New Designers

Recently, I was chosen to showcase my most recent collection ‘Favela’ at New Designers 2017 in London at the  Business Design Centre. This was an amazing opportunity that enabled me to showcase my work to textile and fashion industries and gain lots of inspiration from other talented designers. I’m looking forward to what could be in store for me in the future.

I am also very happy to announce that I will be graduating with a First Class Honours in Textile Design!

Degree Show

The Art and Design Degree show at De Montfort University is well underway! Not long until it’s over though, so make sure you come and see the talent of the amazing designers and artists across the University before this Thursday.

It’s been really exciting for me as I have been able to showcase my collection to textile industries and gain great contacts. Hopefully this will lead to some experience within this industry, helping me to get where I aspire to be!

In other news, I have been selected to showcase my collection at New Designers this year in London! This will be at the Business Design Centre from the 28th to the 1st of July. Very excited about this!

Hand in!

My final major project, ‘Favela’, is done! It’s been a long and tiring journey but I’ve enjoyed it so much, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for me in the near future.

After having some well earned rest, my plan is to continue creating designs that excite and encourage me to fulfil my true potential as a Printed Textile Designer.

Photo Shoot

Today I went to the photography studio and photographed some of my work on a mannequin. This was a real eye opener for me as I had to adjust and manipulate my fabrics to fit the figure. Some of my designs work better then others, take a look for yourself!

Paper to fabric

It has been a bit of a struggle trying to get my paintings onto silk, particularly because the reactive dye printer keeps packing up. However, today I’ve managed to get a few samples done (A3 size) to get an idea of scale. I’m really looking forward to getting these blown up to A1 or bigger. Stay tuned!

Cross Dyeing Devore

I’ve got a new obsession: cross dyeing devore. I’ve been trying so many different colour combinations with silk/viscose fabric. It’s been a bit of a challenge as some dyes don’t work, but some have worked amazingly! I’ll be making my favourites into samples next week so stay tuned!
