A Mini Collection
Here is a project that i have just finished in my 2nd year at university. The brief was to design a 'Mini Collection' from a chosen photograph and create one of the designs. I decided to chose the 'Ginza-Tokyo' photograph because i'am really inspired by contemporary architecture and Tokyo has the most inspirational, futuristic buildings. This is something i wanted to show through my designs. I wanted to re-create the pattern from the rooftop which lead me to experiment with machine embroidery to create the pattern. My main inspirations for this project are Tokyo architecture, contemporary artist Yayoi Kasama and Yves Saint Laurent's 1965 Fall/Winter 'Mondrian' collection.
