“The sea once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever” – Jacques Cousteau
“There’s always an organic dimension to lace that is both natural it exists in nature and wondrous.’’- Solstiss: The Seduction of Lace.
Interlaced sea is my graduate collection. Here are some of my key photographs of the seas water and antique lace that I have collected that are inspiring my fashion textile designs.
My collection incorporates whimsical fine details, elaborate flourishes and layers of textured qualities that evoke the emotional response of love and romance. Full of passion and the timelessness of a past age. Capturing the heart through the delicacy of lace.
I am creating a magical love story, the notion of an enchanted mermaid tale – a tranquil soul, a fluidity of water. These prints express the way that movements of water are interconnected, similarly as love grows and becomes intertwined with the soul.
I will be sharing snippets into my creative journey… In the mean time you can find more of my Textiles Portfolio over on Arts Thread.
