by shells and for the vail i took inspiration from a fishing net. over all i am really pleased with the way in which his has turned out. i hope you like it.
