This week we were given our new brief for the rest of the course. Under the theme of ‘Full of Eastern Promise’ we are asked to design a complete outfit for a remake and update of the classic Fry’s Turkish Delight advertisement. For those who don’t remember the ad here is a wee reminder:
The outfit can be either for a man or a woman and is to include trousers, top and turban/headpiece. We have been asked to research:
- historic clothing from the East
- the latest catwalk collections including harem trousers, cut work from Christopher Kane and Fendi, and Paul Smith, Chloe and Sportmax among others
- performance costume designers such as Erte and the Art Deco period
Lots to get our teeth into then!
