FAUX / REAL A/W 11-12

Trend setting involves colour, fabric and shape forecasting. 
The faux/real trend involves textured, flexible, irridescent and woven fabrics. Colours will be metallic or neutral, ranging through grey, brown and green hues as well as others.

Fabrics used in the trend are generally used to change the shape of the body using geometric shapes or by clinging to it. 

On this trend board we have used varying examples of fabrics, textured papers, colours and images all relevant to the up and coming trend.
The bunting idea allows designers and fabric buyers to interact with the fabric.

Through studying Ancient Greece in my Creative Design Practices module I have focused on the significance of the bull in Greek society and mythology.
Bull and cattle were a crucial part of society as they fed the people and were seen as powerful creatures that were close to the Gods.
The Minotaur, is said to have been half man, half bull and was born to Queen Pasiphae of Crete after she supposedly coupled with a bull.
The King of Crete later built a labyrinth that was the lair of the minotaur, the King sacrificed many of his people to appease the bull.
