Beautiful Butterflies

March - May 2017

‘Beautiful Butterflies’ was my first self-directed project for University. I created two collections of fabrics - one made up of digitally printed fabrics and the other made up of hand-printed fabrics. I have used a combination of screen-printing, sublimation printing, laser cutting and appliqué. The dyes I have used include acid dyes, illuminating dyes, direct dyes, discharge (bleach out) dyes and devoré paste. I have used silk/viscose velvet, polyester crepe de chine, polyester satin and silk habotai. My designs are all fashion focused.
