During a four-week long period, the second year BA Womenswear students had to answer the question, “What is the contemporary definition of tailoring?” by designing and creating a fully styled outfit. Through exploring alternative construction and different draping methods, the aim was to incorporate a creative, visual concept with traditional tailoring techniques. As the crit went on, the students shared their projects, which explored everything from Cambridge freshers rituals, to packaging designs and distorted Instagram selfies. We were there to see (and capture), why the sowing machines in the cramped fashion studios had been getting so hot for the last month.
