Ideas for Fabric Collection

I considered many combination for my chosen two designs for the Fabric Collection. After designing for interior and stationery, I now decided to design for Fashion to widen my understanding of the marketplace and experiment with all categories. I plan on print my designs digitally and apply further print/stitch/laser cut techniques. Ideally I will be collaborating with a Fashion Design Student to help interpret my designs from a fashion point of view. I plan to deliver, besides the two fabric samples required, also an A3 sketch of a model wearing the garment I imagined for my fabrics. Time permitting, both mine and of my fashion design colleague’s, I would love to make the final garment in real size or on the mini mannequins from the Fashion Design Course.

The first option is one of my two Main with a secondary. I would print them both digitally.

  • I would hand embroider on the main one on the veins connecting the berries, and here and there inside the single berries. I would then add french knots on the background and on some berries with a metallic thread. In addition or as an alternative I would use flocking on the black berries;
  • I would use the Devore Technique on my secondary patterns by applying it to the white berries or in alternative to laser cut the white berries, placing behind them an organza fabric.

The Second Option sees together one of my secondary patterns and a coordinate. I would digitally print them

  • I would then work on my main by hand stitching black leatherette strips along the lines of me sacred geometry pattern;
  • I would use red hand stitching along the red triangles and adding some red, consumed effect foiling spots.

The Third Option as well starts with digitally printed designs. I would combine either my main with my red coordinate or with the purple secondary design

  • I would use foiling on my triangular background grid and leatherette stripes on part of the dark squares;
  • I would use red hand stitching along the red triangles and adding some red, consumed effect foiling spots;
  • I would then work on my main by hand stitching black leatherette strips along the lines of me sacred geometry pattern.

My Final Choice is the combination of my main berries and the red coordinate:

  • I imagine my berries printed digitally in large scale where the biggest berry is as large as the palm of a hand. I would hand embroider on the main one on the veins connecting the berries, and here and there inside the single berries. I would then add french knots on the background and on some berries with a metallic thread. In addition or as an alternative I would use flocking on the black berries;
  • I will digitally print my coordinate and probably leave it this way without additional work so it can fit properly with my more sophisticated main design.4.jpg
