Industry Sponsored Design Brief //
The festival atmosphere was the inspiration for this high-summer capsule collection for French Connection. The brand celebrates balancing new and exciting ideas offering a fashion-forward clothing range with a quirky spin on design.
Choosing to overlook the clichéd music festivals I instead decided to focus on the rather alternative Bristol Balloon Festival to create my festival-themed wardrobe, taking inspiration from parachutes, party balloons and a fairground theme, incorporating fun elements to make my festival wardrobe more fantastical.
The silhouette for the collection has been informed by draping a parachute, resulting in voluminous pieces in lightweight fabrics alongside embellished and strapped garments.
