I actually thought it was okay. I'm hoping i did well.
I am actually so relieved that my teacher told me to have 2 historical developments a few days ago!
some of the multiple choice were annoying! I couldnt determine what was the 'best' answer.
What sections did you find difficult?

The first short answer question was the maturity stage one right? It was about product life cycle (a painful dot point).It was more to do with the business side of textiles. so there is the Introduction stage, Growth Stage, Maturity Stage where there is the greatest sales & profit, Supply meets the demand of the market, market becomes saturated with the product and competition increases which means marketing increases and then the Decline Stage is the last stage.

I was only lucky i had briefly read over this before the exam!
I just wrote: silk, low twist, satin weave for the formal dress question and then explained why, but i dont know whether that was right or not :/

I hated the vintage question, i did not know what to write!! :/
Did you do 14 or 15 for the last section? :)

I can't completely recall the vintage question but I remember talking about there not being a need for as many clothes to be produced because of the vintage trend and that would then have a positive effect on the environment etc etc

I did question 14 but found the first part of it quite difficult as when my class looked at it we considered how her work has influenced trends not how trends have influenced her work
what question did you pick?

Yeah, okay, i think i wrote something similar :)
Yeah i did 14, We barely studied how they influenced trends or were influenced by trends! I had to loop in something about Australian beach culture and the loosely designed garments. It was an awful answer! haha
