Hello Again!

Hello! Sorry I have not updated for a while I have been elsewhere updating the blog for our Graduate Show!! Here is a brief description of my collection -

"My collection is inspired by eighteenth century England design, in particular the Georgian interiors of Holkham Hall. I found the tapestries really interesting. I liked how a flat 2D object conveyed so much detail and depth. Using drawn and photographic trompe l’oeil techniques I have tried to create flat jersey garments that give the illusion of drapes, folds and worn details.

To capture some of the feel of the tapestries that inspired me I have incorporated hand sewn tapestry sections into some of my garments.

I also found the collections of mundane objects in the kitchens of Holkham Hall oddly inspiring, and I have used the idea of a collection of jelly moulds to create a whimsical and unique design feature to add a touch of humour to my collection."
