Out of touch: a collection that explores soft lustrous textures and delicately layered details for women ageing gracefully. Older women are often ignored when it comes to fashion once they reach a certain age; finding it hard to buy clothing that fits or compliment their style which has created a barrier between the consumer and the designer. This collection demonstrates a variety of multimedia processes: knit, print, laser cutting and embroidery to push tactile manipulation and create an interactive, comforting, and ethereal collection of textiles. Soothing exploration of tones and hues uplift the collection to portray an essence of calm and serenity with contrasting textures of mattes and sheens to elevate this feeling. My work experience includes working within the design team for Anna Valentine producing placement ideas and hand embroideries on couture and ready-to-wear garments. In the future, I would love to expand my design and technical knowledge within embroidery and art.
