Europe Tunics

Grand Rapids, Mi...






So I’ve become a little obsessed with digital textile printing and creating my own printed fabrics. I wanted to create some one of a kind pieces to take with me while I studied abroad in Europe for 4 weeks this summer. My favorite would have to be the one I wore on the beaches of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France. It was based on my astrological sign of Pisces and was a mirror image print I created using Photoshop. Another tunic I made was worn the day we went to various Paris farmer’s markets and was inspired by the elements of Air and Earth. The last print I made was a fun “Pineapple Grenade” print I wore the day we arrived in London. It was fun wearing my own original pieces while seeing the beautiful areas of Europe.

    That first one on the beach is a huge thumbs up! Goegeous fabric! It looks unusual but at the same time wearable for a wide range of men personalities I think (compared to your other makes that do require guts and self confidence

      I love the beach one too and I’ve had two people try to buy it off me. Thank you so much for your comment! :)

      It’s not hard and perhaps I should teach it sometime. All you need mostly is Photoshop and an experimental mindset!
