A Report from a Student Who Designed NBA Jersey

As a student major in the fashion design, from my perspective there is nothing more meaningful and interesting to design a clothes that has no equal in this world. However, I know that it is a long way to go. So I want to be inspired to a certain extent, to design a NBA jersey.

For one thing, I design this jersey is out of some reason. We are totally acknowledged that one period is exactly corresponding to one type sculpture as well as one style clothing and gradually, as we all known, becoming a kind of era characteristic or even representative in the angle of view of our modern people. Here comes a question: why this particular objective becomes a trend of that time? Obviously, the particular one can’t be just appeared with one single competitors. On the contrary, there must be in an incredible numbers who are trying to be a trend of the day. But they failed except the only one who we know and learn nowadays. Seriously speaking, the lesson here is hard to tell, but we at least acquire a little, namely, to cater to people’s taste of the day. That is to say, when we are supposed to design a dress, one important thing we must consider is the time background of that clothing. For instance, when you are living in a city full of high buildings and modern cars, you then can never have such a plan to design a clothes suitable for the ancient dynasties. What I am trying to say here is, it is reasonable to do something in tune with the times.

For another thing, through the process I designed the jersey I realize one crucial thing we need to focus on, that is, to make good use of human’s psychology and habit. Most time people’s judge to a clothing depends on many elements such as the light, visual angle, and first impression, definitely it is both related to human’s psychic effect and daily habit. We are just not to mislead people by taking advantage of such properties but to improve our works in different ways. Let me set an event as an example, once the non-mainstream things like the blast hair, bell-bottomed pants and so on are regarded as the symbol of the rebel youth or bad guys.

However, as time goes, non-mainstream has become popular and fashionable all over the world, so does my jersey. Frankly speaking, it is concerned about the change of people’s concept, but we have to admit that the guy who tries to change people’s concept must have paid much attention to the psychology controlling. We can’ t judge it right or wrong, but at least the non-mainstream objectives must be improved subtly in some respects along with people’s concept change.

Maybe my report is not the most wonderful one, but I have quite learnt a lot in the process of jersey designing. Designing a good jersey is never an easy thing, I’ve been always looking for my own way and going better and better in the future.
