Wouldn’t it be amazing if all buildings were so pretty? #architecture #Photography #Glastonbury
These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
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.
Conveying layers in different media, and experimenting with how it could be used on the body.
Striking body adornment, really eye catching and inspiring. Re-blogged from Alexandros Nikolis Pinterest board body adornment.

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

Iris Van Herpen: The Alexander McQueen Of Tech Geeks
As one blogger put it: “I think we just found our next fashion legend. HO. LY. SHIT.
Van Herpen manipulates technology to test all the limits of fashion. Creating pieces by combining modern techniques and traditional sewing.
Even if you don’t have a great deal of interest about fashion technology, this stuff is worth looking at . New ideas and digital technology are already having a great deal of input into the industry, whether you’re talking digitally printed fabric or 3-D creations. It will only become more exaggerated and prominent. Van Herpens’ work, is like a sneak peek into the future about where the fashion world is headed.
The inspirational designer Kate Cusack, If you are unfamiliar with her work – check it out here, creates pieces made with everyday materials which are worn as body adornment.
With experiences in many place including costume design, her work is striking and shown to the best in Zipper Jewellery. All of these pieces relate to the body, while combining theatrical influences and transformation of items, made in materials that are more seen and not used.
