Printspiration!


When I first got into fashion fabric prints were a big passion of mine.  My favourites were the unusual, quirky and vintage inspired ones.  I learned how to silkscreen in high school and then did an internship at Peach Berserk during my time in the Ryerson fashion design program.

Nowadays I mainly play with colour and texture but I still like to throw in my experiments in textile printing every once in a while.  I find it's a great way to spice up the solid/plain organic fabrics I work with.  Here's a glimpse at the evolution of my "Doily Feathers" print for Spring/Summer 2011.

After some manipulation on Photoshop the print comes together.

Here it is on my Feather Print Sash Dress.
