BEAUTY WITHIN THE DETAIL A waffling structure has been formed into a collection of woven soft furnishings for a high end/high street market. Taking inspiration from the hidden beauty that lies within, the architectural formations have influenced aesthetically pleasing décor and accents of colour. This collection provides comfort as this is key when designing for all seasons.
Driven by an interest in how fibre characteristics can be manipulated, The Shape of Water uses high twist yarns and simple structures to create hand woven textiles that contract upon interaction with water. The result is a collection envisioned for high-end women’s blousing that embodies the tranquillity and beauty in water movement, through organic surface textures and soft minimalist tones.
Project Title: Growing Growing is an all season, luxury, woven collection designed for millennials. Inspiring botanicals have lead to the use of elegant hues, intricate twills, lustrous materials and delicate finishes, creating maximalist soft furnishing and upholstery fabrics. Growing interiors closely duplicate the calming, comforting feelings induced by the outdoors, bringing them into our home sanctuary.
