Designing a new collection

Designs for childrenswear

As we are in a new month I thought I would revamp my blog a little. I was really inspired by Lisa Congdon's wonderful design and I thought this was much more unique and "me"! Obviously it's not like I have anything better to do like an essay or anything, but I did do a little bit yesterday so in my mind that's ok. 

I thought I would share a peek of my newest collection based on my ideas which I posted about here. I went for a slightly different way of working this time around as I wanted to focus on something more illustrative and character based. They will be screen printed at some point in the following two weeks and I also have to present two different colour ways which I'm working on now. Screen printing is rewarding, just as long as you have prepared everything beforehand!

Throughout my first year I thought I was definitely more of an "abstract" kind of designer but this just doesn't appeal to me much anymore. I love drawing  actual things, whether that is fruit or houses or cute little characters I've made up. I also love having the artistic freedom when it comes to character designing; I feel like my imagination is coming out a bit more when I have a story to tell!
