Featuring the Work of Year One Fashion Design Student Jasmine Aldridge

Third of three mini insights into our Year One Fashion Design students’ inaugural project Original Copy.

Capitalising on her 0 waste attitude to design Jasmine’s collection from reclaimed shirts ensures collars, plackets, cuffs and pockets all have an extra place in her deconstructed designs.

Taking inspiration from her parents first-hand experience of the 1980s Jasmine indulged in the WSA library’s vast collection of 80s i-D magazines and documentaries to develop a collection that clashes Punk with the Memphis design movement in the style of her designer of choice Ahluwalia.

The pieces feature alternative seams, buckles and fastenings with clashing colours, haphazard arrangements and strong shapes.
