Style features at Christian Dior
HNC learners should be reviewing ideas for the panelled dress that they will be making in the forthcoming weeks. Take a look at current collections to analyse how designers work with style details such as panels, tucks, quilting and embellishment - all ideas that we have been exploring in class sessions - to consider how to refine ideas to create a garment that is contemporary, interesting and wearable in its cut. The following images are from Christian Dior, AW14, Paris With clear bright colours and clever silhouettes the collection features twists on quilting, sports style lacing and the use of tucks to add fullness, shape and volume.
