BA (HONS) DESIGN FOR TEXTILES

Statement Scarves

A woven scarf collection was produced which reflects the proportions of colour and texture found in visual studies of dried flowers on a larger scale to suit market trends.

An introduction of printed elements and creation of large-scale woven designs gives a fresh and contemporary edge to the collection and helps to differentiate it from what is currently found on the market. The prints are inspired by textures and collage pieces taken from sketchbook work and visualised through Photoshop to see how they work on the woven designs.

This collection of woven unisex scarves is aimed at the luxury end of the market, targeting young and trendy Gen-Z consumers with bold and ostentatious designs which will become a statement piece for their wardrobe.
