My 6-look collection is a canvas for the exploration of woven and geometric pattern, drawing inspiration from Bauhaus textile design and mid-century garden furniture. Silhouette and garment construction is considered to offer minimal fastenings, allowing for the fabric to contort, gather, wrap, and tie around the wearer’s body, rather than using traditional fastening methods (e.g. buttons, zips, etc). Minimal fastenings is an important feature in my collection, drawn from my own experiences of clothing feeling uncomfortable on the skin, this collection allows for the individual to wear the garments as loose or fitted as they choose. The collection features varied handwoven checked print designs developed from my paper weaving, digitally printed onto jersey and organic cottons. Other garments feature Harris Tweed wool, as well as mohair & cotton jacquard knitwear.
