Patterns for the future

Apocalypsis design project, using my inspirations of a future post apocalyptic world, modern architecture and body adornment, interpreted with some modern abstract prints in colours that can represent future camouflage, which will in turn be used for decorating sections of my designs.

A darker body of colour

design 1 page 2

The image I took from my research to experiment with darker colours, is a piece Harvey Nichols, commissioned Heatherwick studio to produce an installation to celebrate London Fashion Week 1997. I have fallen in love with the work this company produces, one of their more recent pieces being the Olympic Cauldron, for the London 2012 games, if you are unfamiliar with their work check it out it’s amazing.

So using an image of the piece called Autumn Intrusion to experiment with colours on the body, also including design specs of the garment, which can be altered to the wearers’ personal tastes.

Colour on the body

design 2 page 1 blue

Using an image from my research, this one taken from the art exhibition Beyond Infinity by Serge Salat and overlaying a fashion design to experiment with colours, also including design specs of the garment, to show where it can be changed from a “all-in-one” to button up sleeves, which gives the wearer the option to change how this outfit could look depending on their personal style.

New developments.

Development taken from research, experimenting with different colours, textures and shapes on the body – using my adornment experiments.

Feathered reflections

nh drawing 5

Simple pen drawings and other images incorporating  different types of feathers and other parts of my research, which can easily be manipulated into quirky and abstract textiles prints to be used as digital prints to be incorporated into my  collection for EABurns.

Fluid structures on the body.

Bringing research development in line with my colour palette using various forms of media and testing textiles on silhouette designs, keeping things flowing and layered as a “fluid structure“.
