Fore one of my modules in fashion design, we got set an assignment to produce patterned tiling for a chosen end use. We had to come up with a theme and colour palette, so I chose to redesign wallpaper for a 70's retro bar. I thought it was a bit different, and I enjoyed researching into 70's patterns and design. We had to design two different tiles, cut them up and rearrange them into alternative patterns.
I then chose the best one, and applied it to the end setting. I found it challenging as we had to work out the costings for raw materials and labour, along with scales and end dimensions.
I am pleased with the outcome and think my designs do have a 70's feel to them.
I never thought I would ever be doing anything like this on a fashion design course- but hopefully it will broaden my skills for the future!
