Exhibition Project

The exhibition project has begun and i'm so excited to see my final collection already! 
I had a rethink about making underwear, as much as I loved making knickers I felt constrained as a print designer to make beautiful prints on such a small scale- I just didn't feel like a small pair of knickers could do my prints justice. So, I am going to make 6 kimonos instead, focusing on combining contemporary print techniques with creative embroidery. I am using silk vicose satin and viscose velvet for my white and white collection. I'm using pearlescent pigments, devore and pigment dyes to create the collection. My tutor described my work as 'modern elegance', which I thought suited my collection quite well! I've made great progress sampling ideas this week, and I just can't wait to see them on kimonos!
