For my A2 Textiles coursework I decided to choose the theme of geometry, and have focused on the geometry found within insects. By carrying out initial studies I managed to identify the shapes found above. I have used basic white polycotton and tie dyed it a pinky/beige colour. Using monoprint ink, I created swirls and criss cross patterns in the colours I found within the insects I studied.
I liked the combination of an oversized top and shorts, I was inspired by Marni to go for a more masculine approach and so created boxy-fitting garments. I'm really happy with how this turned out because it matches my design really well. It show cases my printing skills and attention to small detail in objects.
What do you think? :)
