This project is also industry based but this time with Johnstons of Elgin. The theme for this project is ‘New Scottish Look’, designing for Autumn/Winer 2015. Johnstons of Elgin thrive on ‘Made in Scotland’ and their heritage so it is important that the collection has a scottish theme. I have been inspired by the Scottish landscape, cool tones and grey skies but combining it with a plaid. I’m inspired by the idea of giving this traditional tartan a contemporary feel through the colour palette I am using. Because I am a knit student I am also starting to think about how I could combine a tartan idea into knit along with other structured stitches like cables. The end result for this project will be an accessory.
All my research came from, WGSN, Trendland, Style.com & Trend Tablet.
