Dark Bloom 

My collection is aimed towards men’s suiting’s and jackets using a combination of different weighted wools and a thick silk.
Large scale monochrome ink paintings formed the basis of my collection. Bunches of flowers such as peonies grouped together to form my patterns, considering different details and proportions of floral subject matter.   
I developed a means of translating my paintings into fashion prints using a range of both screen and digital print techniques including; Cyanotype, Acid dye, Reactive dye and Digital print. These techniques helped me to identify my colour palette. I combined these techniques and colours in layers to achieve my final printed collection.
