Experimental Process is a first year project that I’m using to help explore my style as a textile designer. The initial research was inspired by an exhibition that portrayed a “procession”. I took further inspiration from the childlike structures in the foreground of the display. This lead me to research protests within the younger generation and look at the punk era during the 70s. I explored Vivienne Westwood and Jordan mooney and combined the edgy free-spirited culture with protests. My final samples support the monochrome colour palette of the era using shades of black and a pop of vibrant pink. I used rigid denim, chiffon a metallic polyester based fabric that support an autumn/winter 2023 collection.
