FMP zero waste 3

Cambridge, Unite...






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 i found in the metal skip and labels using, metal strips i also found in the skip!
This is the final piece i created. I screen printed this piece, unlike the other printed fabrics. i also used an accent of an antique striped block print i brought whilst on a research trip to amsterdam, which started my printing obsession! The pink pieces attached to the front are enlarged versions of a welded piece i created, which ran through all three pieces as cut outs in the garment to create the silhouettes.

    Love this and have wanted to learn his cutting method. Alas the video link is gone now- he did lecture in New Zealand a few months ago. May have to get the book.

      Yeah keep looking, i found the videos before he changed all his website, all i found is a link at the end of this page: http://www.julianand.com/universeFILE/Act_3/Professorial_Lecture.htm
      but it didn’t seem to work-maybe you will have better luck :)

    I love the print on this dress and the splash of hot pink on the neckline. It makes this piece very interesting to look at. Absolutely unique! :)
