The London College of Fashion



As the weather in London has been so awful lately here in London, my colleague and I decided to take our second group of Fashion Retail Branding and Visual Merchandising students to explore the rich resources of the Natural History Museum here in London. The students were tasked to create a series of observational drawings from some of the exhibits which included the most incredible natural forms such as corals and fossilised plants, crystals and prehistoric skeletons. The aim of the process was to enable students to further develop their observational drawing skills and then begin to move from the two dimensional drawings into three dimensional models in a series of materials. This helps to enable students to understand the concept of space, shape and form and how this can be utilised with a commercial environment as well as beginning to understand the constraints of a variety of materials.
