These are some of my ideas to explore further ideas that I could do in the future for improvements or other pathways I could go for. I expanded on the ideas of Collage/photoshoot ideas where I looked deeper into the lighting choices I could do for my photoshoot of the final product. I could have different dress concepts and take photos with different lighting, and I could group them into sections and make small albums. I could choose other background props to make the dress stand out and look appealing to others. Then I looked at the other material I could use in the future to make the dress feel more comfortable and be more durable to fulfill my success criteria. The possible primary material I wanted to explore deeper into is chiffon because it is sheer but has a rough feel to it. It can also have different colors, and it is slightly shimmery, so it looks high-class. I also think that chiffon seems pretty appealing, especially when it drags to the floor or is under specific lighting. I compared two materials together, Nylon and Chiffon, and I created a brief poster for possible future materials. Lastly, I explored the ideas for design ideas of the dress. My favorite idea incorporates the main three elements of chiffon, long length, and caution tape. If I could change the top section to something plain or something different, then leave a long trail of chiffon with ripped and holes dragging behind the dress with tape to cover it up, the video would have more meaning to it like “to cover up the scars in the past. ” This was the dress could look even more high class and spread the message of confidence more.
This design creates a dress that involves raising awareness about girls’ power and confidence with their bodies. I was most confident with this idea initially since it was my first idea, and I wanted to do something related to fashion and designing a dress. Something that is most important about this design and that most people liked was the message that making girls feel powerful and high class promotes confidence. I wanted to create this design because I wanted to make girls confident with their bodies, and I might collaborate with We for She with something? I am not sure yet, I will think about it. I want to interview other high school girls on a Microsoft forms document to get the “definition” of beauty in this context. I could do more research about the history of clothing sending messages. I am most hesitant about this design because it does clearly address a problem to the world, but it can address issues to social life, and other people expect girls to have the perfect body and comment on their bodies. This design can give me the most creative area because I can start from the beginning about how I want to promote this dress.
This design is creating a dress that is related to Christmas. It will involve the colors red and white and maybe some green to get into the Christmas spirit. In this design, I could do more research on exploring different cultures of the Christmas aesthetic. I could also be creating this for the choir during the Christmas concert, but I don’t know if I can make that many in a short amount of time. I will also investigate the different problems connected to Christmas outfits, like consumption or cultural questions. Angela, part of Aperture, also invited me to have a photoshoot with the girls in the photo studio. This will be for Christmas photoshoots or other events if you would like. It won’t be something casual that you wear day-to-day unless you want it, but it will be a little bit extra.
This design is to create a bag to reduce the use of plastic bags when we are shopping. This can be adjusted according to other people’s preferences. I could have some designs, and they can be sold when people order them. In design, these bags can be separated into different categories in size, material, or culture. This can be changed according to the demand of customers. If I make this something that can be sold, I can receive orders and create them during class or in my own time. I will try to make them easier to develop and use less time to start more. This design is most related to the criteria of this assessment, but I think it isn’t enough challenge for me and create something that doesn’t involve a lot of details.
