New Designers 2012

I have just been lucky enough to be able to display my final major project graduate collection at the New Designers exhibition in London, Islington, at the Business Design Centre! It was a great opportunity and amazing experience with so much incredible work displayed from graduates across the country, from print, knit, weave, embroidery and jewellery!

The design centre was extremely busy with graduates trying to display their work in preparation for the opening!

I decided to use a simple layout for my garment fronts so that they stood out clearly, and because of the colours and combinations of imagery I didn't feel it was neccessary to put imagery around them.

Our fabulous stand at New Designers!!

The two new additions to my collection.

I was very, very happy as I got the results of my degree and found out that I had achieved a 1st!! :D

My wonderful textiles friends also showcased their graduate collections, with amazing designs and swatches and finished products. Here is some of their work.....

Helen Whitworth's theatrical jewllery pieces!

Miss Zoe Ward's boyswear print collection.

Lily Atkinson produced vintage inspired knitwear.

Knit used to create contemporary jewellery by Rebecca Kaiser!

Childrens hand knit footstools by Sam Wilson.
