Graduate Project / 2018 - 19

My final graduate collection from 2018 - 19

Audacious Eclecticism

Audacious Eclecticism is built on the sustainable notion of ‘the new vintage’. Designing for the idea that the pieces will become ‘retro’ and ‘vintage’ after years of wear rather than today’s typical fast fashion, where an item is worn once and then thrown away. The collection is made up of mainly woven samples but accompanied by knit and print to allow for a more diverse collection. Synthetic materials will be the main focus, using things such as fancy yarns for the interesting textures as well as the durability. I have designed for an intermediate market level, a market for people in-between high street and high end. I want people to engage with their clothes, love what they buy and want to keep it for years to come, fighting the accumulation of fast fashion and allowing people to be more individual within their wardrobes. My dissertation covered the loss of individuality through fast fashion, exploring how people have lost touch with their identities and everyone is dressing the same. I want to tackle this, creating limited quantity garments that are of high quality and durable materials to be worn and cherished for years to come. Audacious Eclecticism as the name suggests, is inspired by a variety of things including past iconic decades such as the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s as well as old buildings and toys.

Phase 1 Sampling

Phase 1 Sampling

A board consisting of woven samples from the first phase of my final year degree in Textile Design. The woven samples are made up of synthetic yarns to allow for longevity. The samples are woven using a deflected double cloth threading and a half pointed half straight threading to create these abstract, unique structures that in conjunction with the yarns has created a durable and interesting cloth quality. Yarn wrappings show the colour and yarn combinations to create the bold samples.
