This morning we had the briefing for BA2B, this is quite a lot to take in! there are quite a few different sections to this unit, which is making me very excited to start but I also know that I need to be very on top of my time management to make sure that I get it all done. I am not sure how I feel about the collaboration project but I will wait until we start that to make my judgements, for now I will work on the other projects.
We also had a library session today about paraphrasing, I found this a good session as I learnt more about how to paraphrase and how to use it to the best of my advantage. I also enjoyed playing with the LEGO!
Todays lecture was the last of the business start up lectures, these have been really helpful and very informative, as I want to set up my own business once I graduate these sessions have been very beneficial. They have been really interactive and allowed us to be creative in a different way to our courses.
The past two days I have spent doing research and deciding on which competitions I want to work on, I have decided the YKK brief looking at millinery inspired by industrial works and then the Clarks brief designing bridal shoes, I will talk to my tutor on Friday and see what she thinks and then I will be straight onto the rest of the work.
Todays session on our research reports was really helpful we had both our essay tutor and textiles tutor going through everything with us for our research report proposals and answering any questions that we had. They then came round and saw is in small groups to discuss what we thought we would be writing our reports on. I have decided to write mine all about sustainability throughout the bridal industry, as this is the route I plan to take in my future I feel that this will be the most valuable topic for me to cover as well as being one that I will enjoy researching and furthering my understanding of. Over the next few weeks I will begin my research and begin writing my research report proposal ready for hand in.
Todays individual tutorial was interesting, we mostly just talked about the last unit and then also discussed the courses I am hoping to take part in the summer which was really helpful but we also talked about third year after I said that I wanted to do a sustainable bridal collection, I was then recommended that I don’t do a complete bridal collection instead focus on bridal competitions and do something else as my collection, this was really hard to hear as I know that the wedding industry is going to be where I end up and want to spend my time focusing and exploring the bridal industry and gaining new skills, but at the same time I know that the advice was given for a reason, so I will have to think about this a lot and decide the route I want to go with my graduate collection but for now I need to focus on completing year 2!
