IN MOTION

The ‘IN MOTION’ knitwear collection explores graphic, bold knitted fabrics for the womenswear market influenced by the athleisure trend. The designs depict more feminine, avant-garde qualities than usual designs with the aim to use shaping through structure to achieve fluid designs in turn with more structural pieces to inform silhouette. Working within a large scale nature for my sketchbook development, drawing visuals reflect stitch qualities that are then translated into knitwear. Key notions like freedom of movement and fluidity are showcased through the artistic influences of Picasso and Julian McLaughlan. Colour is key within the overall project, combining areas of research, drawing, collage proportions as well as final knitwear designs being enhanced through the use of CAD related software.
