BA Textile Design
Inspired by e-waste, circuit boards and electrical components, this project explores the futuristic aesthetic of e-textiles in fashion, and how connections are built between knitted textiles and the digitally connected, electronic world. For decades, shapes and structures including stripes and checks have been recognised as classics that rarely go out of style. Renowned designers and brands such as Paul Smith, Burberry and Missoni are known for their use of geometric patterns. Their extensive archives of past collections demonstrate how heritage can be used to rework and design effectively for the future. A contemporary approach combining historical heritage and futuristic electronics has been explored, producing a diverse Ready-to-Wear knitwear collection for men.
