Betafashion design competition:Dreaming in Colour!

Since stopping my freelance job for my new job I have been at a loss with what to do with my spare time, so I decided to enter a design into a competition on betafashion.com. 

This was the brief:

DREAMING IN COLOUR
Taking inspiration from trans-dimensional dreaming and futuristic utopias, the challenge for this project is to create prints for our S/S14 womenswear collection using freedom of colour and mind and lucid dreaming to create new universes that will transform the collection into a contemporary, innovative and beautiful work of art.

We are looking for a combination of placement and repeating prints to be applied to the collection which will consist of jersey and woven dresses and separates.

8 winners will be selected, each receiving £500 and seeing their designs go on to form part of the collection which will be sold in our online store as well as some of the world's largest fashion retailers. Where possible the names of the winning designers will be presented alongside the collection at point of sale, as well as to the fashion press.


Below are the images eta provided to use as inspiration for this project.They are extremely similar to the images used in WGSN's cosmic folk trend prediction for next year, photos of which I have also posted below.

Not only would it be amazing for me to win £500 if my design gets chosen, it would also be a great opportunity for me to get my design work featured in thebetafashion collection. As I have been doing so much research on this topic in my spare time I am hoping that this will increase my chances of reaching the final 8!
