It is important to me that my design journey and garments tell a story, whether it be my own or someone/something else. ‘When the Curtains Rise’ was to celebrate the make do and mend era of the 1940s, and how families were creative and smart with what was available to them during difficult times. In this project I explored popular clothing worn by families and what materials were used/up-cycled during this era, as well as comparing to what the royals were wearing during the same time period.
