Students’ jeans collections will be sold in Dubai’s market!
During the last weeks, the third year BA (Hons) Fashion with Textiles Design students have been challenged to design jeans collections for the Dubai’s market.
Last Friday, they presented their final works to Stefan Lohmann, Head of Pattern, Designs and Sales at Skytex. The project involved custom analysis, jeans trends analysis, final sketches, technical drawings and patterns.
The jeans collections of the winners, Myrthe van der Leden and Evelina Anglickaite, will be developed at the Academy under the guidance of Stefan Lohmann and sold in the Dubai’s market.
“The Amsterdam Fashion Academy is very proud of all four finalists, including Joanna Grice and Isabelle Wildenburg, for the professional and excellent work. It was a wonderful opportunity for them to work with a real client within our international fashion academy and grow professionally as fashion designers”, says Iris Peitzmeier, Managing Director.
On Monday, November 26th Stefan met again the students and offered them a workshop in advanced CAD and grading techniques with Assyst System. Stefan and the students made together the pattern of the final designs and chose the fabric. Then they will make the prototypes in Stefan’s factory to than create the actual fashion collection pieces.
“Evelina had a very commercial concept that fits perfectly in our collection so we would also do the styling in our collection to show it to our customers. Myrthe had a very good concept for our target group. I liked a lot her detailed presentation”, says Stefan Lohmann.
