I am currently looking at the 1960s for my inspiration for my final fashion collection. I have taken my main source of inspiration from the 1960s futuristic space race fashion. The photo below is some on my first initial fabric manipulation samples inspired from this era, made with metallic silver fabrics.I think fabric manipulation is a great way to create new textiles and layers into a garment. Also fabric manipulation can make a simple silhouette into a more visually unusual and interesting garment. The fabric I have uses is from fabric land in Brighton which is great for cheaper experiments with fabric before moving your sample samples and garments.
