Group Projects: theme: “Green”

Posted in Class Group Projects, Discuss This Display, Fashion 49 by Arcadia on April 3, 2012

Last week in class began the presentations of group projects.  Students have been working on their designs for the past two months and will be presenting their various projects for the next month.

We have six groups and this week’s theme was “Green” (my favorite topic).  Students showcased their ideas in a window, wall, table, cubes, and shelving unit.

Group 1 – Wall

Kindle is the product Group 1 chose to feature.

I love how they displayed all the paper content behind the Kindle as a butterfly!

Nice job Group 1!

My critique: the ivy isn’t necessary at the bottom of the display, and the Kindle icon should have been bigger.

Group 2 – Cubes

“Tea” and its many uses is what Group 2 chose to display.

Group 2 did nice job on this display!

This display almost became too fussy and overly embellished, but as they continued to work on it, I’m glad they took away a lot of the flowers and edited themselves.

Group 3 – Window

Reusable bags were their product of choice.

This is a case of not going far enough.  The dress they made for the mannequin is fantastic, but the display is too one-dimensional.  I would have liked to have seen more flowers spilling out of the bags, more bags around the floor – and at different heights.

Group 4 – Table

Clever idea to showcase “Green Fashion Design Classes”, as their green product!

This display is missing so much – patterns, books, fabrics, color!  It’s better to have too much and then have to pull back, than to do too little and look like an unfinished display.

Group 5 – Shelving unit

Group 5 is displaying jewelry made by one of their teammates – Shelby S.

Great Job Group 5!

The feedback they received from me as well as the class, is the background is too dark, making the jewelry difficult to see.

Group 6 – Cubes

I am beyond upset that none of my detail shots turned out as this was an excellent display.  Everything you see in the cubes, these girls made!!!  I thought they borrowed all the props from our local Origins store, but I was wrong.  The work is clean, well-edited, and professional looking.

What are you thoughts, how do you think they did for their first week?

    Good job everyone, lots more to learn but the learning journey has begun with some very interesting and exciting results. I particularly like the first and last project – your comments are spot on!
