This collection is based on the idea of a traditional trousseau, where a bride collects items for use during and after the wedding. I produced a range of samples and a final dress inspired by the Botanical Gardens at Kew. Techniques used include screen printing, laser cutting and digital embroidery.
Inspired by natural forms I developed different techniques using the laser cutter to add depth to my work. This involved overlaying and combining patterns and exploring the use of positive and negative shapes. The motifs were taken from observational drawings, which are an important part of my development.
Fascinated by the work of Leonardo Da Vinci I produced a range of samples with a baroque/ renaissance approach. I used my drawings to create repeat and placement patterns, then developed these further using screen printing.
The focus of this collection was colour. As well as producing digital designs I explored cross dying techniques and screen printing to produce a rich collection.
