neon geometry

This 3-piece collection was a part of my (successful) application portfolio for admission to University of Borås, Sweden. Below is my color, pattern and material inspiration for the three final designs. 

MOODBOARD

I got inspired by geometric shapes and patterns, bright colors in combination with three textile techniques: ikat weave, shibori resist stitch dyeing, contemporary embroidery and mirror work.

COLOR CARD

I've chosen bold neon colors for my collection: bright orange, fuchsia, indigo, sky blue and white - to create a contrast between traditional textile techniques and contemporary design.

DESIGN PROCESS

I started with choosing the colors and sketching some ideas, geometric shapes, patterns and ikat inspired weavings with watercolors: zig-zag, polka dot, batik.

TEXTILE SAMPLES

(1) ikat zig-zag weaving (watercolor)

(2) indigo shibori stitch resist print

(3) contemporary embroidery with mirror work on the indigo dyed

    cotton

personal

collection

My first collection for AW17 consisting of 12 pieces in 4 materials with the 'Rustic' theme and myself as a client. I have created two moodboards and a color card to visualise my inspiration. The goal was to learn how to work with different fabrics, trimmings and accessories and their combinations when sourcing the materials and creating a coherency within the collection.

Devī

A single item collection of five tops for SS18. Part of the assignment was to create a fictional company with a conceptual collection and visualise it with four specific moodboards. My company, 'Devī' ('goddess', from sanskrit), focuses on pregnant women in all stages of pregnancy and after it. It's designed to fit the ever changing woman's body during pregnancy and can be worn even after it, as the garments are made to be versatile, adjustable and comfortable. I believe every woman is beautiful just the way she is in every shape, color and age, and this collection celebrates this unity and diversity. I drew my inspiration from Indian hand block prints, feminine silhouettes of regency era, comfortable materials and timeless colors of the natural world.

By collaborating with local artisans from Andes and Patagonia they support and preserve their traditional skills of knitting, weaving and plant dyeing.
