BA (Hons) Textile Design for Fashion

Billie Christopher

As a knitted textile designer I aim to create visually exciting pieces that challenge the boundaries of traditional knitting. I enjoy manipulating my knitted pieces with other techniques such as print and beading in order to apply different textures and colours to push the restrictions that sometimes exist within knit. I drew inspiration from butterflies, concentrating on areas where colours merged into each other, in contrast to a more structured area of pattern. I wanted to capture the illusion of layering giving my fabric depth with different techniques as well as keeping it delicate and fragile like a wing of a butterfly.
