BA (HONS) DESIGN FOR TEXTILES

Serenity by the Sea

‘Serenity by the Sea’ is a fashion-based woven textile collection that tackles issues of inclusivity and mental wellbeing while showcasing a collaboration of my core values and developed skills as a woven textile designer. The collection is inspired by the natural tones and textures found by the sea and explores elements of sensory design including visual, tactile, and scented qualities and their ability evoke a particular mood within the user. I pride myself on my ability to create unique and forward-thinking designs that push the boundaries of textiles and their capabilities, with my project showcasing how both macramé and weave can come together to create highly tactile and playful textile pieces. The final collection is more than just a fashion idea and instead represents an inclusive, sustainable, and mental health driven lifestyle concept that puts the consumer first.
