Textile + Garment Design

The brief: design a floral pattern, print it digitally, create a garment.

INSPIRATION + PROCESS

Playing with scale and colorways for a floral that would be strong, bold and not little girly. Print design using Adobe Illustrator. Initial dress patterns and muslins were redesigned when a digital printing challenge [mistake] resulted in a much heavier cotton twill to work with. Keeping the bodice concept, the skirt was draped on the form and resulted in exactly the feel I wanted- a dress flowing but strong. An oversized clutch completes the statement.
