Discovered Shoot Done & Dusted, Next Stop FashionTV!

Last Friday a troupe from Designer Direction partnered up with some great people in the industry to shoot the three Discovered winners collections at Kingsize Studios. We had some good times, everyone was well fed (and yes, the models ate too) and the fruit of our labour is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Haylee Barry – “Tu Meke” 

“My final collection Titled TU MEKE was based on 1980’s oversized fashion. Focusing on bold block shape and colour.”

Alana Bishop – “Stretch Me”

“One word to sum up my collection ‘Stretch Me’ would be elongation. The idea was to create an illusion through clothing. The collection itself was created in a meticulous and focused manner, using curious tailoring and unusual proportions whilst keeping order and structure, resulting in humorously classic collection.”

Victoria Green – “Lone Wolf”

“My A/W 2009/2010 menswear capsule collection had in mind a particular silhouette, fabrics that had been hand dyed and washed along with using digitally printed garments. My ambitions for this collection were to emphasise the prints from photographs I had taken, to work alongside the hand dyed garments.”
