elemental collection

Summer's gone and I thought I should keep my promises. This is my latest work in terms of fashion and my first big MA project, a collection based on elements, geometry and experimental texture manipulation. The main concept was the Deconstruction of Shape, divided into seven techniques. It's basically the second step of my first project, Papercut, only this time, in fabric. It might be hard, at first glance, to consider the pieces as a whole, because the techniques were so different, but I tried keeping everything under the same geometric pattern and colour palette. I named it Elemental, as a mixture of the experimental theme with it's earthy, woody, watery, fiery and windy feel. I'll explain next, the techniques and fabrics used in each garment.

monster pillows

Another 70 pillows project only this time, instead of kitties I made an entire clan of colourful monsters. Every pillow is unique and made out of recycled materials. The big ones are decorative pillows and the small ones are like toys that you can hang around your house, car, bag etc. Let the monster invasion begin...
