 STYLE SURFING – FROM SIDEWALK TO CATWALK

INSPIRATION – STREET CULTURE

Students will learn about the evolution of street style from the 1950’s to now.

Brief: Design and produce an on trend wearable contemporary collection, using elements of these stereotype groups as inspiration for design.

Think Teddy boys/Mods/Rockers/Hippies/Punks/Casuals/Goths/Technos.

We will produce an on trend JUMPSUIT from the 80’s as the first piece in the collection.

The 80’s jumped into jumpsuits with both feet.

The Iconic Jumpsuit – some fashion trends come and go, very few have staying power, however the jumpsuit adapted and evolved over the years and is now and iconic piece of clothing. The first appearance was in fact 1919, the jumpsuit was always destined to become a fashion icon.  A symbol of female heroism and adventure, it found it’s way from professions such as aviators, racing car drivers and sport’s women, to the catwalks of New York, Paris & Milan, all under the influence of Coco Chanel.

———-

Taking a spin back to the 1950’s, introducing our 2nd garment to the collection, the rough and ready BIKER JACKET.

Thanks to Marlon Brando in the 1950’s movie ‘The Wild Ones’, from then on the Biker Jacket  established itself as an iconic statement. Musicians and bands started to wear them, the leather jacket was the item worn by punks and rock subcultures.  Worn by bands like ‘The Beatles and Elvis and movie star Steve McQueen.

Onto the swinging 60’s we are producing A-line TUNIC DRESS.

TUNIC DRESS  1960’s

London Designer, Mary Quant, is imortalized by fashion iconography as the originator of the ‘miniskirt’ and  ‘minidress’. Introducing the “mod” era and the “Chelsea look”.  Bold prints and psychedelic colours, neon tights, big hair and false eyelashes were all a part of this eras image.

 Some of the Key Looks of the 1950s – The 50s Silhouette:

 Petticoats & Full skirts:- 

Wide circular or pleated skirts were worn with layers of petticoats to give lift and were prominent in both day and evening wear. Always to mid calf – never shorter but maybe longer for evening wear. Petticoats were several layers of net and generally starched for extra stiffness or frothy chiffon in evening wear in vibrant colours of green, pink and yellow!

———-

The HOODIE:

During the mid-seventies when hip-hop culture was developing, the hoodie started appearing on the scene around 1974 or 1975. The break-dancers wore them to keep warm before ‘they hit the floor’!

JUMPSUIT:
