Things to Consider:
• Communication: Ensure that your concept is clear, responds to the brief and stands out from the crowd. Tell us what the story you want to tell is, why you chose the materials and what you want people to think or feel when they see your piece.
• Sustainability: As well as ensuring you use recycled materials as the key element think of how you could reduce the amount of new materials you need to make the piece, this is really crucial when it comes to our coherence of message with the external world.
• Wow-factor: what would make people stop on the street and take a picture of your outfit?
