Here are some photos of the models and the costumes.. And here are some way overdue photos that we took during our meeting with our advisor, Chuan who were accompanied by Ling Ling also on the Thursday, May 7, 2009.Love, Amin
Thursday Plan !
Alrite guys, please please do your homework by finding research about fabrics and stuff. We need to find out what materials suit our costumes. And I agree with Luke we should head down to Laselle to see their fashion show because their concept is quite similar to us because they're doing a 30 minute fashion show. And I got to show to you guys the floor plan A.S.A.P Also, the Poster for the models should be up by this week so that we can mass mail it to the school by next MONDAY. Need some help for the design for the poster. Let's Do It Guys! Focus!

URGENT! Monday Meeting!
Sorry for the miscommunication guys, but we have to meet after school on monday to discuss lots of stuff. I've got alot to update so please make it on Monday after school okay? Do you think it's better to consult Chuan for this meeting, or maybe we'll include him in our next next meeting on Thursday?
Here are some pictures during the 2 FYP teams meet-up.
Sound engineers + Designers = Fashion Show

Think of keywords from ur designs to fit into music
Advertise poster for model casting
Get mannequin mini dolls for prototype (Luke)
Jaw dropping info.
Hey guys, I found this great fashion blog for the elderly! It will really help us to go further and not to restrict us from designing crazily and loud. Please please please do check them out! Awesome, it blew your mind. really really. http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com/
and also, check out this website where this designer, Fanny Karst, who designs clothes for elderly woman! Her recent collection, 'Old Ladies Rebellion' made me drop my jaw! What can I say, those cool old ladies rebelled, and hit the runway!
Thanks Luke! Alrite guys keep on sketching and do more research to justify and support ur sketches aite. As you all know we will be presenting and choosing 2 of our best sketches each and comment on them to further improve it on next Tuesday. We're right on track and let us be inspired!
Hey guys, here are some of the notes that i've took down during the meeting and hope we could all work together towards it. Have a great weekend ahead!
Why elderly are dressed in certain style?
User experience - how does the elderly feel when wearing?
Needs of elderly and how can we project that to our sketches
Why are we inspired by certain looks? e.g. from movies
body type and height of elderly
Theme for fashion show - according to seasons/age range?
personas of the elderly - characteristics
READY, SET GO!
Hey guys i think it's best if we could plan one of these days to visit the National Museum for this fashion exhibit that could benefit us in getting inspired for our FYP. FREE entry on 9 & 10 May. Entry, $8 on normal days up till 7 June. We'll discuss this further in this thursday's meeting.
OH SO FUTURISTIC!
Hey peeps, tot you guys would wanna know what futuristic fashion is all about. It is simply known as "AVANT GARDE" where the construction of costumes all OVER THE TOP! Though these garments seem impossible for elderly, let's think of how we could change it. For now, be amazed and get inspired!
Yes,although the model in the runway show are not that old.. And even though the clothes they wear are not meant for elderly people.. But I just want to show this video to get all of us inspired for OUR RUNWAY SHOW!
Enjoy Your Labour Day!!
Things To Be Done By 6th MAY
Alritee guys, as said by Raihanah in the previous post, please spam, spam and spam! (haha kidding).. ask your friends to do the our online monkey survey thingy aites!
Also not forgetting we need to do a survey on the elderly also! Try going around and ask the elderly these 2 questions aite!
1)Are you still keeping up with the latest trends?
2)What do you look for when you buy clothes? o Comfort o Aesthetics o Price o Brand
And do try to find uncle/pakcik out there who still dresses up cooly even though they're in their 40s and above and ask them the reason why they do that? If possible take photos of them or even record a video if you want to !
Remember we have until NEXT WEDNESDAY, to show Chuan our sketches and also to compile all the answers from our surveys and present it to him. We can do it guys! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! =D
Hey hey hey!
As you all know that we shall be conducting surveys to help our analysis,here's the link of the survey created that you could spam on your friends for them to do. And make sure they do!
