Industry project – Johnstons of Elgin

Mood board idea2Mood board idea1mood board a3 colour mergeFinished one project and straight onto the next!

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, & Trend Tablet.
