It was an absolute pleasure for Luisa Figueroa and Mark Richardson from My Little Love Heart to present the Fabric Design Competition brief to the design students of SAE Creative Media Institute at their Perth Campus.
The competition is for the students to produce a fabric design that would be a suitable inclusion to the range of prints that My Little Love Heart use in the manufacturing of their hand-made baby accessories brand. They are tasked to come up with three designs that are unique, original and either suitable for a baby boy, baby girl or unisex.
During the brief, students were shown previous and current fabrics that are being used by the My Little Love Heart brand. They were also shown a range of products including Teething toys, Baby Bibs, Bandana Bibs, Burp Cloths, Baby Headbands, Top Knots and Baby Shower Gifts that are currently being manufactured. The students were advised that when designing the fabrics, they should consider the variety of sizes of the finished product and how the fabrics will look once the manufacturing process has been completed.
Both the SAE Creative Media Institute and My Little Love Heart are enthusiastic and eager to work together. Luisa from My Little Love Heart commented “We are always on the lookout for stylish and trendy fabrics, we want to stay at the forefront of design and wanted to work with Perth’s up and coming designers who are up-to-date with the latest trends. This competition allows us to access a large pool of amazing designers and gives local design students an avenue to show their amazing skills”. Edna, Design Lecturer with SAE Creative Media Institute agreed adding “We are thrilled to be working with My Little Love Heart; they produce an amazing range of quality products and this competition allows our students to work with an up-and-coming brand. It is a great opportunity for them to work on real projects that will go into production and made available for all to see. Plus it will really add credibility to their portfolios!”
Final submissions are required by the 15th September with the winners announced on the 22nd September. The winning designs will be printed in October with product available in November throughout My Little Love Heart’s stockist’s and online at https://www.mylittleloveheart.com.au
