In a fashion illustration course, we were assigned a group project in which we had to come up with an original design concept and collection of swimwear for Nike Swim based on the theme of "power". This collection had to include pieces for men, women, and children in different price/sport categories. My group and I were inspired by the elemental power of a volcano. We used this inspiration as the storyline for our swimwear designs and patterns. From this project, I got the experience of working on a design team and learned how to come up with a concept based on research of a brand as well as garment construction and functionality. Upon completing the project, our designs were presented to a team of designers at the Nike Swim headquarters.
