Last week at Mexx at the Start of the week, I attended the proto meetings for the Youth Fall 15 ranges. The meetings lasted all day and literally run through all the pro-types of the designs that have been sent back to suppliers. All the department sat around a big table and discussed the prototypes, commenting on the design, quality, material, colour etc. Within these meetings everyone decides what changes need to be made for the garment to sell when it hits the high street. I enjoyed sitting in the meetings as it was good to hear a range of opinions and gave me a deeper insight into the process of the fashion industry.
Also this week I helped with adjusting colour swatches of designs in Illustrator. Towards the end of the week I started to experiment designing photo prints for t-shirts with paints. I haven’t got any photos from this week as I’ve broken my phone :(
