My final garments are a combination of all research and experimentation throughout my MA. I have been inspired to create my own up-cycled garments using unwanted and end of line fabrics in a creative way. Using my own illustrated digital print, which has been designed to include applique sections allowing the up-cycled clothing to seamlessly blend in with the overall aesthetic. 1990s hip hop has influenced my silhouette design, combining with ‘kids core’ that give my designs a whimsical and childlike feel. Applique and digital print design has been inspired by looking at old patterns, taking inspiration from the details and sewing lines. All sewing details have been designed with craft and DIY in mind, I am hoping to inspire creativity and innovation through up-cycling clothing as an exciting approach to sustainable fashion.
