Fleurtopia

The creation of this concept was developed from the current situations happening all around the world. As we are consistently uncertain about things and trying to go back to our busy lives, we forget the joys we once had in childhood. This collection is called Fleurtopia.

In my final semester of university, we were given the task to create our own mini collection. We used manual skills as well as learnt CLO3d to create this collection. This collection I created was called Fleurtopia. 

The creation of this concept was developed from the current situations happening all around the world. As we are consistently uncertain about things and trying to go back to our busy lives, we forget the joys we once had in childhood. This collection will be called Fleurtopia, an assimilation of the French lexeme ‘fleur’ for flower and the lexeme ‘utopia’.

Sir Thomas More, a well-known figure in history writes about a world in which everything and everyone is perfect and equal. “A place of felicity” of intense happiness unlike what is the world is. Interpreted his book as imagining things and creating this fantasied world in which all our worries are left behind Thus, this collection will be based on the connection between what a utopic society is or could be. Defined as a place or state of imagination in which everything is perfect. So, I decided to think what type of world is perfect. This was difficult as the real world is constantly in turmoil. The only place that I believe was perfect was a fantasized world that is so easily imagined upon as a child of lands with fairies and beautiful fauna where there is peace and love.

To myself they are considered a utopic world that does not part of reality. I researched fairies, after finding painting of them I noticed that they always portrayed their clothing as draped, aesthetically pleasing and flowy so that was a main inspiration for me to use flowy materials and silhouettes. Then I delved into the fauna and flower and through this exploration developed a colour palette and print ideas. Further wanted to find embroidered fabric or create them to create that aspect of preciousness in which reflect the fairies one with nature and kindness.

Due to the short time frame of the collection, we were asked to create three look out of our six look collection. I decided to design develop the looks and create technical drawing so I knew what I had to pattern make on CLO3d.

With this collection, I used CLO3d software to design my own aesthetic and style. I experimented with CLO3d in replicating physical fabrics and trims through displacement and texture maps, digital pattern making, fit through fit maps and rendering the garments. 

After experimenting and using CLO3d, I created my collection physically using the patterns created through CLO3d.
