Recent CAD reworks for Eyefix Designs.
With Fashion week gone.I have fallen for next seasons talented fashion designers and their spectacular collections of garments and accessories. Mary Katrantzou, presented her Spring/Summer 2013 collection at the Topshop Show Space at the London Fashion Show. The global retail sensation is known for her hyper-real digital print designs and has chosen to print her latest collection with images known to the world through banknotes and stamps. Roberto Cavalli found his latest inspiration on a recent trip to India, thus his Just Cavalli collection was full of prints of sacred elephant motifs, temples, exotic florals and, of course, plenty of animal patterns, from leopard to crocodile. Still, he stayed true to his signature, infusing a hip-hop vibe that came through in jewelry, baseball caps and silhouettes that ranged from baggy shorts to body-hugging dresses. Queen fashion bee Anna Dello Russo has created an accessory range for h&m it is of course…big, loud and completely over the top think snakes that wrap around your wrist, alligators covered in glittering stones, big stones, bright colours and lots and lots of gold its outrageous and fabulous, just like Anna.
The final visualisation for the project Bubbles of Colour, shows two images of the two finished lengths. The lengths are aimed at women’s accesories such as silk scarves. Each length is two metres long, containing five digitally printed images from my primary research and printed on top using a silk screen, full strength white discharge and procion p print pastes. I am really pleased with the final results and wouldn’t choose to do anything differently.
Bubbles of Colour project.
These are some of the images of my final textiles, print project completed, inspired by the previous project Waves of Colour. The images show some of the photographs that the project was based on and some finished textile samples. Yet again I liked the idea of exploring the task of mixing digital printing and traditional screen printing together on one sample. I chose to work on Silk Satin fabric, using full strength white discharge and procion p print pastes.
A short trip to Milan, Italy
Waves of Colour project.
These are some of the images of a textiles, print project previously done, based on Cornish landscapes. The images show some of the sketchbook work and finished textile samples. In the process of making a collection of samples, the main focuses for the project were the primary research, the photos that I have taken in Cornwall and colour. I explored the task of mixing digital printing and flat colour on fabric.
