Hand screen-printed repeat designs for silk scarves
‘Light as a Feather’ is a vibrant collection of hand screen printed repeat designs for silk scarves. Working to a live competition brief in collaboration with the Welsh weave company Melin Tregwynt; the collection is intended to co-ordinate with the company’s woven lifestyle products, such as coats, hats and purses. The main objective of my interpreted brief was to add a bit of ‘glitz and glamour’ to the Melin Tregwynt brand in order to appeal to a younger market. Using this concept of glamour and a ‘touch of sparkle’, I took inspiration from the Art Deco period combined with the Winter 10/11 style trend ‘Featherweight’.
The ‘Light as a Feather’ collection features a strong and contemporary linear style, while exploiting feminine and contemporary colour ways in purple, pink, red and green. Beading and fabric manipulation techniques add luxury and sparkly accents to communicate an air of glamour and exclusivity. Hand screen-printing techniques such as pigment and discharge have been utilised to create a professional, commercial and exciting range of print for fashion designs.
