The Juxtaposition of Cultures

In the modern world, people often move between cities and live in different countries for a period of time. This experience of different cultures shapes a new identity and aesthetic. 'The  Juxtaposition of Culture' intends to discover the different layers of each culture, celebrating the uniqueness and creating a modern identity. 

Taking inspiration from Chinese Calligraphy, combined with photographs of English forest and colours from my trip to India, I create a printed textiles collection for fashion. The contrast between controlled drawing and spontaneous screen-printing processes provides a tension. Each piece is a one-off, hand-painted then printed. Through exploring pleating techniques, I suggest three-dimensional shapes and create space between the body and fabrics.

  • My designs are rooted in hand-painting, drawing and mark-making, adding a modern twist to traditional materials to diffuse the boundary between digital and traditional screen-print techniques.

    I have a strong understanding of the fashion industry through working with in-house design teams and freelancing, as well as involvement with sales teams with clients in Europe and the Far East.
