My project originated from my ideas and primary research taken from nature, exploring the layering, textures and details created. My project progressed as I linked some of the resemblances I found in the patterns made up in my nature research to the patterns and grid like structures found in architecture. When beginning to step in to architecture I was instantly drawn to the the structured grid patterns that reminded me or Tartan like prints. The idea of over lapping lines and tartan prints started my research into Vivienne Westwood as it reminded me of some of her most classic and well known designs. Moving my research towards more finalised designs and narrowing down my ideas i aimed to intertwine the two aspects in a way that compliment each other. I liked the idea of using some of my more structured architectural like designs as more of a base fabric and then using my much more intricate flower pieces as motifs and focal points for my samples. Within this project I also touched upon sustainability and when choosing fabrics for my samples I selected some recycled materials such as denim from old pairs of jeans and cotton from bedsheets.
