This week we also started developing print designs for our new silk scarves range. Since our last studio update, we have continued moodboarding into other themes (it's highly addictive) and have some initial sketches underway - exciting stuff! Altogether we will have eight scarf patterns including florals and feathers, but today we wanted to share with you the progress of our beetle print.
As you can see in our moodboard top of page, we drew inspiration from the beetle's distinct silhouette and how the beautiful insect has influenced fashion and design. Last week saw the closure of the V&A's most popular show in history that was the Savage Beauty exhibition - a celebration of the extraordinary talents of Alexander McQueen. The late fashion designer was famously inspired by nature, particularly insects, and often presented their colourful patterns in a kaleidoscopic manner. From this, we explored graphical, line motifs to incorporate into the final designs.
Here's our progress so far...
Whatever you do, have a fabulous weekend. Until next time!
