The concept for my collection came from my interpretation and inspiration from an album, 'Astroworld' by the rapper, Travis Scott. Through the use of imagery and videos for this album I began my research into acid trips, rollercoasters and high intensity colour. My work is heavily inspired by my own illustrations I have created throughout my research process. Looking into the psychedelic art era and creative imagery of the key concepts of my collection, rollercoasters, decay, colour and acid trips, I found my illustrations then became the prints for my collection. I have specialised in Menswear for my final project, creating an urban streetwear collection that is everything my research has inspired. Using a variety of different skills, from Pattern Cutting to Print, Laser cutting, Knitting and Fabric Manipulation to help create the end result I was looking for. I have ensured my concept is evident within my collection from my use of colour, to strapping and harnessing detailing to mimic the track lines on rollercoasters. I have also used shape detailing for my button stands, psychedelic colours and laser cut collars/hems to give the viewer a sense of melting, which encapsulates my concept.
