Fabric choosing (BA)

There’s a good thing to live in Guangzhou, China, is the massive resource of fabric and materials for fashion design. The “wonderland” in Chinese is called 中大国际轻纺城. It took me nearly a week to get the right fabric because the market is so big, and not a lot of fabric shop do small order like I did. I bought each of the swimming suit fabric for 12 meters, and 16 meters for red silk fabric. This is a fun and hard process, I get up 7 in the morning, catch the bus, get to the market and select all kinds of fabric. Normally they won’t tell me the price because I’m a student, so I have to pretend that I’m working in a company 😀
Any way, the digital print of the lion is my main inspiration picture, so I use it as print for main design. At the same time, I choose similar colour fabric to go with it.I really love how the red silk look, it’s also digital print fabric, especially when I put it in the model, the natural textile and colour feels really expensive and creative. If it’s now, I will make a better use of it.
