New Designers 2014

Design Work, Photography, Sketching/Drawing, Textiles

Hello! I have recently came back from London as I was exhibiting at New Designers 2014. I was only there for a week but it was an exciting…slightly stressful and eventful visit. I learned a lot and would definitely recommend for anyone to visit. The amount of design work shown from Universities and Colleges throughout the UK was incredible!   I was exhibiting at the T40 and T44 stand. DJCAD, University of Dundee. I featured each of my collections – which was a miracle considering it was a little space! However, even though it was small, I feel it showed my design work well due to it’s location in the main exhibition space!  Here is a preview of my show!

Lots of pattern! My aim as a designer is to create beautiful surface pattern design inspired by the world around us. For this particular set of collections, they have been inspired by Glasgow’s Shipyards and the powerful structures which frame the city of Glasgow. Glasgow is my hometown so it was great for me to do more research into the city’s history in order to create my design work.  As part of my aim for these collections, highlighting Glasgow’s Shipbuilding heritage was an important factor for creating my designs as it encouraged me to design for a public commercial spaces so that I may re-introduce Glasgow’s Industrial heritage.
