Day 6 (Extension) – LCF Student Talk, Deconstruct Workshop and Jacket Collar Sampling

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.

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.IMG_0027
