Hi Everyone, Here is my latest collection of work, inspired by Chinoiserie. It has been an interesting journey, learning new skills and techniques, and finally seeing my imagery and designs come to life on fabric and through embellishment.
Above is one of my fashion embellishment designs, i used lots of luscious colours and fabrics, trying to create an luxurious feel. To the right is my first drawing for my Chinoiserie project. I loved using the shimmering golds and the beautiful blues. Drawing this also taught me that taking your time and being patient, is worth it in the end.
To the left and below is my final printed design. As you can see i used my first Chinoiserie drawing in my final design. I chose to use a blue in the final design too, but went for a stronger navy colour.
Hope you have enjoyed looking through a little of my first collection.
Im just working on a new design brief at the moment for interior and fashion design!
I will be designing and making a length of fabric and a garment design inspired by Chinoiserie. I'm just in the beginning stages at the moment, drawing up inspiration from books and journals, but i will be starting my design development next week. I am looking forward to seeing my final design, s i have never done anything like this before! Ill keep you all posted and i will put some images on next week!
This collection has been inspired by some of my drawings from my first visual language module. I have used a lot of bright colors and beautiful shimmering foils to help create layers and layers of interesting detail.
