Fashion Feud Collar Project Design Brief
The Fashion Feud (#fashionfeud) Collar Project was a collaborative project run by Fashion Feud UK earlier in 2016, providing students and designers an opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and showcase their work in the Fashion Feud launch exhibition.
The Fashion Feud (#fashionfeud) Collar Project was open internationally to textile designers, fashion designers, bloggers, students, and graduates from a fashion, textile or art background.
For the Fashion Feud (#fashionfeud) Collar Project a white collar was used to serve as a blank canvas for the fashion project. The white collar provided to the project participants to work with was a unique collar design developed by the Fashion Feud team that was based on their minimalistic, graphic style of their brand logo.
There were no restrictions on the fabric manipulation techniques that could be used for the project. Participants were free to pleat, gather, paint, print, embroider, embellish, knit, sculpt, or even destroy the collar in order to create a unique design of their own and showcase their creativity.
Fashion Feud Collar Project Design and Inspiration
The final collar design I’ve created for the Fashion Feud Collar Project has one-half of the collar manipulated whilst the other half remains in its original true form. Firstly, this is a play on the fact that the initials of Fashion Feud are the same repeating letter F. Every time I remember this and look at the collar I see each side of the symmetrical collar as ‘same but different’ – so I wanted to continue this concept that seems to dominate my thoughts as I look at the collar.
