Fusion Dreams is an exploration of fashion fabrics, which explore and combine different textile processes upon one fabric sample. Taking inspiration from fabrics created in my Capsule collection but executing and developing ideas further. Colours are taken from creating my own textures referencing abstract art, photographing and putting into negative. The aim of the collection is to expand on skills in in the print room and combine these with digital print; I also wanted to combine more textile processes and techniques to create texture and interesting patterns. I have used Silks, Reactive dyes, flock, foil, lazer cutting and discharge to achieve an intreasting beautiful handcrafted fabric, similarities taken from previous projects.

A coherent collection of fabrics that are decadent and luxurious directed at the couture market, a market which appretiates that hand made quality and time spent creating fabrics. Fabrics are unique and have many inspirations and influences, appealling to women that are intreasted in comfortable bold designs, aspiring to own something not only unique but eye catching to. Spring summer ‘Boho’ really appeals to my collection and thoughts, drape of fabric, simple garments with complex designs and techniques.

Artists such as Yves Klein, Erin O Malley, Gerhard Richter and Morris Louis, of the abstract world, inspire my collection. Fusion Dreams is also influenced by graffti seen in citys, drawing thick and thin lines and combining with abstraction and bold colours. Pasiley, art Noveau, and printmakers such as Timourous Beasties are a huge influence, I love repeats and wanted to expand using different scales and textures to create a 3d quality and depth to my prints.

Influeuetal fashion designers for instance; Amy sai’s vibrant lively collection of scrafs and prints are so inspiring, Mcqueen Plato’s Atlantis Collection and 2010 prefall couture, Valentino S/s 2013, Kenzo collection 2011 for drape and Pilotto 2014 for repeats. Couture fashion is becoming more inspirational and relevant to my collection, printing techniques and aproaches to fabrics are similar to what I envisage.
