Embracing life with full colour, full styling, full creativity and full fun - that is what this project is all about. This project is like a collective exhale following a unique period of global constraint. It’s an almost-anything-goes, anti-conformist fashion direction that champions diverse and divergent perspectives and radical selfacceptance.
Full Spectrum embraces digital influences and joyful craft to create crochet designs that are expressive and celebratory, featuring vibrant colours, textures and patterns. With this project, the students explored the rise of craft core which is an expressive DIY aesthetic that combines activism and self-expression.
After exploring basic skills in designing and crocheting influenced by the fashion trend Full Spectrum, the students also explored fashion communication skills in product photography. The outcome was to create a decorative and brightly coloured handcrafted crochet bag based on the Full Spectrum theme. In addition to planning and producing a photoshoot to showcase their bag.
