RSA Menswear project
Back to the fascinating portfolio of Tim Guilbride, and these menswear spreads were part of a project for the Royal Society of Arts Industrial Design Bursaries Competition. The designs were envisaged as workwear for a professional photographer in three varying settings – a hot climate location, a cold climate location, and the studio.
As the label shown here indicates, Tim was 20 years old when he submitted these designs to the competition. Competitions such as these were a major component of life at Kingston, and many of the students would enter (and often win) such competitions every year.
