Calculation > Play

A collection inspired by play. Inspiration gathered from playgrounds invited experimentation of texture, weight and colour. The project became focused handmade textiles dyed and crafted.  I chose to look at tetra pak patterns and domestic carton templates creating interlocking shapes by fusing light and heavyweight silks,. The cape originated from a life size ‘milk carton’ sample and how it hung on the stand. Design development used these principles and silhouette samples were created that can be changed using pull ties hidden inside the skirt.
