My design made into the Kalopsia Collective "Signe” dress for their Stockholm shoot in June. Chosen among many other talented textile and print designers, I was delighted to have my design shot in a beautiful location. Many thanks to Kalopsia Collective!
As part of my undergraduate project ‘The Cutting Line’ I screen-printed three dresses each with a unique design: inspired by Singer sewing machines, I visited the Singer store room in Dunbartonshire. I was particularly interested in the machines from the 50’s / 60’s era and this is what influenced my choice of colour and typography in my designs.
‘The Cutting Line’ was a project as part of my undergraduate degree. I was keen to share with beginners interested in dressmaking how the craft can be straightforward and gratifying, by creating an introductory kit. ‘The Cutting Line’ kit taught novices to make a simple dress with instructions printed in the ‘negative space’ to reduce fabric wastage. My aim was to encourage longevity of clothes, appreciation of the craft and to create a rewarding service for young adults.
Motivated in sharing my enthusiasm for dressmaking, I aimed to engage young adults interested in the craft through beginner sewing kits combined with a youthful, yet nostalgic collection of screen-printed textiles.
Thank you to Helen and Kimberley from Wardrobe Conversations for visiting the DJCAD degree show and writing such a lovely post about my work!
