  24. Collection Design Theme

  25. Hereros

  26. Hereros Decked out in voluminous Victorian-style dresses, complete with horn-shaped headgear, the Herero ladies of Namibia have held on tight to a piece of 19th century history. The 'Ohorokova', the traditional Herero dress, is a permanent reminder of the tribe's unsettling past and history. Their cultural dress is a continued protest against the Germans who almost exterminated the entire tribe in the genocide of 1904.

  27. StitchKit  StitchKit is a FashionTech kit created by MakeFashion  It began as STEAM workshops, introducing people to technology through fashion  StitchKit’s purpose is to reduce the barriers into technology and fashion

  28. Steampunk  Steampunk fashion is a subgenre of the steampunk movement in science fiction.  In the realm of fashion, a steampunk look is typically built on a Victorian silhouette, which means that women tend to wear corsets.  Because of the centrality of Victorian design, steampunk can be considered a neo-Victorian movement. In other words, steampunk combines the Victorian with the new.

  29. Here’s what you’ll do !  Create a miniature Fall/Winter 2019 Collection  Create at least 4 runway ready looks – up to 6  Create a cohesive collection using the Herero women and Steampunk fashion as inspiration  Your main neo-Victorian look must include StitchKit technology Pssst…. All fabrics and accessories will be provided!
