A Football Collection for a New, Imaginary Football Club

Year 3 Graduate Collection: Club Atlético Nueva Argentina de Rosario

Brief

Design a graduate collection of four outfits for a chosen sport. Start with two six-outfit pre-collections, one experimental and one functional. Merge them into one final graduate collection of four outfits. Construct and fully realise the four outfits.

Solution

Rosario is the third largest city in Argentina. The city is a hot bed for young people, with more than 80000 university students. Many of the best Argentine footballers are Rosarinos, including the world’s best: Lionel Andrés Messi. A third club in the top division will give youngsters more opportunities in the city. Players from a strong academy will also improve the Argentina National Football Team.

Design cues were taken from Rosario’s history. Manuel Belgrano first raised the Argentina flag in Rosario in February 1812. Colours come from a scene depicted in a stained glass above the entrance to the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary next to the flag monument in Rosario.
