Manchester Metropolitan University: Jonathan Ferris Pre Interview Work (15098681)

Key Images that describe my Influences:


The images above show my influences for the "Distortion" Project. Images include Alien, Point Break, Francis Bacon, Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Elephant Man.


The mood board above was for the "Headwear" Project. My starting point was based around the idea of the hunter becoming the hunted. It was entitles "The Huntsman".


Thom Browne's animal kingdom for AW14 Menswear was a huge influence to my project as was various things Alexander McQueen done. Dante and Widows of Culloden were key, as were a few headpieces from when Sarah Burton took the reigns.


Here is my mind map and mood board for the "Paper Dress" Project. Because it was approaching 150 years since Alice and Wonderland, I decided to base my project on it.


The above image was from the "Urban Environment" Project, my most recent work. I took the photo on the left from Ropewalks in Liverpool, the Graffiti in that area was what influenced the rest of my project.

Images based on the Development of sketchbook work:


Above shows the design sketches of my mask for the "Distortion" project.


The above image shows emulsion transfers and mono-prints, with nature inspired experiments on top. Leaves, crushed pine cones and sticks from trees.


Here are my design sketches for the "Headwear" Project, as you can see I was basing my project off of antlers and horns.


Here are some paper samples based on repetition and the chessboard as seen on Alice in Wonderland. 


Above are a selection of design sketches for my "Paper Dress" Project.


I developed my initial concept of graffiti by returning to Ropewalks and choosing specific pieces of graffiti to take my project further.


Above are examples of testing to get the perfect colour for transferring my image onto neoprene. 


...I used photo-transfer paper, and the grid print is the photo-transfer paper.


Above are some design sketches for the "Urban Environment" Project. They were based on both graffiti and skate culture, as you can see in the shapes.

Images of my finished work:


Here is my final piece for the "Distortion" Project. Photographed in a sort of ad campaign style. It was based on the distorted (almost) Alien actions of mental patients. The mask shows a split personality.


Here is my fashion illustration of the set of masks I made for the "Distortion" Project. I shown more than one image (More in the background) to show more personalities.


Here is one of the three dresses I made for the "Paper Dress" Project. It is entitled the "Wonderland" Dress.


Here are the other two I designed and made. The first is entitled the "Game of Chess" Dress and the second, the "Alice" Dress. I used samples from earlier on in the project and just enlarged them to fit a person's body.


Here is a fashion illustration I done for the "Paper Dress" project. The pastel pink background resembled that of tea party.


Here is the logo I used for my crop-top. I needed to reverse the text so it would transfer correctly onto my garment.


Here, above is an image of the whole of the crop-top I made. Inspired by graffiti and skate culture.


Here is a detailed image of part of the crop-top. This isn't my own design, but this everywhere close to the area I live and thought it would quite cool to use.


Here are a detailed image of the matching shorts I made.

  1. I am using these images to help my examination students in China, they tend to use pre-made images, or lengthy, tidy copy images this will encourage them to emphasise the real intentions in their work. THANK YOU!
