The project involved several areas of study, integrating geography, history, culture, technology and art.

During this experience, students delved into the geography and history of London, exploring the most iconic neighbourhoods and understanding the city's cultural and historical evolution. They studied how London fashion has influenced and continues to influence global culture, with a particular focus on revolutionary figures such as Westwood and McQueen.

They also explored printing and fabric application techniques, understanding the importance of craftsmanship in fashion.

The support of stylists and a seamstress allowed them to combine theory and practice, resulting in customised garments reflecting the cultural and artistic influences studied. This interdisciplinary approach offered students a complete and integrated view of the fashion world, enriching their understanding not only of design techniques, but also of the historical and cultural context in which they originate and develop.

Fragrance making workshop

 

Through a practical workshop, the children worked on creating perfumes inspired by three cities. Starting from a brief, they used their senses to connect memories, ideas, and sensations, then moved on to selecting raw materials and preparing balanced formulas. All with the support of Melanie Duhamel from Mane.

Student began by exploring the historical origins of  fragrance making, understanding how different cultures have used and valued scents throughout history. This integration of history and geography provided a contextual background that enriched their experience.

Mathematics played a crucial role as well. The children learned to measure and mix ingredients accurately, using percentages to create balanced and harmonious scents. This practical application of math skills helped to reinforce their understanding of concepts in a real-world context.

The sensory aspect was particularly engaging. By using their senses of smell and touch, the children learned to identify and appreciate subtle differences in fragrances, enhancing their sensory awareness and descriptive abilities.

To conclude the workshop, the students created watercolors to design labels for their perfumes. This artistic endeavor allowed them to express their creativity while integrating the knowledge they had gained from the other disciplines.

The students delved into the culture of writing, exploring its historical roots and understanding the evolution of this artistic movement in cities.

The students studied how writing, music, writing and art influence each other, and how these forms of expression have shaped and continue to shape urban culture. With a focus on key figures in writing and Italian writing, such as Flycat himself, the students learned to see this art form as a powerful means of personal and collective expression.
They also explored writing techniques, understanding the importance of craftsmanship and technique in the creation of street art. The support of artists and teachers allowed them to combine theory and practice, resulting in customised projects that reflect the cultural and artistic influences they studied.

The project culminated in a fashion design work, in which the students revisited the BDC Schoocon uniform with a writing theme. This interdisciplinary approach offered the students a comprehensive and integrated view of the world of writing and fashion, enriching their understanding not only of artistic techniques, but also of the historical and cultural context in which they originated and developed.
