We had a post screening before the main screening on June 24th just incase there was any changes that anyone would have liked to make or any interviews that wanted to be added in, there were a few tricks made here and there but all in all it was a beautifully made movie, the editing was fantastic everything was clean cut and created with the best equipment and you can really tell when you watch the movie.
We haven’t seen the final edit but i know we are all excited to see the final outcome.
The few changes that were made is going to make the movie that much more brilliant, I can’t wait for the movie to come out.
On Tuesday 24th the students that didn’t have the opportunity to attend the deconstruction workshop at the Museum of London with Tim Long because of interviews that they need to attend were given a second chance!!
What was created was absolutely incredible!
” Deconstruction Fashion – The Making of Unfinished, Decomposing and Re-assembled clothes”- M.Barnard
“I had fun exploring the jackets layers and was very creative in terms of constructing it into something new. It was hard to rip it at first because I thought it was such a waste of money but was definitely worth it.” – Jaybee
“I found it to be lots of fun an I enjoyed the freedom to experiment” – Moon
“I found it fun I was able to bring my creativity out” – Amy

“Its was a good way to experiment with styling and I never knew a jacket can look different” – Wuzzy
“It wasn’t my favourite workshop so far but I did like do the task and looking at the before pictures to see the transformation” – Nina
“I liked seeing how the jacket was constructed but wasn’t that great at creating something new” – Brianna
Not only did we do interviews on this day but we also had the opportunity to meet and talk to a student at LCF (London College of Fashion) studying menswear, she gave a talk about the the final year that she is in currently and the how it is all going. She is currently working on a 18 piece collection and she is running out of time and she made sure to stress to us that time management is KEY!!

We also spoke to a man called Tim Wang who also did menswear that had left LCF 2 years ago and we all wanted to know how the transition is like finishing your time at LCF and moving on into the real world, what we got from him was that it wasn’t easy and you wouldn’t get a job straight away, you have to do internships and really build up your relationships to get into the industry. He also showed us his final collection at LCF.

After the talk with the two LCF students half of us had to go and do interviews and the other half would stay and do a deconstructive workshop!

We also learned how the collar in a jacket was made, for most it was difficult because we had to get the hang of how they are made by professionals and to get the perfect shape for a collar but we later go the hang of it.
