This luxury fashion print collection is inspired from the rural countryside of Herefordshire; extracting the pattern, colour and texture from my family farm to portray the energy and beauty in a farming lifestyle. Initially I explored the local landscape, but then became inspired by Bliss Hall Farm, an old family farm. To produce a collection that was personal to me, I studied old family photographs and captured the detail in the derelict barns and old farm machinery. The idea of this collection was to bring the incredible pattern inspired from the country, to the city, so I have visualised my fabrics high-end Burberry-style garments that can be worn by glamorous women.
This print collection explores the pattern, colour and history of Isla Holbox, also known as 'the Maldives of Mexico'. It specifically delves into the yearly art festival held on the island that attracts artists and tourists from all over the world to view buildings painted by famous artists and the public. I wanted extract the details that I felt represented the island and develop these in a contemporary style for printing onto luxury lightweight fabrics to create a Spring/Summer collection.
