After finishing the "wearable shelter" we took it outside to test its strength and see how it would resist in an urban context.

After going through all sorts of ideas, from a purse which can turn into a carpet, to big hats which cover the whole body, we've decided to produce an umbrella chair and a big skirt which is, in fact, a tent.

On our third meeting we went to Grumpy, where we have looked through all sorts of recycled materials and decided which ones would be the best for our wearable shelter. It was a fun day, as we also had the opportunity to play with the materials and create test models.

I found the meeting with Dr. Annie Shaw truly inspiring, as she told us about her background and how she got to work in the field of fashion.She listened to our ideas and she helped us with our design, by giving us advice regarding the materials and different techniques for making clothes.

At our first group meeting we got to know each other and understand better the notion of "wearable shelter". After that we were paired in groups of two, sketched some outfits and discussed our ideas.
