Rebecca Teale started designing costumes as a dance teacher for end of year recitals and in latter years she decided to go to BAU University (Barcelona)to expand her knowledge of working with stretch fabrics ( Master Degree in Swimwear & Lingerie design).
The degree course accepted her because of her keen interest and enthusiasm to better herself as an artist.
Learning, in a very short period of time, to make a collection from scratch was a big goal. Only a few will understand the amount of hard work and dedication that exists behind every little detail of such a big task.
Her Brand’s logo , with it´s shape and colour, says exactly who she is and what the Brand is aiming for.
She learnt how to brainstorm and focus on moodboards in order to find the base inspiration-ARCHITECTURE-and consequently building around that, the whole collection.”Casa Batlló” by Gaudí ,the building chosen as her principal visión, gave her 2 colour palettes, fabric print ideas, shapes and silhouettes for the structure of her garments (lingerie and swimwear attire)and also a theme.
Her hard-working attitude during this Master Degree was gratifying, giving her the knowledge of learning how to create from craft the mosaic print (TRENCADÍS) and how to digitalize it with Photoshop to create a continuous print on fabric.
She has mastered the skills of pattern-making and sketching her ideas, both on paper and pc. In addition, she has learnt how to calculate professionally the cost of each ítem in the making and to produce her editorial catalogue and look-book.
Graphic designing her fictional models, technical drawing sheets of each garment, being her own seamstress, practising prototypes and finalising her products,…and so on, are just some of her many accomplishments.
She was also involved prototyping swimsuits for a Brand called CHLOE from Madrid and is an independant entrepreneur in bikini fitness design. Furthermore she also participated in corsetry couture with the amazing Bibian Blue.
She still continues to design costumes for stage shows.
This section is a small glimpse of her capacity and capability.
