In the film she talks about what it takes to put on a good show, along with describing the process of placing her own artwork on to her clothes her has also designed. Each garment she makes is a ‘one off’. She describes her style as ‘not ‘perfect’, which she embraces. She reveals how she first got started and her own experiences at school, along with her first big break in the industry. This clip is from the BBC series What is Art? A collection of short films from the BBC following a day in the life of seven UK-based artists and designers For our What is Art? playlist: For our Art and Design playlist: For Class Clips users, the original reference for the clip was p03pdf48. ===================== Teaching Art and Design? This clip would prove a useful resource for a fashion design project with KS3. The pupils could be organised into small teams and set a brief to create their own fashion design houses. The teacher could outline a number of garments that they are going to create designs for. These could be existing garments with the emphasis on customisation, taking a cue from Claire’s anecdote about customising jeans when she was at school. Each group could be given a set of basic garments, such as t-shirts. The project could culminate with the class having a fashion show and sharing their work. This clip will be relevant for teaching Art and Design at KS3 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 3rd Level in Scotland. ===================== For more clips from other subjects at the BBC Teach YouTube channel: More from BBC Learning Zone: More resources from BBC Bitesize: ===================== Subscribe to create your own customised playlists, and get notified about our latest clips.
