After doing study of how people accepted fashion in past and how
fashion evolved I studied about the garment technology because for
creating any design collection just ideas will not be sufficient I have to
pay attention to the various other points like the garment costing,
pattern cutting, trimming, fusing, pressing and quality check of the
garments. In this regard I had a in depth study of the same in the
subject garment technology before developing a collection .
In every design garment can
be divided into two parts -
Tie and dye
Garment Can Be Divided Into
As a student of fashion design I have learnt many things. One important
consideration before we start designing is to focus on the different kind
of silhouette developed through the years in the fashion timeline. Along
with the silhouette the elements and principles to be followed while
developing a design. This generation of silhouette I learnt through the
practical experience during my study of garment construction and
Garment Construction – The garment construction taught me the
basics of stitching and how a fabric behaves when cut on straight and
bias grain. The garments learnt under this have been showcased
bellow. All my work can be seen in my project.
Draping – In draping I learnt that how to create different types of
garments without taking the body measurement . We can make toile
and check how the final garment will fit on the body. In draping I have
learnt many things which can be seen in my project of draping.
Includes the all over design of a garment its form and shape plus all the details
involved in assembling the sections of the garment such as darts, pleats, tucks etc.
Structural design may add a decorative quality if emphasized by colour contrast or
row of top stitching to outline the basic garment parts. In apparel, structural design
is more important because it is the fundamental component of design.

In my two year diploma program I have learnt that garment technology
is not only required to design any garment. I also learnt about the
decorative part of garment the Surface design technique. Using surface
design techniques we can totally change the look and feel of a fabric or
garment. In our design we can use different techniques such as
embroidery, tie and dye, weaving etc. These different techniques will
give the different texture to the garment.
06 SURFACE DESIGN
These designs need the basic form and the designs drawn will be
draped over it. It will have more trimmings, prints, embroidery, buttons
and tacked on bows. In these designs the fabric, style and colour
combinations are described so that one can select the design.
As a student of 2nd year fashion design I am supposed to design a
collection for my year end portfolio submission to industry. This
portfolio showcases my skill set to industry. Which I am presenting to
the fashion design industry.
To make my portfolio the college has provided case study.
• You are supposed to design a collection for a young women of the
age group 24 – 26 for resort wear ( casual wear ). The students have
to create dresses.
• The student has to clearly state about their collection.

• According to my case study I studied about the resort wear ( casual wear) and make certain points
which needed in my collection that is the garment should be comfortable, body movement should
be easy and de – emphasis the body curves.
• After making these points I studied about the fashion history timeline in which I got inspired from
the Egyptian time period and I have taken certain points for my collection that is the pleats and
papyrus flower motif.
• I have taken the pleats because it is provide “freedom of movement” which is needed in my
resort wear collection. For this I researched about the various pleats which shows different texture
on the fabric.
• Another point which is important in my collection is de – emphasis the female body structure.
When I was studied the fashion history I noticed that women in early time used to wear ‘Cape’ as
a outer garment and from early time cape is used to “de – emphasis the female body structure.”
Now days cape is also use as a fashion statement.
STORY BEHIEND MY COLLECTION
When I was studying about the fashion designers who got inspired form the Egyptian time period and
create collection. I saw Alessandra Meskita’s collection on resort wear which attracts me. This
collection she was showcased in New York fashion week Spring-Summer collection 2013.
Alessandra Meskita grew up in Brazil. In 2007, she began her
fashion career working under French designer Christian
Audigier. While working for four years as his Global Creative
Director, Meskita developed her use of traditional shapes and
tailoring. Meskita then decided to take everything she learned
and branch out to create her own clothing line, MESKITA, in
Meskita is the designer of her self-titled fashion and lifestyle
brand, MESKITA. The line consists of ready-to-wear, resort,
lingerie, swimwear, shoes and household accessories. Meskita’s
designs focus on simple concepts and natural elements
