From feedback that I need to use my research to inform my shape and silloheutte of the garment I concentrated on using the idea of bloom and growth of flowers both contextually and physically to progress my project. Researching Rwanda's growth came across an article discussing the importance of the banana tree to Rwanda's source of wealth. used my own imagery from Rwanda to enforce the importance of the bona trees and began to collage and design using the shapes of the leaves and bunches of bananas to inform. I have learnt that I need to work more throughly into my drapes to and make my designs more readable to communicate my ideas clearer using my research imagery as backup and reference in my sketchbook. Want to go to plastic workshop tomorrow to work on Petra's suggestion of turning the idea of orangic in my project on its head and creatingng some plastic textile samples
