These Times and How We Maintained focus
Jessica Westlake’s graduating project
From growing up in a small town in the south west, there wasn’t a large variety of job opportunities for young adults. I decided to work in bars and restaurants. The coast, not far away, was bustling with more people than my small town, it was where I worked in a bar.
I enjoyed working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, as I gained confidence from working in this environment.
Gaining confidence, I started working at a more sophisticated cocktail bar to build my experience and knowledge.
I Worked in the ‘Sunset Lounge’ cocktail bar.
I could visualise my knitwear displayed in this space, overlooking the coast, with the sunlight glistening beside my collection.
I want my designs and products to be fit for the market which socialise in the cocktail bar scenes.
I want to explore the vibrant colours, shapes and lines of the citrus fruits I used in the cocktails because they demonstrate a fun colour palette which will be utilised within my collages and knitting.
