For this workshop we had to purchase a man’s vintage tailored jacket [ nothing to expensive! ] and to deconstruct it.
Looking and examining the tailored jacket inside and out, I then unpicked the lining separating it from the outer shell of the tailored jacket.
The images below will show my experimentation with the lining on the mannequin.
After experimenting with the lining of the tailored jacket, I then experimented with the shell of the jacket in various styles.
The last two images remind me of a straight jacket.
Overall, I enjoyed this workshop because it amazed me how much you can discover from a tailored jacket. I was taken by surprise how much you can do with it and see how intricate the details are.
This workshop really inspired me as you can do tonnes of experimentation just by unpicking. This also made me realise that you can recycle fashion by being eco friendly and being creative with garments!
