My project this year was to upcycle and repurpose an old item and create a new purpose and love for the object. I decided to take a mini basketball and turn it into a trendy bag. I wanted to create a one-off fashion piece. My inspiration for my bag came from the artist and the designer Chesley Bonestell and Andre Courreges. I chose these artists as my chosen theme is space. Their work displays futurism and space but in different aspects. They influence my final piece as I included forms of their work, however with my own vision. Throughout the year at college, I have obtained various skills and techniques that benefitted me. I am proud of the work that I have achieved throughout the year. In the future I am looking for a fashion apprenticeship that I can then expand into a full-time job in hopefully fashion and media.
