Reconstructed Textiles<br /><ul><li>Using Used Fabric's like curtains and furnishings to create garments.
Looking in Charity shops, Vintage shops and ask for donations for fabrics.
The thing that inspired me for this was when I made this jacket on my placement.
However, an issue would be that a lot of the fabrics would be random.</li></li></ul><li>Natural Textures<br />
Natural Textures<br />Looking at Natural Textures: <br />E.g., Coral, stagnates, fungus, bark and floral’s!<br />And then manipulating these onto fabric and garments. <br />I would like to use print, Knit and laser cutting to achieve this.<br />
Enchanted Woodland<br />Developing from the natural textures theme, I would like to look at woodland textures.<br />I was also inspired by the Enchanted palace exhibition at Kensington palace, To create an Enchanted Woodland Theme.<br />
Enchanted Woodland<br />I would like to create a couture collection, for a high end market, concentrating on the detailing rather than complex patterns of the garments based around the story of a girl trapped in an Enchanted Woodland also Looking at the woodland textures and silhouette's. <br />“Step down the stairs under the bed into the Dark Woods, They danced into the dark, into the wild, into the dark wild wood. Each in their own way escaping”<br />- The Room of the Dancing Princess, Kensington Palace.<br />
