So we're doing tailoring in Studio this semester, it is VERY exciting to be able to put together pencil and paper and end up with a perfectly (well sort of) constructed tailored jacket in exactly your proportions with functioning welts, jets and lapels!

One of our first projects for the Studio was to deconstruct a basic tailored garment. The subject focuses on tailoring in terms of deconstruction- particularly influenced by Belgium & Japanese designers.

Here is the outcome of the first homework assignment- to translate a tailored jacket into something, anything, just specifically not a jacket.
(taking a mans jacket and placing the shoulder pads on the hips like a french farthingale; making the leap from menswear to womenswear almost instantaneously with the lapel and collar becoming the waist band and the cuffs used to create button detail at centre front)
