Redesign a piece of clothing in a way that changes its purpose. For example, deconstruct a winter jacket to make a summer dress. Document everything: your notes, brainstorming activities, sketches, changes made along the way, and the final redesign product. Be sure to complete the following steps while creating your redesign:
- In your sketchbook, add a picture of the original item you are redesigning before creating your new design.
- Your new design may be in the form of a drawing, a small model, or an actual product.
- Write an artist’s statement to go along with your redesign assignment. You artist’s statement should explain why you chose this piece of clothing to redesign, as well as what changes were made to the original clothing item and why you chose to make those changes.
