How I Edit My Photos

Living in the UK means that we don’t get a great deal of sunlight except in the summer but even that is difficult as our seasons have blurred drastically in the last couple of months. Today I’ll be showing you how I edit my photos – and yes, this includes those already featured on my blog! Whilst every photo has its own characteristics dependent on things like lighting and shutter speed, I generally use the same steps for every photo that I edit.

PUZZLE | Gerber and Production Sheets, Process

  Costing Sheets and Specification Sheets as part of Gerber Module during Final Collection at University.

Some products were cut via Gerber Accumark software whilst others were manually cut first before being digitised, amended and plotted. My Graduate Collection predominantly deals with the ‘Puzzle’, its definitions and how this can be translated into garment design. As evident, I am confident in my skill to illustrate these garments and communicate them as best as possible to an otherwise stranger. I set myself a high standard to make such information viewable and extremely informative. Please do not remove content and claim as your own. Use as Reference Only.

REISS | Structuring the Organic

  Live University Group Project for British fashion brand Reiss from concept/inspiration to product realisation. “Structuring the Organic” begins with Claude Monet’s Water Lilies series at the Musée de l’Orangerie, and its wide contrasting setting. This juxtaposition of nature and clean architecture creates an unique interface for the Reiss Woman to explore textures and colour in a more sophisticated way.  As a group, we utilised the use of print, design detail and fabric to translate our inspirations whilst still having the customer in mind.
