MA work

This collection has been inspired by minerals and crystals. The colour shifts, the unpredictable structures, the glitter and the semi-translucent layering. I have sought to create woven fashion textiles that change colour and pattern depending on the angle of light and the draping. It is a range of fabrics constructed of contrasting materials - from the softest brushed mohair to bouncy shantung silks and crispy nylons. Many of the fabrics have been designed with different qualities on each side. This double-sidedness plays on unexpected and contrasting sensations - balancing aesthetics and touch, emphasising the hand of the fabric.

It has been my goal to marry the creativity and the poetic qualities of fine handwoven textiles with the industrial scale of jacquard weaving. I love the technical challenge of designing and developing fabrics for fashion and it is my wish to be employed in the fashion industry creating innovative high-end woven textiles that surprise and inspire.
