First Fabric Designs

May 10, 2011 by  

The fabric I designed is back from being digitally printed at Forest Digital. I’ve worked with this kind of printing once before and I like the option to print very short lengths and the fact that there is probably less pollution created due to using ink instead of the chemical materials and water of traditional printing.  The fabric is off to fashion designer Mrs Jones this week and we will be showing the final garments as part of Day + Gluckman’s show in Collyer Bristow Gallery Fifties Fashion and Emerging Feminism later this month. The fabric is inspired by stories of the 50s told to me by a group of Lancastrian’s I met earlier this year for As it Comes.

    Thanks Bronac, I’m drawn to the fact that the flat drawings, which are made through conversation, then become ‘something’ that has another existence (involving movement and conversation) as a garment created by someone else. Hope you can come to see the final work. Alice
