MA work

My work focuses on structural forms achievable in knit, concentrating on the use of contrasting weights and textures within a single garment.

The collection, inspired by 1930s avant-garde theatre costume, is driven by the knitwear process and its capacity to create sculptural forms and control colour, texture and pattern, creating lively, modern knitwear.
