    JOHN GALLIANO
         •    One of the most influential designers of our time.
         •    He is known for creating some of the most spectacular fashion shows in recent years.
         •    John Galliano’s varied life has had a direct influence on the vivid colours he uses in his
              collections.
         •    He launched his own label before becoming chief designer of France's haute couture
              flagship, Christian Dior, in Paris.
         •    John Galliano found his first signature mark through strong and personal collections.
         •    His sense of elegance and his proud tender vision of women made him a popular designer.
         •    His collections have always been considered as romantic, this is evident in his Autumn/winter
              collection 2001 which was a combination of high-tech modernity and romance.
         •    Features of some of his earlier collections include jackets worn upside down and inside out,
              with romantic organdie shirts.
         •    He accessorised his collections with everything from magnifying glasses, smashed and worn
              as jewellery to rainbow-coloured ribbons sewn onto the insides of coats.
         •    Galliano reinvented the 1930s-line bias-cut dress and made it modern, he is also known for
              creating narrow, very feminine tailoring.

    VIVIENNE WESTWOOD
        •   Vivienne Westwood has been at the centre of British fashion for 34 years and is one of its
            most inventive and influential designers.
        •   Vivienne Westwood first started selling her outrageous clothes in the shop ‘Let it Rock’ owned
            by her partner Malcolm McClaren.
        •   The ‘punk style’ gained notoriety when clothes designed and made by Westwood were worn
            by groups such the Sex Pistols and the New York Dolls.
        •   ‘Punk Style’ clothing featured skin tight leather clothing with tons of zips trimmed with items
            such as safety pins, bicycle chains and spiked dog collars worn as jewellery.
        •   She combined traditional elements of British design, such as tartan and Harris Tweed,
            alongside the more unusual elements of her style, which made the overall effect more
            shocking.
        •   A historical influence has always shown in her work, such as the corset and crinoline – taking
            original cutting principles and modernising them.
        •   Other influences in her work include ethnic Peruvian influences, feminine figure, velvet and
            knitwear.
        •   Her Ready-to-Wear collections feature style details such as ripped hems and torn seams.
        •   The tube skirt is one of her most successful and commercial designs.
        •   Westwood re-launched the corset, which Karl Lagerfeld described as one of the most
            important fashion ideas of the 20th century.

UNIT 2: TEXTILES TECHNOLOGY: CONTROLLED ASSESSMENT

Sample of information sent to centres. This information would be sent to centres by September
1st 2010 for assessment that is completed in July 2011.

    Controlled Assessment Task
    It is a requirement of the specification that candidates complete a 30 hour design, make
    and evaluate task. Teachers are required to monitor and verify that the time limit is
    adhered to and that the contributions of individual candidates are recorded accurately and
    that plagiarism does not take place.

    Candidates will not gain additional credit by exceeding the time limit.

    The task can be carried out in the normal classroom/workshop environment.

    Candidates are allowed supervised access to resources that may include information
    gathered outside the 30 hours of controlled assessment time.

    Candidates may gather research/inspirational material prior to or during the assessment
    period and this can be referred to during the task but this material is not to be included in
    the material to be assessed. Graphical work which has been prepared in advance by
    the candidate as part of an ongoing workbook or research, cannot be included as
    part of the material assessed for the control assessment task.

    Candidates may collaborate/confer with others in relation to the task but all assessed
    material must be the candidates' work only.

    The supervising teacher can give candidates limited guidance during the task in order to
    clarify what is to be done and to ensure that safe working practices are adhered to.

    All graphical and written work entered for this controlled assessment must be submitted on
    the pre-printed pages which are available for download from the WJEC website.
    Candidates are free to use ICT applications where they are appropriate.

    It is the responsibility of the centre to ensure the reliability and authenticity of all work
    presented for this controlled assessment. Teachers and students will be required to sign a
    declaration that all work presented is the work of the candidate alone. Failure to
    authenticate the work may result in grades being delayed or refused.


        Further details of the assessment process, including the assessment criteria, can
        be found in Section 5 of the Specification for Design and Technology.
            GCSE DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY – TEXTILES Specimen Assessment Materials 41
The Controlled Assessment Task is divided into two sections.

Section A is concerned with designing the product.

       Generating Ideas                       10 Marks
       Developing and Modelling a solution 25 Marks
       Communicating the Final Solution       10 Marks
       Demonstrating Creative Thinking         5 Marks    Throughout

Section B is concerned with planning, making and evaluating the product.
Marks will be awarded for :-
       Planning the make                      10 Marks
       Making the Product                     90 Marks
       Evaluation of the Product              10 Marks
       Suggesting Improvements                10 Marks

When completing the Controlled Assessment Task candidates should :-

   •   contextualise the chosen brief;
   •   design creatively by generating, developing, planning and communicating ideas;
   •   make products by working safely with tools, equipment, components, materials
       and ingredients;
   •   apply systems and control. CAD/CAM, digital media and new technologies
       appropriate to the focus area;
   •   analyse and evaluate processes and products.


       Teachers or candidates, in consultation with their teachers, should choose
       one of the Briefs set out below.


Brief 1:      FASHION
              Fashion is constantly changing and the demand for innovative new styles
              ever increasing. A local store, specialising in promoting the work of local
