Spring/ Summer 17
Within Marine Morphology I explored the forms of structure that are associated with the ocean. This included looking at a variety of different forms for example: rocks, water and shells. This research helped influence this idea of cluster and I wanted to create chaotic and bold swatches that represented the textures I had come across when researching the concept. The colour palette was subtle with a hint of lime to really make it stand out. Morphology meaning ‘to study the form of things’ really made me concentrate on what I what producing and how to translate my initial drawings in the beautifully crafted samples. For this project we had to concentrate on a certain designer. I choose Delpozo as a main source of inspire just from the way he creates embellishments really represented what I wanted to achieve . His expressive way of connecting fabric and thread is something I admire, simple but beautiful, the way he manipulates materials into structured form was something I was trying to re create with my own personality. This collection was targeting high end womenswear for spring/ summer 17 therefore I had to really consider the materials used to make it so luxurious.
