AUTUMN/WINTER – SPRING/SUMMER

2021/2022

Brief: Design and produce an on trend wearable collection using The Wizard of Oz and The Yellow Brick Roads as inspiration.

This collection we are taking inspiration from the characters of the movie. Join us as we leave behind a world of dull drab greys and step into a life of colour, magic and adventure as we explore our theme “the Wizard of Oz” (follow the yellow brick road, somewhere over the rainbow).

Thinking about the hidden narrative in the movie, we hope to get little minds understanding what it really means to look inside themselves and recognize the magic they already possess, all the while having fun designing their unique fashion piece!

Experiment with different fabrics, textures and design techniques as you dive deeper into the theme;

The movement of the tornado!

The transition from black and white to colour!

The rich greens and decadence of Emerald City!
