Yesterday I completed my defining a specialism project which drew inspiration from abstract expressionism and jewels. Below are some photos of my work displayed on my desk ready to be marked. I designed all the prints by first painting them and then using Photoshop to put them into repeat, I then had them printed onto fabric. I have used embroidery techniques to manipulate and embellish these prints. The three prints displayed next to each other on the wall are the silk scarves which I also had digitally printed. I like to put my work into a fashion context so I have pinned and photographed two of the larger samples onto a dress mannequin to show how they could be made into garments. I photo shopped another sample onto the mannequin. Next up is a making project for which I will be researching next week.
