Design intervention - aesthetic renewal
Three selected aesthetics developed over a course of 70 sequential prints
Colour oveprint chart
Visualising the effects of overprinting with sublimation transfer paper and a heat-press machine over the course of 70 overprints
Sublimation overprint on 100% polyester fabric
Digitally printed colours on sublimation paper transferred onto fabric with the use of a heat-press machine. Colour palette overprint sampled to understand colour interaction order outcome.
Eternal New explores modularity, recyclability and information accessibility as tools to enable a transparent circular model for the fashion industry to mitigate its negative impacts.
Intended circular model
The circular lifecycle of traceable modular garments
QR code labels embedded on diverse materials following Hybrid Avoidance Composition
QR codes must follow the HAC methods for correct recycling purposes. The labels were developed according to specific fabric properties and consequently embedded according to different digital processes that align with mono-materiality. From left to right: digital embroidery on organic cotton, sublimation on embroidery on recycled polyester, sublimation on white recycled polyester
Interlocked polyester system
Engineered zero-waste laser processed modular system.
Engineered print for minimum ink usage
Print specifically developed for polyester modular system. Once laser cut and interlocked the white areas will disappear and only grey and black areas will show.
I am an innovative textile designer specialised in Integrated Digital Practice. My work is driven by using textile design as a tool towards constructing applicable projects for the purpose of a circular fashion industry and the many facets it encompasses.
Throughout my two latest projects I aimed to understand current problems that arise from linear fashion production and investigate opportunities that emerge from working towards a circular fashion industry. This entails having a greater understanding of how designers play an important role in an item’s use and lifecycle & perceive future closed-loop recycling schemes as the last resort to an item’s lifetime.
Design Intervention's T-Shirt product explores the potential of design activism and participatory models by investigating the opportunities that lay within material properties and extensive remanufacturing solely through the application of overprinting.
Eternal New explores contemporary labelling systems, zero-waste design techniques, Hybrid Avoidance Composition and disassembly methods on multiple fabrics. The combination of these procedures improving higher user involvement by allowing garments to be disassembled, re-worked and re-shaped to finally wear-out and be recycled.
