INTEGRATE

Designed for Autumn/Winter 20/21, INTEGRATE, brings together a collection of knitted fabrics for the fashion market. Deriving its name from a graphic take on the Orkney Islands, landscapes and towns, presented is a collection of genderless designs. The collection prides itself on integrating masculine and feminine ideals through visually discussing genderless fashion and bringing it to the mainstream for everyday consumers. The driving forces in pushing this collection was the desire to create knitted fabric designs and/or garments that utilise silhouette to explore deconstructed notions that do not adhere to gendered stereotypes. Additionally, further influences and exploration pursued a direction of creating a collection which marries bold graphic patterns with added surface textures through combining analogue and digital techniques.
