You are required to submit a digital folio incorporating visual and written components:
You will identify a range of garments using appropriate terminology including, details, styling & finishing to create a visual & informative, well-written presentation with great attention to vocabulary and textile terminology. You will be able to characterise the different garment segments, categories, seasons and types and to demonstrate an intermediate knowledge of fabric, construction, fit and finishing methods, underpinned by sustainable considerations which will be demonstrated through your secondary research. You will assess the approximate cost of a garment from a photograph/sketch, explaining the general cost break down.
You will create a digital folio, containing information about the development process of your face mask, showing a minimum of 6 different garments using flat drawings sourced from WGSN and a spec sheet of one of your own garments.
You will show clearly in the folio your understanding of fibres, fabrics, garment construction, costing, finishing details, trade drawings and spec sheets.
You will link fabric suggestions to the folio to demonstrate the knowledge you have learned from the first assessment and see how you can build upon your learnings.
You will classify the garments according to the season, segment, category, type, fit and style and will be able to demonstrate your ability to develop trade/flat drawings and spec sheets with all the appropriate information.
You will present your Fashion Garment Folio digitally, containing maximum 2000 words & a minimum of 6 images of different fashion garments.
This is an individual assignment.
Please review the Assessment overview for further information.
In this course, you will look at the essential ingredients of fashion construction & market identification. You will develop an in-depth understanding of the trims, finishing techniques, and construction details required for making a final assessment of the garments market level. In this second assignment, you will build upon the knowledge developed in the first assessment to provide a final fabric suggestion for each garment in the report.
As you research different garments, you will learn more about the manufacturing process and assess the environmental impacts of the product, also, you will use your secondary research to provide alternative sustainable options. By the end of the assignment, you will be able to understand the garment development process, from fibre to manufacturing, taking your knowledge of fabric cost and building upon that with the additional costs needed for completing a garment.
Fashion Garment Folio
PART A – The Face Mask Journal
In this part of the assignment, you will be developing your own Face-Mask, from fabric selection to sewing. You should record (pictures/words/drawings/fabric swatches, etc) in a digital journal all the steps and processes carried out to manufacture your mask. The following steps are suggested:
Step 1- Research about Face masks, the different types of face masks, the effectiveness of masks for reducing transmission of COVID, etc – you can use “non-academic/grey literature” for this purpose, however, it is always good to find academic research. Discuss why the masks are required and important during this time and specify the requirements for this specific product.
Step 2- Watch the below video OR read the document available here: MIY Mask project.pdf and create the pattern for a face mask.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUXPqbLzMpk
Step 3- Select the fabric (s) and trims for developing your face-mask. Determine the criteria (THE WHY) used for this selection.
Step 4- Place the pattern on the fabric and analyse the best way to use of the fabric to reduce wastage. Please think about the cuttable with of the fabric (even if it is a “piece” of fabric) and correct use of the fabric (face and wrong sides, prints, weaving patterns, etc).
Step 5- Cut your face mask and manufacture it, this can be done by hand or by using a sewing machine. Please determine the advantages and disadvantages of the process selected. Record the time spent in each step.
Step 6- Create a flat drawing of the face mask. It can be done by hand or in CAD. If done by hand you can use the pattern to help you create the flat drawing. Please supply as many details as possible for the face mask (measurements, fabric details, trims details, etc.)
You can start the flat drawing of your face mask by finding a similar drawing in WGSN and modifying it in CAD.
Step 7- Determine the cost of your face-mask based on the time, materials, trims, etc. spent to develop it. Please record the time you spend doing each process as this influences the cost of the product.
PART B – 2 Mini collections
Step 1. Determine 2 garment segments/categories you want to explore. It will be great if you select segments/categories that are new to you!
Step 2. Find academic secondary information (use your RMIT online library- use IBIS world reports or other databases) regarding each of the segments/categories selected ie. Plus size and Resort wear, or, Fitness wear and Sleepwear, etc. and determine the characteristics of that segment/category: how big is this market segment? who are the main players? main type of garments? purpose of the segment/category, etc
Step 3. Using the WGSN flat drawings create a mini collection for each segment/ category. (For this, you gather images from WGSN). Determine season, type of garment, style, fit, etc. and then, find 3 garments that fit your criteria to create the mini collection.
Step 4. You are requested to create the flat drawings of each garment (6 in total). Remember to have front and back of the garment. Complete each flat drawing by specifying the different parts of each garment, trims and details of the garment (use the learning materials provided in week 6).
Step 5. Analyse each of the images selected and determine the fabric that will suit better each selected garment in terms of fabric composition, weight, width, fabric structure, fabric finish, garment construction (CMT woven, CMT knitted, fully fashioned, etc), garment finish, etc.
PART C – Garment specification sheet
Step 1. Select ONE garment from your wardrobe (WOVEN) and take a picture of the front and back sides of the garment in a flat surface.
Step 2. Take an image of the fabric and enhance it as much as possible
Step 3. Describe the garment in terms of garment fabric, fabric properties, garment construction, garment type, style, fit, garment finish, segment/category, season etc.
Step 4. Create a flat drawing of the garment. It can be done by hand or in CAD. If done by hand please use the templates provided to maintain the garment proportion. Please detail the garment as much as possible.
You can start the flat drawing of your garment by finding a similar garment in WGSN and modifying it in CAD.
If you are making your trade drawing by hand, the following video can help you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KwvS9HLg7w
Step 5. Work out the estimated cost of the garment, based on the information provided in class and available on Canvas.
Step 6. Create ONE specification sheet for your garment (please complete the 6 parts of the spec sheet). Use the additional learning materials available to complete your spec sheet using the correct terminology.
