Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.

I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.

EXPERIMENTAL ADORNMENT

DSC00199 DSC00197

After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette  I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.

This particular piece was made during the final year of the FDA in Textiles and Fashion I studied, It was so much fun playing with ideas and pieces of fabric to create something to adorn the body, so I thought why not include it here.

This is a quick ink doodle to show shape on the body, I’m hoping over the next couple of days to make the final pieces and do a photo-shoot.

Making Impressions.

Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.

Stand work/Experiments

A few quick mark making experiments always free the creative side of me, using different tools and black paint to test out directions lines with can be used on the body.

Started a new project, just to keep the grey-cells moving really! So I’m looking into armour and structure probably going to make a little set of body adornments, most likely using constructed textiles.

Inspirational development.

It’s been a while since I have done a paint on the end of a stick, quick pen and paint doodle – it shows! drawn as further research into Iris van Herpen and the use of shapes and adornment on the body.

Manipulating shape and form
