BA (Hons) Textiles

Louise Adele Whitaker

The inspiration for my final collection initially developed from a love of all things retro but it soon came to embody a more modern and surreal influence.  My fascination with the transience of light, iridescent surfaces and reflections led me to explore photography and use the scanner as a drawing tool. The blurring and distorting of imagery, making volumes appear to move and shift, has become a key feature within my work. Layering of shape and colour has also been integral in creating my drawings and subsequent designs, allowing some aspects to be revealed and others to be hidden. Throughout the course of the year I have repeatedly come across examples of the ever growing symbiotic relationship between fashion design and interior design. I have embraced this contemporary development by using a boutique shop as the context and designing for wallpaper/ upholstery fabrics as well as prints for fashion garments.
