Fashion as Narrative

24th April 2019

Photography and Media Make-up students came together to collaborate on a project as part of their studies. The Fashion as Narrative project introduced the idea of working towards a client’s specification whilst working alongside the students’ own fashion ideas. 

The Level 2 students were given the opportunity to take on a brief from planning to shooting and editing, taking place within a tight time-frame of only a couple of academic days. The Level 2 students from both departments were given the opportunity of working together, giving them a natural experience of what would naturally be found within the photographic and make-up industry, whilst building their portfolios for after graduation.

As part of the project, the students were introduced to the different types of lighting that would be used within a professional photographic studio and were taught about the various styles of portraiture that would be featured if working in the industry. 

Photography student, Abby-Gail Shaw, found the collaboration “different and exciting. It gave an idea of what and how we would take photos for people in the industry when we start our career in photography. It also gave us an idea on timing to get things completed to a deadline”.

Georgina King, Photography lecturer commented on the outcome of the project, saying “I am extremely proud of the professional manner they have all worked within, the results they have achieved and how much they have learnt”.
