Before the designing for my Final Collection began, I created a range of designs through a Capsule Collection, and used imagery and my own mixed media artworks to inspire my designs.
I used this inspiration and developed it for my Final Collection.
My paper work is just as important as my designs, and for linking my textiles back to Shetland.
Below are some of my original photographs and artworks:
We went down to 'Da Sletts' and the 'Lodberries' as they are two of my favourite parts of Lerwick, and where I took my photographs.
I'm hoping to get some of these actually made up into garments like my CAD simulations I used in my display.
Everything is very exciting at the moment and I will be displaying my collection at the New Designers part 1 Exhibition, which is held every year at the Business Design Center in Islington from the 25th till the 28th of June, so if you are near please come and say Hello!
