Work > Welcome to Kingswood!: Ultimate School Uniform

Designs for Student Welcoming Committee Uniforms at Cranbrook / Kingswood High School.

I challenged Cranbrook Kingswood weaving students to design their Ultimate School Uniform. The results are pulled from their brainstormed ideas of 'emergency skirt pockets', the need for upbeat music in-between classes, pencil and pen pockets, and lots of protection from the elements waiting for the bus. They had one other stipulation: they had to think about welcoming fellow students into the halls of the school. So the Student Welcoming Committee Uniforms were born!

This was a great project to source student collaboration and talk about a specific cultural need of high school students in general.

Later in April 2012 the Kingswood students will be performing the uniforms that I made from their designs. Video to follow.
