Chelsea graduate 2011, subject specialism Print/CAD.
Using detailed illustrations, fabric manipulation and embroidery, Catherine creates hand-crafted objects and beautiful printed textiles for fashion and interiors. Her work combines a contemporary twist on the traditional alongside an appreciation for the environment with designs that are emotionally durable and recyclable.
Playing with ideas of recycling and sustainability, in this collection the bird top and house skirt holds the patterns to make 3 dimensional objects, whilst the bottom two dresses are reversible with a different design on each side.
Inspired by the beauty of summer flowers and vintage fabrics, for this project I produced a range of floral designs and 3D fabric pieces. Printed fabric was stiffened, burnt around the edges and heavily embroidered to create flowers with a rustic, natural look.
