The Essence of the Shire collection is based on my home county of Aberdeenshire and is a love letter to my hometown. This collection chose to reimagine the landscapes which shaped me with a abstract, geometric nature whilst also bringing in a wintery colour palette which would truly represent the dreich of Aberdeenshire. Further inspirations were brought into this collection through Ordnance Survey maps and the natural contour lines created by the landscape. The collection has produced satin and velvet fabric outcomes, suitable for a range of interior purposes, including curtains, cushions and lampshades. The final fabric lengths were photographed in the countryside to allow the collection to come full circle and showcase the inspiration alongside the end product.
