The second theme that I looked at is royal I found this theme very interesting as I have always been fascinated with what the past women used to wear, more so of the social society reputations how women had to dress within their money status, it is intriguing to see what the ancestors used to wear and how they have changed over time. I have focused my theme towards Greek Mythology and ancient Egyptian what their goddesses would wear and how that is implied to women in modern day.
When I was browsing on Pinterest I found Greek fashion very interesting and inspirational, I mainly focused on the royal gowns. I also had another theme that I would like to combine which is plus size I feel in the fashion market there’s still a gap within plus size. There are not that many garments or designers that specialise in creating garments for curvy women which leads to these women struggling to find clothes in store fit for their body shape. The main issue is many women not having garments that are made to truly be appealing on the figure. I feel by combining this within my theme of royal it will not only give it a unique turnout but it will also be a hidden message of accepting your body image. In my sketchbook I mainly focused on the pattern and texture mainly form crowns and antique wallpaper.
In conclusion, I did enjoy responding to this theme However, it was difficult to get primary images for this theme which would be the problem if I pick this theme for my final project and I do feel I am limited with what I can do within this theme as it is mostly designs and the only images I can use are mostly secondary and I will run out of ideas on what to do further with this theme as there is not much inspirational images expect for royal dresses and complex patterns that could be used within the design development stage.
