This is one of 3 garments i produced as part of my Final major project for my art foundation. I did a lot of work on all three, designing and printing and embroidering fabrics and trying to learn the subtraction cutting technique, invented by julian roberts. Was so much fun creating them, its made me addicted to print in my garments and it was great to explore with the freedom of the technique, to create silhouettes that i never thought i would be able to. I also got to experiment with welding during my FMP which a lot of the prints i created are based on. I then also created my own hangers using some plaining blades and made labels using metal strips, both of which i found in the metals skip!
This piece is the first i created and uses two different fabrics, which were intended to merge together during the pattern making process. I printed on them by recycling sample floor tiles and using them like lino tiles, which i recommend as a cheap alternative to give an added texture.
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
