Esme Gill-Brown
Using a wide array of techniques and machines, I was able to convey my illustrative style by using knit as a medium to draw with and views the body as a form on which to express emotion and meaningful concepts. Viewing clothing as a communicative device, my work strives to convey an important message and a personal journey. The collection explores the idea that people are distancing themselves from being present and are subconsciously uncomfortable with their existence. Somewhere between the futuristic technology and comforting nostalgia, there must be a present feeling within us, and this feeling is what the collection aims to discover. This resulted in a personal and conceptual collection with a wide range of reference points. I visualise my concept using nostalgic imagery, soft, hazy colours, characterful motifs, intricate embellishment and silhouettes that re-imagine the classics.
